This past autumn  was a difficult season for me. Especially with work. There were a lot of changes happening, and to make a long story short, I found myself in a position that was extremely difficult. I was working long hours, doing extra things, burning myself out, AND not receiving any appreciation or even "thank yous" for it all. Needless to say, I was stressed...
One evening in November, after I had finished a particularly strenuous day, I just felt done. I knew that I had a choice: I could choose anger and sin and probably do somethingthat I would end up regretting, orI could choose God, and His love and His strength.
So I sat in my empty, dark classroom and cried and prayed.
And I felt a nudge.
A nudge to create.
I ran across the street to Lotte Mart and grabbed some supplies.
And the Magic Tree was born:
The Magic Tree is now the focal point in my classroom
and he has a very lively personality.
He's always changing with the seasons and holidays
and my students just love him.
