this is such beautiful truth that i needed to read amidst graduation craziness. thanks keri! you are great!
yesterday, i was thinking of how transitional life is. always moving and changing - constantly being uprooted.
and then i realized that to be rooted in the lord means to have a steady, stable, constant home. if i am, or feel that i am, being “uprooted” from a city, a school, a job, then…
Helloooooo Tumblr friends!! My best friend recently got engaged and I am looking for wedding blogs to send her way. Any favorites?
WANT THIS. this picture reminds me of my favorite scene in Beauty and the Beast. I would love to have a library like this in my future house.

Not a girl, not yet a woman
Thank you Britney Spears for these lyrics that I can so closely identify with this morning. So today, one of my students named Patrick, (my favorite….but remember teachers don’t have favorites) walks into class with a burning question to ask me. “Ms. Neale, I was thinking. You aren’t a teenager but you’re not a woman. What are you?” My host teacher, overhearing his question, quickly comes to my defense and strongly states, “PATRICK! SHE IS A WOMAN!” And Patrick responds, “No she’s not. She’s not married.” Patrick is one of the most genuine students I know, so I am postive that he was not trying to insult me in any way. He just truely thought that to be a woman, you must be married. Maybe he learned this at home, or perhaps this is an idea that our culture has silently taught him. Either way, it gave me a great laugh this morning.
