“God is in His Heaven…”

Standard

Bang! The car door slammed behind me. Turning, my feet stepped from the back parking lot into  the alleyway beside church; I headed toward the front door. The sun shone brightly on my face, warming it.  A smile, the kind with little upturned ends, spread across my face. It feels so good. The breeze, an early-spring kind of warm, played with my wavy, brown hair and tickled my skin.  It feels so good.  

Chirp! Chirp!  Could that be a robin?  Where is it? I asked myself, looking up, down, left, and right.  Where is it?  My little feathered friend was shy and chose to remain out of sight.  

I need to hurry.  I”ll be late. I willed my feet to hurry along.  Then, music and joy and God’s people praising Him.  How great to be alive!  

I ran up the concrete stairs, reached out my hand, grasped the door knob, pulled it open, and entered.  “God is in his heaven, and all is right with the world,”  I quoted to myself.

I think of myself as a Renaissance woman with a variety of passions. If you visited me, you might find me hanging out with my husband and children. Our Golden Retriever would be lovingly near. I am a Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist at an elementary school where I provide professional development and coaching to teachers. Formerly, I was a Reading Recovery teacher, an interventionist, and a middle and elementary classroom teacher. Getting up in the morning is not hard; I still love making a difference in the lives of children and teachers.

  1. I loved building my own images from your words. The sun and birds chirping is about all I need to erase some of my worries, too. Entering into a church filled with music would make me even happier. The quote at the end is perfect! Thanks for sharing.

  2. My daughter and I were celebrating that we saw a robin near our home yesterday. I enjoyed how you used italics when you were documenting your thoughts as you took in the Springtime sounds.

    • Isn’t that the BEST-seeing the first robin of spring? Our neighbor says that here in Wisconsin, the robin has to have snow on his tail 3 times before spring can really be here. I “think” we have accomplished that…I only heard the robins. I sighted one yesterday! Yea!
