Lesson Learned…….

In the last few years homeschooling…..

I have learned about PATIENCE.

HOLDING MY TONGUE.

AND

TIME MANAGEMENT…

Among OTHER things.

Mostly …I have learned that SOMETIMES when you are homeschooling..

LIFE HAPPENS.

Its a different world from the way other people live.

If my kids had been in public school over the last month…

I would have been able to take them to school,

drop them off,

then

Go home and pack, or pay bills, clean house,do laundry,deal with family illness issues, etc.

But Instead…..over the last month …

We have made this journey TOGETHER.

And BOY have I learned alot!!!

I have learned to GROW MY PATIENCE.

I have learned to HOLD MY TONGUE.

I have put THIS verse into practice:

19My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. 21Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. James 1:19-20

Not that I was ANGRY…but It WAS frustrating TRYING to pack and move or deal with “illness issues”…..

while the kids were there.

BUT…

I learned.

I TRULY learned NOT to “snap” at them….instead, taking the time to LISTEN to them…

as opposed to…..

just HEARING them, and them sending them “out of dodge”.

(Which we all KNOW is easier!!!!)

I have actually learned to STOP and HOLD MY TONGUE.

Even when I wanted to just “snap” at them …and have them go on their way.

(I know…It sounds YUCKY….But it is REAL.)

I have truly learned to “Let life happen”

because … IT DOES.

I have learned to appreciate the fact that SOMETIMES…

“LIFE-work” is MORE valuable than “BOOK-work”.

And

LIFE LESSONS are the FRUIT of Gods patience.

Maybe …

just maybe….

He has been PATIENT.

Waiting on ME.

SLOW , STUBBORN ME….

to learn THESE lessons.

Maybe …now that we’ve got that down…

we can move on.

I feel a peace in my heart….Like I was GRANTED some sort of key to my life.

A key that allows me to “LIVE INSIDE” my life….

fully saturated by the LOVE that I am BLESSED with.

A key that lets me “JUMP IN” much quicker…..

it lets me be MORE spontaneous.

Doing something….RIGHT NOW.

Instead of making the “I’ll plan for that and do it LATER” promise.

(Which for me…is more like the “That would be great BUT…I’ll NEVER get back to that” NON-promise.)

Which is like being given TIME.

And who doesn't want just a little more  TIME?????

………………………………………………………………………………………………….When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Eccl 7:14

Here is the FRUIT of our SPONTANIOUS GAME NIGHT…..

for god has given us children

to teach us everything we already

thought we knew

For taking time, slowing down

just living in the moment spontanously letting all days
shape themselves all in god's will
seems natural way of life god
intended for all his children

giving thanks for journey of nourishment , care , joy and peace
and service to humanity
hugs

mama, it won't be long until our babies have babies of their own and we'll wonder 'where did that time go?' because it flashes by in an instant!

blessings that you grabbed a crazychaoticmoment (moving/re-starting the homeschool routine/etc) and turned it into a family game night (those memories will last them a lifetime!!!!)

much love, you guys (your fam) is very inspiring.
