And she says beautiful Jesus make me look like you *

I was standing at the doorway of my classroom when a line of students walked by. They were all girded up in their bus safety harnesses and headed for home. One little girl stopped, as I was waving to them, and said to me, "You look like Jesus." I leaned down to look in her precious little eyes and told her, "I'm working on it." Today a little boy stood poised at the water fountain watching me walk down the hall. He is 4 or 5 with a long braid of hair down his back and has been my friend ever since I heard that a substitute told him he looked like a girl.So Alfonzo is my friend now and stood there beaming, lifting up his necklace to show was a fish with Jesus' name engraved on it. I got so excited and was able to tell my friend Alfonzo about how much I love this man Jesus. This moment in time made me realize that I am in fact, exactly where I need to be and maybe a bit less important ,exactly where I want to be. Thank you to the little precious hearts who walk the halls of a school, in the middle of a neighborhood, where some would fear to tread. Thank you for keeping me on track. I am not there, but I seek to look like my savior.
