Finish Strong


We have all heard the phrase, run the race to win. When you see a well conditioned athlete run a race, often times you see them have a burst of speed in the final stretch and leaning into the tape to win the race. This is how we should plan to finish our school year… we don’t want to go into the last few days of school in cruise control, we want to finish strong. What are we teaching our students if they can just “pack their bags” in those final few days? We need to make sure we have activities that inspire and encourage our students to press through the finish line.

Don’t get me wrong, I know it has been a long road… but picture a marathon runner who has completed 26 miles of the journey and decides, I have gone far enough, I’m good with 26. They are so close to the finish…take advantage of those last days and continue to inspire and motivate your students to be their best and to press through to the finish!


Trust In the Lord


Proverbs 3: 5-6

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. It sounds so simple, just trust in the Lord, don’t lean on your own understanding… but so often, we “trust” in the things we see, the things we hear, the things we feel… When you are told that your position is being eliminated at work or that a family member has a terminal illness, it is easy to get caught up in worry and anxiousness. We start wondering what we are going to do, we start to scramble trying to figure out how things will work out, or how we can “help” fix things.

It is in these times that the Lord whispers in that still small voice… “just trust in me with ALL your heart.” It will not be easy, and there may be times when you will doubt and question whether God is really there for you, but rest assured… our God is faithful, He has a great plan for us, and as we rest in Him, He will bring you through each and every situation.

The Lord will always provide what we have need of, WHEN we need it. His timing is perfect, He is not early, He is not late, He is always on time. As we trust in Him and see Him provide and deliver time and time again, it will become easier to rest knowing that no matter how big the waves, no matter how dark the storm, no matter how loud the thunder, Jesus is there with us, holding us up in His loving hands, and He will direct our path. Be blessed and find rest today.

Dragon Eye Deviled Eggs



12 Hard boiled eggs

1/4 Cup Mayonnaise

2 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard

4 Tablespoons Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce

2 Habanero Peppers minced

1/4 cup Minced Onion

Salt & Pepper



Cut your hard boiled eggs in half, lengthwise and set the whites aside. Set yolks aside into a mixing bowl. Sauté the minced habanero and onions until browned, set enough aside to top each egg (about 3 teaspoons). Combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Sriracha, and remaining minced habanero and onions mixture with the egg yolks and mix thoroughly. Add salt and fresh cracked pepper. Fill your egg whites and sprinkle with paprika. Top each egg with a small spoon of the minced habanero and onion mixture. (If you like them spicier, you can add minced fresh habanero as a topping)  Serve and enjoy!
