Proud of my Ben and Sarah

Yesterday was quite eventful in the lives of Ben and Sarah.

Ben was hired by a Christian accountant who runs his own business. He saw that Ben's personality and test results were unique for bean counters, and his youth puts him at an advantage in marketing via technology. I am so thankful to God for putting him on a career path he's pursuing. His strenghs are his outgoing personality and his sales skills. He's been making great money selling Ravens jerseys lately.

Sarah finally got her Praxis scores back. The Praxis is a state test as a qualifying mark for teachers-to-be. She scored well above the national averages in reading, writing, AND math. She could hardly believe the highest of those scores was in algebra. "I can just SEE God in this, Mom! I mean, you're talking to someone who cried every night over algebra homework! Did you ever think I'd get higher in math than in reading? And I bet you're proud that I did so well in grammar, too, huh?"

I told Joel to see if her head was swelling as large as the loaf of bread we had rising nearby. He said her head was bigger. But I was just teasing. I am very proud of her.

It's time to celebrate the goodness of God once again!
