Finally, we have hit the books again. As much as I was trying to get excited and get the girls excited for school again, I must say that I was really dreading starting up again. Don't get me wrong, I love schooling, it's just the thought of having to train the girls again into concentrating and focusing that has been hanging over my head like a dark cloud. Shame...the girls had a tough day today, they were so out of the working environment, that it was a bit of a struggle, but we focussed on heart matters, and at the end of the day they were ready to try harder tomorrow...we'll see how that goes.
On the home front, not the home-school front, things are also on the up again. We have been so out of routine, that everything just goes for a loop. Family worship was wonderful, and we as a family really felt refreshed by the Lord - especially Rachel, she was so emotional about God's amazing attributes, just thinking about the fact that God saw all of His creation all of the time had her almost in tears with joy...it was wonderful to see!
The girls have once again started praying for another baby, and included in their prayers were prayers of heart-felt requests for God to make them godly girls who would teach their new sibling the ways of the Lord - GOD IS SO GOOD!!! It is wonderful how after such a dry season God gives His showers of blessing!
