Celebrate the Everyday


Why Celebrate the Everyday? I always start my day by repeating to myself Psalm 118:24- "This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it." It's a reminder that even in the midst of the mundane and on the hardest of days, there is always something to celebrate, always something to be grateful for! Join me as I document our family's journey of homeschooling our son.

Judgement and Failure

I think those are two things I am most fearful of.

I would love to say that I am a person completely secure in who I am. For the most part that is true but living in a fallen world where people have differing opinions is not always easy. We've shared our decision for Zach with close friends and family. The encouragement, support, and love has been overwhelming but I would living with my head in the sand if I honestly thought everyone we come in contact with will offer the same. While the thought of facing the judgement of others causes me to have numerous knots in my stomach I know without a doubt that we are making the best decision for Zachary and most importantly one that we feel God has called us to.

I also struggle with the thought....what if we fail??? I always try to remember to counter that thought with.....what if we don't??? How amazing would THAT be! My faith in God is paramount here. There is a popular saying "If He brings you to it...He will bring you through it". Well, God has most definitely brought us to it so I have to trust that he will carry me during the days when I feel overwhelmed, not smart enough, frustrated, etc. I hope and pray that the awesome, and phenomenal days will far outweigh everything else.
