To My Homeschool Mommies and Friends

Hey y'all I had a fabulous yet exhausting day thanks for asking I am pooped it was great I have pictures you can see in my left side bar as you check out blog. well as far as school I am blessed it went rather well I did have one little guy my Noah who was lazy but I think by the end of day he is back in the groove of things ........ it is hard even for me to get back on track and stick to a
schedule we were pretty carefree all summer long not anymore though. well to answer a few questions I got today I will start by the one who got done early and was lost ..................
Praise God sis take advantage of those days they will not always be that way. I also when I did have a couple who got done early would let them stretch, have recess, or just do some thing on side, read, or extra work, projects, there is all sorts of things you can do to fill in the time. Or take a field trip day whooohoo!!! The options are endless Sis!
To my second question again sis take it one day at a time I dont think you need to stress over the SAT'S just yet. To the second part of your question there are many GOOD programs out there you just have to get to know your little man to see what works best for him and his learning type God Bless my sister's and I DO LOVE YOUR QUESTIONS AND IF I CAN HELP I WILL SURE TRY OR FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN. MAY HE CONTINUE TO MULTIPLY ALL OF OUR EFFORTS ON OUR JOURNEY TO EDUCATE OUR KIDDO'S AS WE RAISE THEM IN HIS WAYS GOD BLESS!!!
LOVE YOUR ENEMIES:
I thought it was awesome that the speaker yesterday spoke of the scripture in Matthew 5:43-48
and we also read it in today's "THRU THE WORD" I believe it was by no accident I think we should all ponder these things. It is soooooooooo easy to love those who are awesome and loveable and great friends with us....................however those that RUB US THE WRONG WAY,
OR OUR ENEMIES , OR THE PLAIN UN-LOVEABLE WHEN IT COMES TIME TO LOVING THEM WE TEND TO PULL BACK. WHEN THE LORD IS CALLING US TO LOVE THOSE VERY PEOPLE. I BELIEVE THE LORD WILL KEEP PUTTING THOSE VERY PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES UNTIL WE LEARN HOW TO "LOVE" THEM "ALL". I had a conversation with a friend a little while back and she was saying you know it all comes down to "love" if we would just love "all" as Jesus does the church would be without many of issues. Love does cover a multitude of sins and Praise God His very Love covered our sins. I also just studied 1Corinth.
13 and the greatest gift it speaks of "LOVE" what is love as scripture tells us in 13:1-13
It is to be real if we do not have love in our hearts we will profit from nothing else. Love suffers long, it is "kind" love does not "envy" love does not "parade itself"is not "puffed up" does not "behave rudely" does "not seek its own" is "not provoked" thinks"no evil" does" not rejoice in iniquity" (rejoicing in ones misfortune or sin) it is to BEAR ALL THINGS, BELIEVE ALL THINGS, HOPES ALL THINGS, ENDURES ALL THINGS . LOVE "NEVER FAILS" WOW that is pretty powerful in fact since I have studied it last week with a group of gals I have to say I have looked at things in a whole new light and I knew that passage for many years it was just never so powerful than those three days of careful study and commits and it is now more meaningful to me. God is awesome too cause sure enough as I studied this He brought situations
before me that would challenge me to the core and with Him I Have made it through the first
test I am sure there will be more I was blessed however that He had equipped me in a whole new way before the incident happened He is sooooo faithful and I am now everyday asking myself all the above questions on love doing a heart check making sure as I stand before "MY KING" IN this area of Love I can hear HIM say well done thy good and faithful servant oh what a joy that would be I am also blessed that when I do fall short He is gracious to forgive so to "shouldn't I be"???? He say's in verse 13-and now abide faith,hope,and love, these three, but the "GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE" that sounds as though it is pretty important to our Lord.
So may we all remember to LOVE,LOVE,LOVE and as Matt. 5:44-45 says :"but I say to you love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you,and "PRAY" for those who "SPITEFULLY" USE YOU ,and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven;
God Bless you all
Until next time,
Love,
Cindy
