At church I work in the Young Women's program. It's very intimidating to me. I've served in the children's program [for many, many years (before I had children) but children are more forgiving if you don't know what you're doing]. I've served in the women's program (I am a woman, I could relate). I have not been in the Young Women's program since I was a young woman. That's what's intimidating.
Last night I had to give a lesson on virtue, our theme for this year. This lesson had me totally freaking out. I don't know why I let these things stress me out like they do. It happens every time I have to teach or talk in front of people. Even though I did a ton of research prior to writing my lesson, I sat down and worked on my lesson on Monday night from 9:00 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. and then throughout the day on Tuesday. Oh, and did I mention it was a 5-10 minute lesson? Yes. Stress. That's what happens to me. And did I mention that I usually get so nervous that I speak a mile a minute and no one can understand me? I don't think that happened last night. I'm trying to get better at that. (Deep breaths. Deep breaths.)
Anyway, to go along with my lesson, I made a virtue bunting to hang up for display. At some point in the near future, it may be on our bulletin board at church. It wasn't the best sewing job, so I may not even admit that I made it. lol. However, I used what I had, so it's headed for flickr.
Thoughts for the day:
1- Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
2- ...let virtue garnish thy thoughts unceasingly...
