Early Christmas

Not for me.  Several hundred juniors and seniors will get netbooks today. They will have them to take home and use for the rest of the school year.  While I know that this will mean work and frustration at a later date, I choose to feel like Santa today.  They are excited and today I will help pass them out and they will be happy.  I am going to be happy right along with them.  For some it will not be that big of a deal.  For some it will be a HUGE deal.  That makes me happy. I’m going to silently pray over those laptops today – as physical, tangible, representations of the children that I may not know or have any clue what their life is like, I will pray for that God watches out for them.  It is going to be a very good day.
