Wednesday is the last day of school! Our two oldest children will be going to my parents’ house on Saturday for about two weeks. Then, I will have all three of my kids home with me for a few weeks before the older two go back to my parents’ house again. I’m almost ready for summer break.
What I mean by that is, I’ve been revamping their chore chart, Bible reinforcement activities and service projects. I really am excited. Not having our oldest daughter here during the day has actually not been as good as I thought it would be. We’d planned to home school but I was not willing to make certain sacrifices. Now, I’m sorry that I didn’t.
She has been influenced negatively as a result of my selfishness. It saddens me that I am no longer the person she wants to fashion herself after. I am not convicted to the point of deciding to home school for the next school year, but, I am going to make some changes over the summer and continue in them throughout the school year until I get out of my own way and become willing to make the necessary sacrifices.
“…They trusted in Him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.” Daniel 3:28 NIV
