He does...

I had a precious conversation with a friend today.  We spoke of our little ones and struggles and joys in homeschooling.  What I was able to share in our conversation was God's goodness (always!) in our homeschooling journey, and more pointedly, my journey with Him.
Our boys are home.
Our boys are home because He said yes.
Our boys are home because He extends grace, multiple times.
Our boys are home because He cares more for them than I could even imagine.
My heart swells to the brim for these sweet ones He has entrusted to our care and it doesn't even come close to the love He feels for them.
And our boys are home because He loves me more than I could imagine and refines with a love and an unquenchable fire.
I am humbled at our days.  I can't really even put it into words the amazing changes the Lord has done and is doing in our home, our hearts, our family life.  I am not resting in my own strength.  I am not trying to prove something.  I am at His feet knowing I am not equipped to do this job, this role of mother, wife, friend, daughter...but, I know He will through me.  I know He can, and I am humbled and in awe at what He does!
He speaks to me in the moments, His love present...and He renews, strengthens, equips and leads on...

His love endures...He is amazing!

In your unfailing love you will lead 

   the people you have redeemed. 
In your strength you will guide them 
   to your holy dwelling. (Exodus 15:13)



Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4)

following Him in the everyday...
