Thanks Be To God

I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.

Jeremiah 31:3b

Each day in the life of our household is a miracle. Without God's everlasting love and grace, we would not be a family much less a family that has food on the table each day and that gets the laundry done each week. And it has been baby steps all the way with the glory going to our Heavenly Father.

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.

Matthew 6:33

We are a family who has to lean on God because we cannot lean on ourselves. As the youngest of five, I was taught how to love others unconditionally, but I was not taught how to care for a home or for children.

And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness"
II Corinthians 12:9a

After having children, God has had to teach me how to do even the smallest details from making a bed to changing diapers to peeling an apple to vacuuming to putting dirty clothes in the laundry basket. And He has much more work to do. Baby steps, baby steps.

But He said, " The things that are impossible with people are possible with God."
Luke 18:27

We homeschool because He gives us our lesson plan each day, knowing at this point in our lives we are unable to make a schedule much less stick to a schedule. Along this journey with the Lord in homeschooling, He has given us wonderful gifts of other moms that blog and share resources. This blog is His gift to my friends who desire to learn more from others.

The LORD bless you, and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance on you,
And give you peace.

Number 6:24-26
