Generosity with ☝️GOD’s🙏 💝gifts🎁

Time * Talent * Treasure

  • Volunteering our time⏰ and treasure to serving our Church💒 (mine is through ministry and teaching ~ photos below are of the Oblate Missions River Rocks that I brought back for my students)

  • Donating our treasure (i.e., money💸) through tithing💰

The Key to Happiness:

*STEWARDSHIP*

We can never give enough, so let’s start with gratitude and go on with a generous attitude!

Teacher Appreciation

🎓Teacher📚 🍎Appreciation🍏 💝Gifts💅 from Delightful💍 Dani👰

 Live for the sake of worship to serve those in need, rather than for the world to serve our own greed!

So far, our first two signs of Dynamic Catholicism have been:

  1. Prayer
  2. Study

Last but not least, we’ll explore the sign of:
*Evangelism*

 🔔Ring in spring🌾

  When I visited San Antone for school last month, I picked out pasalubong

along with tees for yours truly! Since I’ve resumed my Church duties and returned to work from bed rest,

I might as well recover from my cold by color-coordinating in pairing these tops with these scarves!

We can call these match-ups a 🍀Spring Fling👌!

🎼We are the 🏆Champions, my friends🎸 ~ Queen👑

Our Religious Ed class won the 🍜Souper🍲 🏈Bowl🏉!

Since my R.E. students and my mom contributed the most non-perishable food items to our 🍞Loaves and Fishes🐟 food drive, we won a pizza🍕 party!

As we were about to cover the Last Supper🍷 in last night’s 📖class, we shared our meal. I couldn’t have been more blessed🙏 to have helpful students who offered to serve each other.

Therefore, they deserved to earn 📜awards, hence the ceremony👏 that we had during our 🍛dinner.

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

ITV

Teaching in the Future: I conference call my high school dual credit students into my college classroom! Technology rules!

G if for …

Giselle

Giselle my Superstar Student rocks in her latest speech that advances her to state!

On our first day of Religious Education, my Church Bestie, Evie, suggested that we wear Bible-inspired shirts.

Religious Tees for Church Classes

Since then, I’ve been sporting a different one ever week (with the exception of last night when I featured George Strait with his ♥LOVE♥ is Everything shirt in both my speech and our RE class ~ I pointed out his nervousness before his final concert to my Public Speaking students then played ♪I Saw GOD Today♫ at Church).

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.
