Nothin' 2 Prove

The building of Gunn Ranch Academy one caliche rock at a time; our friends, family, passions, learning adventures and our little piece of HIStory in the making!

RE: Time for change

1 Comment

I’ve never been much afraid of change; I measure my life in seasons, complete with new adventures to behold. But here at the beginning of an upcoming new season, my faith seems to be challenged by too many details: where will we live? what will our income be? will we find new friends? a new homeschool group?  girl scout troop?  gymnastics? what computer will Taylor use for her SOS program? Will we have a fence for our dogs? where will I take the baby if he gets sick?

It’s these times when I’m thankful for good friends.  You see I know in my heart where I’ve been and that God has never, not once, let me down. But trying to put on a reassuring smile for the children can sometimes be painful. That’s when my understanding friend and sil reminded me:

I love you dearly, my friend.  God knows exactly where you are, what you are feeling and He’s going to see you through.  He knows your desires and He knows above all your desire is to be with your children, raise them and homeschool them and honoring your husband but not subjecting yourself to things that you don’t need.  He knows all of that.  And you know what, He is capable of meeting all your needs — not just meeting, He can exceed them all

What a blessing to have been given such support; My prayer is that everyone can have such a friend, and that I might be that kind of friend as well.

As far as school, we are officially declaring ourselves unschoolers in the art and science of "lifeskills"  for the next couple of months.  There will be lots of teachable moments to behold as we join the civilian world again, and say  goodbye to army life.

 

John 14:27  27 Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]
