Our School Budget did not pass last night. The threats of 37 more cuts (24.5 of us received our slips on Monday) is looming in the forefront of my colleagues minds.
My son, who will be a senior next year, faces the possibility of no music for him next year. With one of the top band programs in the nation, our board of education is seriously considering killing the music department (eliminating 13 more positions in the department) - but will continue to pay 6 figure salaries to teachers in other content areas.
Oh I could keep speculating and worrying - but that will not change a thing. Worry changes nothing. It just takes our minds from the moments of joy in today.
God has all the puzzle pieces. He knows how it will all fit together. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In ALL your ways, acknowledge Him - and He WILL direct your paths."

Lillacs as the buds begin to open
Change is usually pretty challenging. It's hard in the fall to say goodbye to all the flowers as they wither and die. But how awesome is spring with the joy of newness and possibilities.
Today I am thanking God for His constant faithfulness and the peace and comfort I have been surrounded with the last couple of weeks.
