Time with Starr

The past 2 weeks, Facing Jesus has been with Starr. Starr is a high school teacher who teaches many grades Spanish. A very creative person, she is--Starr is also an artist and author of great books about creativity. Here is where Facing Jesus spent the past 2 weeks:

There are seven clocks lining the back wall of my classroom showing the time in different parts of the Spanish-speaking world. I discreetly replaced the center clock with the face of Jesus and waited for the students to notice. I dodged their questions about the painting and listened to their responses. One student said, "His eyes look as though they are looking straight through me and into my soul." I never told the students who our mysterious visitor was or why he was here, but one thing is for certain: Everyone recognized him and felt his steady gaze.

  1. Love this one! It is nice to see him in the classroom again :) Thank you Starr for letting him be a part of the children's daily life for a bit.

  2. I love what this represents, too, is that we are on God's time no matter what time it is in the world - GOD'S time...!

    God bless you all!

  3. Thank you all for such great comments! There is going to another post from Starr's husband, Steffan who took it to HIS classroom today! You won't believe what he did! I'll post it soon!
