Yesterday, my student who I tutor and I went shopping for plants!

I want to emphasize to my pupil and all of my students the importance of maximizing their full potential.

These are the flowers that he picked out!

Hibiscus Mandarin for ♪♫Hip Hop♫♪

He picked the hibiscus because they’re barely growing, so they have yet to bloom and blossom, plus their petals will look beautiful in hair!

As both an educator (college professor, religious education teacher, private tutor) and a student (to finish my doctoral degree this year and had a call to confirm my dissertation chair this week ~ to defend and become DOCTOR this ☼summer☼ then walk this fall) who can empathize with my own students, this ♣spring♣ semester thus far already has made waves!

P is for …

Pupils (formal term for students) * Pursuit * Progress –> Prosper/Prosperity

This RGV press release 📰 about my summer🌅 speech class in South Texas🌴 reminds me of the skills that my students practiced that still are required to succeed in my own PhD📜!

As another year approaches, I can’t just sit back, wait and wonder: will this be my year? First of all, I have faith🙏 that GOD☝️ determines the fate. I can do what is within my control, and like my students, I can strive to produce high-quality work! Struggle and sacrifice will be worth the price!

Almost exactly two years ago when I attended 🎆New Year’s🎇 Mass💒, our Deacon spoke🎤 of the difference between wishful💭 and resolved👊 thinking. While I can wish all I want to graduate🎓, I must move forward once I resolve to take whatever steps👣 necessary to make progress!

Thirsty Thursday: Labor of LOVE for the LORD

Happy Belated Labor Day!

Today’s Thirsty Thursday segment refers to doing GOD’s work, not Man’s. 

Glorify GOD’s grace with our gifts. 

My Church buddy, Joe, reminded me that through our ministry, we’re mainly here to serve GOD above all else ~ giving him our BEST. 

Thanks to Joe, Evie and I’ve embarked on team teaching Religious Education! 

Our endeavor can help prepare us for the Catholic school, but either way, we’ll be reaping our rewards to head closer to Heaven.
