It's like a symphony
Just keep listening
And pretty soon you'll start
To figure out your part
Everyone plays a piece
And there are melodies
In each one of us
Oohhh it's glorious
(lyrics from the song- Glorious) Family Day 2016
Isn’t it cool how some of them are the violins, others the piccolo, and still others the much needed double bass?? God truly had a plan when He created each one of them! I love how together our school means so much more than each of us independently. These precious students are learning what their part is and how together as a Trinity family our impact is even greater. It is a long learning process. Aren’t we all still learning exactly what role we play in God’s plan for our lives? And isn’t it neat that sometimes our roles changes because God has a different plan for us!
Sometimes these students get to shine and be the “star” of something – singing, soccer, academics, etc. Other times, they are observers and encouragers. They still shine, but in a quieter background way. God uses all of their personalities – all their strengths – all their differences to create the most beautiful masterpiece.
What a blessing to watch these students pursue their melodies, learn to blend in harmony, and every once in a while, be silent and listen to the music around them. How amazing to watch them grow and mature. It makes my heart so happy to hear their sweet voices lifted in song especially when they are praising the One who created them so wonderfully. I am often humbled by their insight and their talents.
Parents, be encouraged. You too are blessed with the most incredible children. They each play a beautiful piece here at Trinity School of Texas and also in your homes and families. What a sobering thought to realize we have as adults to sometimes get to “direct” them in a small way. What an awesome responsibility.
. 1 Corinthians 12:17-20
If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
I may have the title of teacher, but these roles are reversed daily. My students teach me. Their uniqueness and diversity inspire me. Their love for one another reminds me of how their heavenly Father loves them. I could not be more thankful to teach these glorious children.
