It is such a beautiful morning with the sun shining and the birds chirping. The sky is gorgeous! I love all the colors of the blues and the greens with the splashes of color from the flowers freshly blooming. I just love mornings that embrace me. Do you ever feel that way…walk outside and feel like nature is just giving you this great big hug? Maybe I’m just weird.
Anyways, it’s Thursday and I have new WORDart for you. This is my prayer (or one of them, anyways), to know God’s way in my life. I need His direction and I absolutely depend upon His lovingkindness. In a world that is so harsh and unbending, His lovingkindness strengthens me and gives me hope. As we approach Easter weekend, I have really thought a lot about the sacrifice that Jesus made for me so that I can experience the hope that I have. He willingly went to the cross and endured pain and suffering for me, because He loved me and wanted the very best for me. He saved me and promised me an eternity with Him. An eternity where there is no pain, or tears, or sickness, no uncertainties, no suffering of any kind. I feel so humbled and in awe of His love for me. I ask myself what can I do for Him to show my thanks. I know there is nothing that I could ever do to show Him the depth of gratitude that I feel or that is due Him, but I sure am going to try my best to let Him know just how grateful I am.

It is that time of year when I take the time to really focus on homeschooling…portfolios, testing and planning for next year. Our homeschool convention is just a few weeks away and I like to be prepared, which means lots of reflecting on this year to figure out what worked and what didn’t. I am entertaining the idea of using a cyber charter school for my two oldest boys next year. I would LOVE to hear from other homeschoolers who have, are, or are considering doing this. What do you like and don’t like? What makes it work or not work for your family? If you have considered it and decided not to, why? I really want to make a smart decision, but it’s scary making changes sometimes. This is our 15th year homeschooling, so making that kind of change is a really big one.
