humbled...

Okay, so do I sift through all these amazing books/boxes of curriculum sitting in front and next to me....or do I scrap it all and start simple and from scratch?????....

....feeling a bit overwhelmed....oh, but oh, so excited and continually humbled by the Lord's AWESOME grace!

...did I tell you, this is an answer to prayer, but not just an answer, something He walked me through...and when I went through steps of hopelessness and came back around to setting it at His feet and realizing He loves our boys even more then I could ever imagine, then I had hope again.

....and with this hope, I felt a stirring in my heart that made me want to jump out of my skin, to tell my hubby "YES, THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO DO, YES, YES, YES" ....but the Lord said,

"wait and be still...be quiet and watch what I shall do...be still (actually He really had to tell me to be quiet!)"

...so I did...and I came home to my precious family from a day at work and hubby says,
"so I've been thinking today, I think we should homeschool..."

...speechless HUMBLED does not even begin to describe what happened in my heart, my spirit at that moment...

...and it continues :)
33 Let the trees of the forest sing, 


   let them sing for joy before the LORD, 
   for he comes to judge the earth.


 34 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; 
   his love endures forever. 
35 Cry out, “Save us, God our Savior; 
   gather us and deliver us from the nations, 
that we may give thanks to your holy name, 
   and glory in y

our praise.”

1 Chronicles 16:33-35 (New International Version) 

...and so 2 years almost exactly to the day that we decided to place our boys back in school (after much prayer too-we had peace), the Lord says, bring 'em home :)


He is good ALWAYS...thank you for your prayers...I am humbled...

they are going to love the extra time in
their day to play, wrestle, and explore
God's beautiful world.

not confined to a hard desk listening to
"blah, blah, blah . . ."
