TAPPS 1A State Champs!

A HUGE congratulations to  the Regents TAPPS Speech and Academics team, who won first place at the 1A State Championship. The competition took place in Waco on April 7 and 8. This was a big win for the whole team, who worked hard to prepare, competed as a team, and conducted themselves with grace and class. Great job, students!

On Continuing: “Day after day I plod”

“Weary in Well-Doing”

by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)

 I would have gone; God bade me stay:

I would have worked; God bade me rest.

He broke my will from day to day,

He read my yearnings unexpressed

And said them nay.

 Now I would stay; God bids me go:

Now I would rest; God bids me work.

He breaks my heart tossed to and fro,

My soul is wrung with doubts that lurk

And vex it so.

I go, Lord, where Thou sendest me;

Day after day I plod and moil:

But, Christ my God, when will it be

That I may let alone my toil

And rest with Thee?
