I started teaching an after-school violin program at Pocomoke Middle School on April the 15th. Wow! I can hardly believe it. I auditioned for the job with a program called "Twinkle in Ten" in late August. I interviewed at the school in early February. They said IF they decided to use me to teach the program I would start sometime in mid April. Well, days went by and by the end of March I thought "Oh well, I guess that door didn't open". The last week in March I had 2-3 different people ask me about the job which was kind of funny to me as Nobody had mentioned it for about a month. Then I got a call from the school that week, asking if I was still interested and before I knew it all the fliers were sent out and everything was ready for the first class on April 15th.
I was a little nervous, not knowing how many or how interested these children would be. Praise God! They have been a great group to work with so far.
I know the Lord opened this door for me as I don't have a college diploma, I don't play in a famous orchestra, I am not one of the best, I'm not 'qualified' ... I have no real, clear, reason for my being here except that He opened this door. Many times over the past 3 lessons I think "what am I doing here? Lord, what should we do next?" He always answers and the children are doing well!
Thank you Lord for this opportunity to shine Your light!
