Michael Jordan’s Jersey Number.

October 5, 2007

Today in class, I was trying to remind the students of a scene we watched yesterday in the film, The Quiz Show. Basically, it’s a scene where Charles Van Doren is eating chocolate cake with his dad. My brain must have had a temporary (hopefully, just temporary) glitch or something, because instead of saying, “Remember that scene when they’re eating chocolate cake,” I said, “Remember that scene with the chocolate-eating cake”. They were taking notes, so most of them didn’t see me look up, mentally review what I just said, & quietly laugh to/at myself.

But one student did. He gave me this, “Did you just say what I think you said?” look & continued taking notes, silently chuckling.

Chocolate-eating cake . . . sounds like a birthday horror movie . . .

But thank you everyone for all the birthday greetings yesterday!

At school, each of my four periods surprised me & brought in baked goods. Some were even homemade (yum!). It was a little unnerving hearing, “Happy birthday dear Miss Han” for the first time though . . . *shudder* – haha. The original teacher somehow secretly told them last week that my birthday would be coming up.

I think they just wanted less homework . . . even though I didn’t plan to give them homework anyway . . .


Yesterday, I spent some time reflecting on what my 22nd year of life had been like. It’d been a year of many changes in life &, as a result, much inner struggle, too. But as each year passes, & in spite of anything & everything, this refrain puts down deeper roots in my heart: “Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.”

Truly, great is His faithfulness.
