Today was a day unlike many (or any). Somehow, the Lord in His magnificence, allowed us to have three separate visits with friends in one day! Now, let me add… I do not recommend this kind of day to any mother because it can be stressful and way too busy for everyone involved. And in all honesty, as for the children and me, this type of full schedule is certainly not only NOT the norm… but it is one I usually shy away from (and in a hurry!) 😛 All I had on the agenda was my standing weekly visit with my best friend and her children. But as God would have it, two other invitations popped up! Continue reading “Where To Go and When To Chill”
Watching these kindergartners learn to read is the most precious, priceless thing! It takes patience. It takes focused attention. It takes time. But Moms, there’s truly such a reward in the process! <3
Therefore, I challenge you, if you have pre-k age littles, why not homeschool? Just pray about it. Please, for you as well as for them, take the plunge! You will be pressed, pruned, tested & tried for sure. But what a better way to learn how to serve, lay down your life, give of yourself like never before & allow the Lord the grow you. It’s a selfless sacrifice, I tell you. And I, personally, have had to suffer in my flesh A LOT in order to yield my desires to God’s. But I know I’m all the better for it. 😀
Consequently, I’m writing this particular blog just to see if you will search out if this way of life is one for you. Continue reading “Homeschool Beginnings”
I pray we rest in Jesus’ arms letting Him love on us just like this picture portrays. Too many women are stressed, exhausted & fearful that if they stop performing, they’re failing God or their spouses/children or parents or friends or the church… or all of the above! So, as I settle in for the night reflecting on these things, I desire nothing more than to be still in Jesus’ presence. And as that happens, I silently pray for every Daughter of the King who needs to know how cherished they are because of who they were made to be opposed to what they do & how well they do it.
In it with you. <3
For all of you out there who can relate (wherever it may apply in your life)…”This refining & sanctification process of mother is not always easy, but God has shown me that He will bring me further faster home with my children than at a million events/conferences, etc that I could ever attend. Real life is here in my home. He is perfecting me to become more & more like His Son Jesus. So, for that I am praising Him- even in the tantrums, “hoe hums” & “isn’t there more?” days. Be blessed! <3
