Yes, indecision. Still. And it’s only been two hours since Catechism and I’m still torn. Miss Jenny said, “Follow your heart.”

“My heart says stay. My logic says quit”, I reply without hesitating.

Our class was smaller and more intimate, and Miss Jenny and I both thought sitting on the floor (for the first time ever), would be a good state change.

If you’ve never tried to capture and maintain a group of children’s attention between 6:30pm and 7:45pm, then you have not experienced one of life’s great challenges. Whew, it’s one tough teaching assignment.

But tonight (actually last night) was glorious (not perfect), and if they were all like this, it’d be easier. But they won’t be and it isn’t.

  1. Dear Jeff,

    Just know that I am praying for you. I am praying God to give you a clear indication as to what you need to do. No one can speak for you, and Miss Jenny sounded wise in knowing it wasn’t going to be her decision. It is yours, and I pray that you can see the right decision and have the Peace of God about the decision, one way or the other.


  2. Just because quitting is easy and makes the most sense, there’s still a voice that says, “Don’t quit.”

    Thank you, Bob, for your continued support. Most people would not labor over such a small contribution to society.

    I cannot explain why I still am.
