High Five for Friday

Happy Friday! Who doesn’t love weekends?!

Well today for High Five Friday I will share my 5 highs of the week :)

  •  I have an interview today at a preschool/childcare center (just for a summer position) which is good because I love having time off but I also like to keep busy and I think this would be good for me. I also got an exciting call from the superintendent of West Forks School District which is only 8 miles from where I live. He wants me to get a credit audit by the Board of Education Examiners to see if I can get endorsed to teach middle school Language Arts even though my license is in ESL. I think there is a good chance they will endorse me which would be awesome and he also mentioned that they need a high school track coach for next year as well. 

  •  I have an interview next week at a school in Mason City. I would be an educational assistant for students k-8th with special emotional/behavioral needs. I am really hoping and praying that this would work out because I feel that I would absolutely love and do well at this school.

  • Tim and I are going on a little ROAD TRIP to Illinois this weekend for Spencer Anderson’s wedding. We get to see our good friends Katie and Dom! I LOVE road trips and I LOVE weddings, so I am really looking forward to having a great time!

Katie! I miss her and can't wait to see her and Dom

  • This week I ran with my new running buddy Teresa. I met her at church. She is awesome. She ran cross country and track throughout high school and college and I think we have a lot in common. Not to mention she has the cutest little baby boy ever, his name is Isaac and he is so chubby and smiley and cute :)  (I LOVE babies). We are planning on running together at least once a week this summer. I miss my cross country teammates so much so it is nice to have someone to run with here in Iowa to keep me company while Tim is working.

  • Tim and I made it to Bible study last night with Pastor Mark and his wife Cassie. We read John chapter 5. It was amazing. I learned so much and we are so blessed to be able to fellowship with such great people.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. Take some time this weekend to realize how blessed you are. 

"Letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace"- Romans 8:6

Also, here are some more reminders that you are loved and that even through hard times, you can know that everything will be ok.

"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love."-Romans 5:3-5

"I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
- John 16:33
