How has this year gone for you in your family, in life, in your homeschool? What have you accomplished this year that you are proud of?
This entire year I’ve been inspired by the life of Solomon, and my recurring prayer has been for wisdom in all areas big and little. Our family has faced more big decisions this year than any other year of its 7 year existence so far. Reading through Proverbs (almost) daily has been awesome! Highly recommended!! I take only a verse or 2 a day and meditate on it. Meditate meaning- taking the idea and carrying it out to the ends of its meaning in every possible direction to see where God leads. Letting it pass over my thoughts off and on in whatever situation I am in all day long from cooking & errands, to schooling etc. in hopes of forming a good mental habit.
I am also very proud of my son and the continuing joy and effort I see in his learning. Homeschooling this year has been a huge blessing of life-giving ideas that refresh our souls amidst the daily ups and downs. I love it!
I didn’t find the time to get to some of the Spanish goals I had in mind this summer. This is one of those things that was put aside because life plans changed and focus and energy was needed elsewhere. While we did do Spanish during school, I’m still dreaming bigger dreams of what that subject area could look like for us and hope to working towards those goals.
Circumstances that have made me stronger are definitely the conversations with other homeschooling moms and beginning to read through Ourselves, Volume 4 by Mason.
Note to self: STAY CONNECTED! It rocks!
I loved reading Tammy's reflections and want to duplicate the verse she shared in light of making New Years resolutions vs. reflections on a year that's passed. So true.
"Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of the hail, which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle? What is the way to the place where the lightning is dispersed, or the place where the east winds are scattered over the earth? Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain, and a path for the thunderstorm, to water a land where no man lives, a desert with no one in it, to satisfy a desolate wasteland and make it sprout with grass?"
