This is the day the LORD has made;We will rejoice and be glad in it.

What a beautiful day! Everyone is still asleep and I am enjoying some quiet time on the deck. I love sittng out here watching the ducks on the pond, listening to the birds, and I even saw a hummingbird checking out my flowers this morning. It is not too hot or humid yet so I have to enjoy this while I can. I just read Psalm 46. The one thing that stood out to me this morning was "Be still, and know that I am God". I have a hard time being still and just focusing on Him. That is something I am constantly working on. This morning was perfect though. I have been thinking about the first part of this year. We have gone through some tough times but I am finally seeing the good that has come out some of the situations. I feel like my family is stronger and I am a stronger person. I have learned to lean on God more and trust that He will take care of us. What an amazing feeling that is! I don't know what the rest of the year will be like for us, probably very busy with school getting ready to start and me trying to homeschool for the first time. No matter what though, I can take it with my Father watching over me.

Wow!! I am just a little overwhelmed and amazed at all the homeschool resources out there. I was nervous when we decided to take Reagan out of school and homeschool him. Now I am so excited for us! I think we are going to have a wonderful year. It is going to be a challenge with me working full-time at HCA and part-time for LTC but I am committed to making this work. I also found some great resources for Kathereine. She can "go to school" too! Thank you to all the wonderful homeschooling parents out there who have provided so many cheap and free resources! I appreciate all the help I can get.
