Spiritual Gifts

In Sunday school, our class is on a series about spiritual gifts. I'm excited. I've thought about spiritual gifts, read them in the Bible without really understanding them, but I have not really tried to figure mine out.

I did talk to my husband a while back about his opinions of what my gifts to be. I got the old "iono," and my enthusiasm for the whole thing faded.

Now we're working through a book called S.H.A.P.E. that outlines how to discover and develop them. So far, I've realized that the reason I'm so confused with my role in God's plan is that I haven't been searching hard enough for my role. I don't serve enough in the church so I haven't come across the opportunities that develop and strengthen and prepare me for the ministry.

Update 2: A Time to Fight

That psychologist has not called. I am not surprised nor angered by this. It's only what I expected of her and this school district. I'll find other avenues to get what I need for my son.

Whatever happened to professional courtesy? Even if you find the concept of morality outdated, everyone should be concerned about integrity. I hope she doesn't think I will accept her excuses when they come (they always do). Trust has been revoked.

However, I'm moving on.

Update: A Time to Fight

At my son's IEP meeting, I talked with his team about removing "intellectually disabled" off his IEP. I got the old run around about how he could lose services elsewhere (like from SSI-- which is none of their business). I asked if it would affect his services in this current school district. They told me no.

So I asked them to remove it. The psychologist said she would call-- a week ago. Looks like that was for nothing. I guess I'll get around to asking the teacher what's up with that psychologist.

Tired doesn't even begin to describe my state of mind.
