Have you ever had a week that made you want to throw your hands in the air and shout, “Thank you, Lord! It’s F-R-I-I-I-I-D-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-Y!” ???
Yep, me too.
How appropriate — seriously, not a coincidence! — that today’s Five Minute Friday prompt is CHANGE.
SOmetimes you feel the momentum of a change churning, spilling forth and driving you into the unknown. You know God is working and is ever faithful, so you cling to Him as the rollercoaster begins to climb…
It feels like the entire focus of my life has changed in the past three weeks. My sweet, loving, amazing son started kindergarten and thought I knew where this ride was taking us. The excitement built as we bought our ticket for the big event, chose our seats, chatted nervously about how it would play out. Then the cars started moving and we accelerated so much faster than I expected. We climbed and held our breath as the wave crested, broke, and plunged us down, down, gaining speed and spinning toward a loop-de-loop I had only seen at a distance.
Plan B always comes as a shock, but God knew we’d arrive here all along — and it’s going to be an amazing ride with HIm leading the way.
After a bumpy, two-week ride in a traditional school setting, we’ve decided to homeschool our son.
Talk. about. change.
This wild ride is exciting and frightening and overwhelming and humbling. It has already changed our trajectory as a family and I’m anxious for the ride to “officially” start on Monday.
I never thought I’d say this, but I can’t wait to see what changes God has in store for us!
Sweet friends, I hope this helps explain why I’ve been
almost nonexistent around here for the past
several weeks! We’ve had a lot going on.
I have SO much more to share with you, but it will
have to wait just a bit longer. I’ve been assembling shelves,
setting up our new schoolroom and trying to get organized
all day — I’m one tired mama! I know God led us to this decision
and it’s going to be a great change for our little man.
** If you homeschool and have any
words of wisdom to share, I’m all ears! **
