UnknownIn my current job I get to help students with math almost every day … and that makes me happy … honest!

I am not a math expert, or teacher. I don’t always know what to do, nor do I always get the right answer.

My regular message to students is that my goal is not to make them love math, but to not hate it anymore.

I simply want student to love the challenge of the problem … because I know that there is and answer to find, and it will all make sense once the problem is solved.

Really it is not a bad life lesson!

So that is my day job … and then hubby and I went to look at houses and townhouses for sale the other day.

We are about to list our house for sale, and to downsize into one that is more affordable and less time (and money) to spend on maintenance.

Thankfully we have a good amount of equity in our home, sadly, even a townhouse is more than half a million dollars in our area.

We decided to take in a few open houses yesterday, just to get an idea of what is available in our price range.

A house can look good online, but to walk through and smell bad smells, and see dirt marks all over the walls … depressing. And that is what yesterday was for me … depressing.

Then I awoke this morning to a beautiful blue sky and fresh snow all over everything, what a lovely start to the day.

I opened my computer and saw the image (above), and thought about the students who I desire to birth a love for the challenge of the problem.

I often tell people that if one can learn to love the challenge of a math problem, they have a good foundation for facing all of life’s problems, for we can look at all of life’s problem as a challenge to work to solve.

And so, today I am looking at our near future house hunt as a challenge to be solved … because I know that there is an answer/house to find, and it will all make sense once we are looking back.

“Now we see things imperfectly,
like puzzling reflections in a mirror,
(or algebra in a textbook)
but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.
All that I know now is partial and incomplete,
but then I will know everything completely,
just as God now knows me completely.”
1 Corinthians 13:12
