So I always hear this term in the Bible about God toward us...but I got to experience it in my class the other day. It had been a rough day (a precursor to this lovely snow, my kids are great barometers) and I was at my wit's end regarding their procedures and how they were working. So after chewing them out (although, it's only a few that cause all of the problems) for what I felt what the 100th time...a boy comes up to my desk and hands me a page of small stickers. He told me they were for our 100 % papers...his kindness and generosity to me was unbelievable. It was so sweet that he had thought of me and gave them to me, especially on a day where I felt like Miss Viola Swamp (Miss Nelson is Missing, if you haven't read it). Kids are great at showing how God feels towards us...always loving, always giving, always generous...May I remember this lesson and extend it back to the kids in my classroom.
