"...The day begins and now let's see what this new world will do for me."
Schonberg's Les Mis fills my classroom after a brief National Honor Society induction meeting, greeting kids in the hallway, getting a trigonometry lecture ready (not really), pouring the black caffeinated lukewarm beverage down my throat...
"...sack the girl to-dayyyyyyy!
Right, my girl, on your way!!!"
LORD, grant us this day the peace that passes understanding.
Fill us with Your wisdom, Your love, Your joy;
be glorified to-day by all we say and do.
Pour out your favor and graces especially on those who are hurting to-day,
those who are angry,
those who are lonely,
those who don't know what to do.
Dona nobis pacem.
