In the Quiet



I've been quiet lately. I guess in retrospect.....sometimes I need to look back to decide what direction and how to move forward. I actually need to do this quite often. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the wisdom that comes with age, listening more attuned to God's voice or simply I'm responsible for more people than in the past. Probably a little bit of all I suppose.

This is a picture from our backyard that I took in the early spring. I just love the mornings. It's so much easier to listen to God's voice when the 'voices of the day' haven't tuned His out. Homeschooling has been such a blessing to our family. As with everything though, all wonderful blessing usually accompany hard work. Homeschooling takes much patience, planning, praying and accepting your best for His best. John and I both are so glad we made the leap to homeschool. We have bonded with all our children more than we'd ever imagined! Not that we weren't before.....but it's simply different. I'm so thankful we made the decision and am grateful we have the opportunity to do so.
