See I place my words in your mouth!
Today I appoint you over nations
and over kingdoms,
To uproot and to tear down,
to destroy and to demolish,
to build and to plant.
I have many changes happening at the family care center where I work.
I will be getting a new classroom and a new co-teacher
and a new group of toddlers.
I am at once anxious and excited.
I am going to be building a new classroom
and my influence will be more evident.
To build and to plant.
But, new things are hard...
and I am also going to have to demolish and destroy.
And, I am going to have to discern...
what to demolish, what to rebuild, and what to tweak a little bit.
When I first started working at this center,
I thought my co-teacher and I would never have anything in common.
We are different in almost every outward way.
But, as it turned out, we are similar in many inward ways.
We made a really good team.
My new co-teacher and I are very different also.
There will be a learning curve while we figure one another out.
This time I have more experience
and I suspect I may be the one doing more of the leading.
Change can be hard...
but it is also challenging and exciting and uplifting!
