A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
I have 2 1/2 months until we pack out. I can't seem to wrap my head around this. One day, I'm totally kicked back and fine with it. Another day, I'm in a supreme panic.
Today, at our gospel study class, we talked about our 'Daily Bread'. The Lord gave Manna to the children of Israel every day. He only gave them enough for ONE day at a time. If they tried to stockpile it, or save it for the next day, it would rot and be nasty. Through this, He was trying to teach His people to trust in Him, have faith in Him that their needs will be met through HIM EVERY SINGLE DAY!!
So what about me? What's my 'manna' (aptly named, don't you think)? What is my 'Daily Bread'? My first thought with this was my scripture study in the morning. I study for about an hour all by myself every morning and it is such a fulfilling and rich experience!!
I think, though, that it's more than that. And after talking with the wonderful ladies that I meet with weekly, I came away with a different perspective and different ideas about how to approach my day.
First off, I can't think too far ahead. Well, I CAN, but I can't let it overtake my day. How sad to be so panicky about my move and rush around frantically trying to do things that just don't really HAVE to be done now...and totally ignore my sweet little 6 year old who just wants to play a game!!
The most important thing, though, that I took away today, was the fact that I need to find my 'manna' for each day, and take it--NOW. Eat it up. Enjoy it! God blesses me EVERY DAY. I need to find those blessings, focus on them, thank Him, and remember that He does this EVERY DAY so that I will have more faith in Him and trust Him completely.
What manna did I find today?
Who Am I?
As a Stay At Home Mom of 4 wonderful children, I have the amazing opportunity not only to home school them, but to do so in many different places! I am married to the most amazingly wonderful (and handsome) man in the whole world! Together, we seek out, every day, that Joy in the Journey that makes life exciting!
by Dan Brown
I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
