A woman walked into a bank
to open a new account. As she sat across the desk from the banker, she helped
herself to one of his business cards. Looking at the card, she thought to
herself that she had gone to high school with a boy by the same name, but
quickly dismissed the possibility that he could be the same guy.
The banker, wrinkled and
balding, looked much too old to have been in her high school class. Still, he
bore a strong resemblance, and the name was the same. She wondered if perhaps
he was the father of the boy she remembered.
your son attend high school locally?" she inquired. "No, but I did.
Valley High, class of '63." "Really?" she questioned. But I was
at Valley High in 1963!" "You were? I thought you looked familiar.
What subject did you teach?"
It’s funny how we tend to
look at ourselves so much less realistically than we look at others. If she
took a good look at the face in the mirror, she'd see it was as old as the face
sitting across the desk. I encourage each of us to take a good look at our
hearts this week and answer this question…Is it as sinful as all the others
you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to
the plank in your own eye?

so we’ll share with everyone.
“I work in the Central Office for Tulia ISD. Recently

expressed just what we all need at this time. ‘We are saying EXTRA prayers for
you during this school year.’ Thank you for the kind gesture and prayers.”
