At the end of the school year, I was having people sign my yearbook and asked my English teacher to sign it too. After he finished, I took my book and ran to the bus. I don't normally look at what people have written in my yearbook right after they have written it, but this time I was real curious.
I opened it up and read. The words my English teacher wrote really caught me off guard: "I've been challenged by your very real walk with Jesus and the way He drives you to love people. You and God's presence in you make a difference here. I am honored to know you!"
I had prayed a week earlier (before the yearbook signing) that others could see Christ in me. In my teacher's response, I got my answer.
