Any teacher whose heart is in the right place is moved by the sight of his students’ earnest effort on final exams.

Finals are SO final!

The word final means so much: the end, it’s over, nevermore, last chance, make-or-break.

So my darling ninth graders touched my heart earlier this week as I regarded them strive.  Their tense countenances, their quiet resolve, their determined effort: I-their-teacher was moved!

I was moved to pray for God to bless their effort.  So as they tested, I prayed.  And as I prayed, they tested.  And in the end, God was faithful to meet our needs!  Their final results were awesome.

Surprised?

Of course not!
