Did you know that all that you are and all that you do
is a witness to the God that is living in you? Your
light is so bright your inspiration so real that it’s
clear to all around you both far and so near… you
shine, you can’t help it!
Did you know that your students, yes Your boys and
girls are infected, reflective of God’s Holy Word? You
live it you breathe it you give so generously, how
could they not know that their purpose is He… you
teach it daily!
Did you know you not only teach phonics and numbers,
coloring and reading and friendship and wonder? Yes
it’s true you teach these but your mission is bigger
the foundation you set is a much bigger vision… and
the world needs and thanks you.
Did you know on those days when you were weary and
tired, you didn’t want to get out of bed, you didn’t
want to be bothered. You wanted to stay warm, with
your man in your bed, but you got up, got dressed and
you marched on ahead… to help create destinies.
Did you know these are your children, believe me it’s
true, they may not come out of the body that’s
physically you. They come to you from God because He
always knew, He could trust you with them and I trust
you too. I thank Him and Praise Him for all of His
Wisdom… to use you.
Did you know that you are a mother, a teacher and
friend, a role model, a nurse, a first crush again and
again? A comic, a disciplinarian, a shoulder to cry on,
a cheerleader, book reader the list never ends… and
they can’t get Jen Gleason from anyone else.
We don’t know how they will grow or the paths that
they will choose, a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a
mini-you. A writer, a poet, a ceo or a pastor their
future started bright for them you filled them with
laughter and wisdom… I wish you could teach the
WHAT YOU DO IS SO IMPORTANT JEN, DON’T EVER DOUBT
THAT… THANK YOU, TRULY, THANK YOU.
