I haven’t been writing much later because I sprained (or jammed) my middle finger on my dominate hand. It’s healing fairly quickly but it has been a lot of pain!
Currently, I’m sitting in my room waiting for our storage building to arrive (Finally and Thankfully!). It will be nice to have a place to store all the extra clutter consuming our home, to be able to turn it into a normal house again.
Waiting on something to arrive often leaves much time to think and that’s what I’ve been doing today. I’ve been thinking about the past, present and the future.
I was looking at photos on one of my slideshows a few minutes ago, looking and noticing HOW much my children have grown, how much they have changed in the past 6 months. My baby girl has gone from a sweet cherub faced 1 yr old to a strong-willed, intellegent 2 yr old. My oldest daughter has gone from a whiny brat (for lack of a better word! LOL) to a loving, caring, artistic, sweet girl. My son has gone from a needy, unsure boy to a strong, take-charge, though still a little unsure, young man. My world is changing daily for the better and I could NOT ask for more.
This year we will begin our first year of truly structured homeschooling. We worked on this last year but not to the extent I have planned for them this year. Previous years we have ho-humed, flitted along, barely learning but enjoying being a family and allowing them to enjoy being children. This year our goals we are to learn to become structured, learn to balance our daily lives, repair our reading inadaquacies, work our way up to level in both reading and math, but enjoy ourselves along the way. I think we can do this (as the little train says!). I look forward to doing this, to enjoying this road we are traveling on and to loving my children and teaching them to love life and learning too. NOTHING is better than that and I could not ask for more. I’m thankful for these blessings God has given to me, thankful to Him for leading us to homeschooling and thankful for the impact this choice has made in my life and the lives of my beautiful children.
Now, time to get busy getting ready for school and for my soon-to-be-here storage building!
I am sitting here waiting.
Waiting to write, waiting for the words to come, and waiting for things to fall into place. I ask the Lord for guidance and I’m waiting for that, too. But isn’t that what life is all about?
I wait on the Lord to come, wait on Him to guide me home. In the meantime, I live the life He gave to me. It’s a somewhat rocky road I travel on. Many mistakes have come and gone and many more are ahead of me. I wait for those, too, but I know with God’s guidance, I can overcome anything.
I haven’t written anything in a while. I’ve been waiting for my mental block to clear, been waiting on God’s words to inspire me. I could feel God there but could not grasp what He was saying to me. So I patiently waited on His time, for Him to lead me in what to say. I think that time has finally come.
I feel happy, inspired, a bit overwhelmed, too. But I can handle it all, with God beside me, walking me through. Waiting is just a small part of life. The biggest part is yet to come.
