Sickness and accidents have been in abundance lately. My nephew was in a serious car accident two Fridays ago, and is lucky to have survived. Last night, we received news our good friend's son was involved in a dirt bike accident that crushed part of his skull. I've not been to the hospital to visit either family since I've been fighting a sinus infection for a week.
All these circumstances are just reminders to keep the walls up ~ to be serious about standing in faith against the enemy who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. He can never win.
We have chosen not to allow these things to hinder us from starting school. Our official first day was Monday, August 17, and since we finished day 2 today, we have 178 days of school left for dd17's Junior year.
It's hard to believe that the 09-10 term is my 16th school year of home educating! It's passed so quickly when looking back. I'm realizing once again to enjoy every day, to treasure the moments with each of my loved ones, and to keep my focus on what God says is important.
Only an education with Him at the core will bring the correct application of academics to one's life.
I'm grateful to have my daughter at home with me, and for the times I get to spend with my daughter who is grown up and no longer lives at home.
Lord, help me keep my focus this school year, and help me to keep You first in all the parts of our school day. I pray You will reveal the next step for my daughters, and show us, as their parents, the best way to guide and assist them on this wonderful journey to live well thought out and purposeful lives, in the name of Your Holy Son Jesus.
