  1. I love lightning bugs, and this post really hit home! 😉 Made me wanna go lighting bug hunting as well… 😛

    1. I’m sorry for the late response! School started so I’ve hit the ground running. Lightning bugs make me miss the summer :). I love those summer evenings!

      1. No worries at all. I so understand that. 🙂 Oh wait, are you a teacher, or a parent? Aw, yes! They were the best!

          1. Oh, go girl!! My brother and sister in law are PE teachers, and they stay super busy during the start of school. What grade do you teach? 🙂 I know you have to be a great Mom and teacher because of how your posts teach! 😉 Oh, good! We all look forward to it.

            1. What a blessing you are to me tonight! I am a speech-language pathologist for students 5th through 8th grade. Let me tell you, they teach me something new every day! They are pretty awesome kids!!

              1. Aw, I’m just glad to be a help! It’s great talking with you. 😀 Oh wow, that’s such a great thing you do! That sounds like such a difficult job, but I’m so glad God has blessed us with teachers like you. Aw, that’s so sweet! 😀 I know that people sometimes look down on kids with speaking issues; I once had problems myself. It’s great that God shows that each child is so special with very brilliant minds. 🙂 We all have problems, and bless the hearts that help us overcome them! If I may ask: How long have you been a teacher?

                1. This is my 20th year. I work with articulation, fluency, language impairments, developmental disabilities, social language, and I’m also a reading specialist. My first few years were rough, but God made me stay put kicking and screaming. I look up to Him ever day and thank Him. You are so right. He gave each one of us special gifts to help one another. I know you are blessing people daily.

                  1. That’s terrific; you’ve been doing that for so long! What a list! 😀 You work with a variety of things then. This may be a weird question, but: What’s your most favorite thing to work with? Haha, God is great like that for sure; when we want to quit, He pushes us to keep going! Amen, that is the way to true joy and peace right there. 🙂 He is amazing! Aw, well thank you! I pray I do! I’ve been praying about my future career goals, and have had being a Pre-K teacher on my heart for awhile now. I know that you’re a different teacher than that, but I feel that maybe God has sent me teachers like you to talk to about leading kids. 🙂 I think it’s another encouragement in His leading. ;(

                    1. Yes!! We need great Pre-K teachers. If God is nudging you to go in that direction, then my advice to you is listen and follow. God has a funny way of not giving up on His nudging. Pray for His will, be obedient, and He will take care of the rest. He may already have a specific child in mind that He would like you to touch. You will be the first line of defense in a child’s desire to develop the love for learning and there is no greater role. That is wonderful!

                    2. Aw, thank you so very much! This was such a great encouragement and inspiration for me today. 😀 That He does! I really appreciate that thought, for I absolutely needed it today! <3 I will pray for you as you continue to touch young lives! You're a blessing, my friend. 🙂

                    3. You are as well! Many blessings to you as you take this time to search for answers that only He has. He’s got this and so do you. I’ll be praying over your journey. Good night and God Bless!!

                    4. Aw, thank you! Those prayers are certainly needed. I hope we get to talk more later on. 🙂 God bless and keep you!

  2. You remind us that God is interested in our minds and emotions as well as our souls! That’s how you respond and we need to remember to give all ourselves to Him –
