on schools in a note to a friend
schools are a reflection of our human condition. they are a petri dish of our world. they are beautiful and they are ugly..beautiful because in public and in private there are teachers that love children and want to serve kids and one another..but ugly because both have their problems and issues..both have flaws too numerous..and we can not fix them on our own..and when you really get into them and get dirty in them...teaching or volunteering...you will see them as they really are and they will make you long for Jesus.
the school puzzle is an unsolvable puzzle on this side of heaven...made me want to despair as an educator. and probably feels similar as a parent trying to find a place to send your child.
focus on the truth..the simple. there is no despair in Christ. He can take any bleak situation and make light..He can work all things for His glory.
remember our soul/sole purpose on this earth is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
