Deuteronomy 28:2 (King James Version)

"And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God." This is my homeschooling blog. Some days my cup runnteh over with the joys of homeschoolong, some days it's spilling what can only be be described as thinly veiled insanity. Either way, it runneth over...

Faith Steps...

Hosted here this week.

"Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."
~Martin Luther King Jr.

Being a visual learner, stepping out in faith has always been a struggle for me. Even though I know in my heart that God has always provided everything I need, my head gets scared very easy when I can't "see" where everything is going.

Homeschooling is like this for me. I have three "wild cards" so to speak. I trust that they are learning and that God is helping me in all the areas I lack. I can see progress as we go, but not being able to "see" the finished product is a bit frightening.

Questions like "what if I forget something?"or "what if they forget everything I teach them?" plague me at times. Odds are, I probably will forget something, but it will be OK. I've forgotten things I learned in all hope lost? No, I go look up what I need to know.

Its all going to work out because I do trust God. I step out of my fear into my faith in him. He holds my hand as I climb that staircase and I'm looking forward to seeing just what is at the top.

Manic Monday 01/26/09

~What gives you hope?
*My faith. If there were no knowledge of the one true God who loves me enough to pay the price for all my sins, I don't know how I would ever make it.

~How often do you get your haircut? Describe your worst haircut.
*Not very often. My worst haircuts are when a person won't listen to me about my wacky curls and cuts all my bangs off..I usually don't even get them cut for that very reason...

~What's your most treasured piece of jewelry? Why?
* My wedding rings. Because Jeff gave them to me and they remind me how much he loves me.

homeschooling in TX...

Just when you think your life can't get any closer to a stereotype, you look out your kitchen window and see how wrong you are. I'm giving them points for the safety equipment but I may deduct a few for toting the school desk outside. On second thought, it does show problem solving skills...I guess they can keep the points. :0)
