Friday, as the entire school prepared to leave for Christmas break,one of my students pulled an envelope from her backpack.
She rushed to my computer desk and thrust it towards me.
"I forgot to give you this," she said.
The envelope held a Christmas card from her family.
Inside, beautifully penned, was the following prayer:
"May our dear Lord be with you and your family as we celebrate the birth of Jesus,
the Savior of the world.
Usher you into the new year in victory,
grant you peace and grace for the year ahead.
