Yesterday morning I was having a little trouble with the Macbook Air Pro issued to me by the school. I couldn’t log into the system and kept getting an error message. Normally I seek out the librarian because she is our school’s teach wiz. I went into the library and saw a former student of mine. He is one of the Yazidi refugees I had the privilege of teaching in the evenings at the community college.
He now works for computing services for the school district in my city. He came to my classroom and within two minutes he had the problem fixed though I am not sure how.
Each time I see him come to my school to work on something it is a blessing to know he has experienced success in life. After he finished, he spoke briefly to my two Yazidi students in their language. I am not sure what he said, but the moms were smiling at me.
Considering all my Yazidi friends experienced in their lives in Iraq, seeing them experience good things here makes what I do so worthwhile. Being a small part of them building their new lives here is a great blessing. It is moments like yesterday that cause me to be grateful God led me to this work and ministry.
What are you grateful for today?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

So grateful for all the small, which are very big blessings like yours was, Matt! It makes the difference in our lives.
Small blessings can turn a day around for us 🙂
Amen to that!
I am grateful I discovered the water leak inside a wall before it did major damage.
Yikes. Was it in your home?
Yes. We recently had a water softener installed, and it’s leaking where they hooked in to the main water line.
So they fixed the problem free of charge?
Yes. The plumber who installed the system finally made it out this evening.
Oh, it is so nice when someone helps with tech issues! I definitely relate. I can navigate a minimum of things on my laptop and smartphone but if something goes wrong, I am quickly a frazzled mess. 🙂 Thankful for many things, but, most of all, for a God who is always there for us.
God loves you little sister.
I am like you. Many things I can figure out but when there is a teach problem I am thankful for those who can help 🙂

Grateful for the ease of technology, when it works, but also very thankful that some people still use telephones and one can ask for other help and advice from a real human being. Like you, always grateful for the opportunities to serve and to see the fruit of our labours.
I am thankful for people who know more about tech than I do 🤗
me too – that’s a lot of people in my case! 😀
I am grateful to be your sister in Christ and that you make me smile with your stories and that God is using you to teach and make the students welcome 🙂
