Did Noah Fish?

Jan 08, 2017

Sunday school teacher asked, ‘Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark?’ ‘No,’ replied Johnny. ‘How could he, with just two worms.’


On Sunday mornings, my big brother used to go to Sunday School.  On Sunday afternoons we would drive past the Church on our way to visit our Grandparents and he would point out the window and tell me “That’s my Sunday School!” I would look with appropriate respect of an admiring little sister…. and then the day came when I was old enough to attend.  That afternoon, I beat him to it; “That’s MY Sunday School!” I exclaimed with pride as we drove past the church.

People who know me often complain that I never stop being a teacher.  That is because I’ve been practicing all my life.  From as early as I can remember teaching is the only job I ever wanted.  As a little girl, it didn’t matter what I managed to get hold of: I taught it.  I’d organise pencils or playing cards into classes and hold assembly.  My most used toy was a blackboard.  Books doubled as desks for my dolls and teddies.  All I ever did was practice for my future.

Knowing what you want to be when you grow up gives you a sense of purpose and a direction to head towards.  When I came of age to leave school, my parents didn’t think teaching was a good idea so I took the first job available as a Bank Clerk.

However, I never completely gave up the dream and in a very round-about sort of way I made my dream come true.  There were many obstacles along the journey but having a goal gave me a determination and the drive to accomplish it.

I love working with children.  It’s a true privilege to be able to share a part of their life and help them towards achieving their dreams.
