prayers, please for
1. my max. his asthma is "extremely exacerbated" and he is being "treated aggressively." the one med they put him on makes him shake for a bit but his coughing subsides. even with my rx plan i paid over $180 in medicine co-pays today.
2. my molly - twisted her knee coming out of church yesterday and while she can put pressure on it to walk, cannot negotiate stairs. she has an appt. with the ortho today at 4:00.
3. me. it's always about me innit? anyway, my religious ed students are VERRRRY SASSY this year and i thought the three sassiest gals could teach tonight, but i am a taker-backer and will teach class myself because (a) i think it will turn into a mock mrs. d session and i don't have the fortitude for that and (b) it will be a mock the three sassy girls session and that is not what i am all about.
instead? we are doing a lesson in advent: one is making room - to make room for something new, you need to get rid of other things (man, almost like a flylady moment, eh?) so i am going to have them create an advent "arrow prayer" for them to say frequently during the coming weeks, thereby reminding themselves to keep open a special place for Jesus. also, a Scripture study that provide many guides for following the "right path" so we will go over them and reflect.
also, we are teaming up with two second-grade classes (they receive the sacraments of reconciliation and first holy communion this year) as prayer partners. i will spend tonight pairing up my young adults with their second grade counterparts, have them introduce themselves by way of Christmas cards with little notecards on the inside that say *you're a blessing* and we are going to make really cool snowflakes to decorate our room with out of a cool snowflake template i found here.
