One month of homeschooling under our belt and I think we should celebrate! (Should I finish that sentence with, "...but I'm too tired!"?)
Monday this week was definitely the low point. I guess the honeymoon stage had worn off...and it was Monday morning after a big weekend. Thank God, a friend called at just the right time and I admitted that we were having a bad, sad day! She was so kind and didn't offer annoying advice or platitudes, but simply asked if she could pray right then, over the phone. It changed everything! Things definitely improved after that. I love that He cares and sent someone to display that love at just the right time.
The high point was when the Principal came and taught Math:
And my little warrior tackled his math as a little warrior should--fully armed and ready for battle:
As I evaluate everything, I'm in awe of the good fruit that I can already see from this venture. It is producing in my kids all I had hoped for and more than I'd dreamed of and I'm having more fun than I'd thought I would!
I read a verse this morning that kind of sums up how I feel about it. King David had asked God if he should go and fight the Philistines and God told him that he should. Sure enough, the Philistines are defeated and David exclaims, "God did it! He used me to burst through my enemies like a raging flood!" I love how David asks for direction, God guides, David obeys, and God comes through for him. David's response is awe-filled worship!
Keep seeking and obeying--He'll come through for you! I believe it gives Him great joy.
