HS Day 194 – The year is wrapping up very quickly !! :-)

Christmas is only 29 days away !!! Woot Woot !!

The kids are getting more and more excited…. consequently finding it harder and harder to knuckle down to finishing off work for the year. They are sooooo close, so it’s frustrating when the motivation isn’t there to get it wrapped up.

Yesturday we had our school breakup party at Splash… a waterpark with watersides and fun pools etc etc. The 36 kids from our school had a fantastic time. Lots of laughter, water swallowed, jumping on lillypads, chlorine stinging eyes.. and all that other fun stuff. LOL.

One of the most memorable parts of the day for me was after we’d arrived, put on our wrist bands, had our safety talk… our teacher took us through a devotion on how special we are. Now, seriously, where else would you get that in a school setup? It was so great !! We may not have these same teachers next year, due to some frustrating school politics etc, so it was great to have this (possibly) last devotion time lead by our teacher, Paul. I have been so impressed this year by the way he brings biblical principles into every activity we have had in 2014. After the devotion, Paul prayed.. thanking The Lord for 6yrs of accident free times together… and that continued yesturday right to the end of our break up day…. not a single incident. God is so good !!!

A HUGE blessing to come out of this school year, other than the fantastic curriculum, is the friendships that have been made through our coming into the group of lovely families in Unit 4. Both as parents and children, we have made, what will be, lifelong friendships. These friendships are a huge blessing due to the fact that they are likeminded, Godly people. As parents, we are able to openly discuss how we are attempting to bring up our children using biblical discipline, ideals & concepts. Also, the kids are able to chat about their struggles, trying to live IN THE WORLD, but not of the world !! It’s a hard slog, when you’re up against today’s song lyrics, advertisements, magazines, books & movies etc. However, they are also able to share their triumphs as well… having been able to speak into the lives of an unbelieving friend etc.

I am so thankful for the year that we have had. Even with some uncertainty ahead to do with our ability to homeschool as we would like etc, we have the assurance that we serve a God who is in control of all things !!

Blessings Peeps !!!

Hangin’ in there like a monkey… just gotta remember to only scratch with one hand at a time !!

The title comes from a txt message from my Pastor yesturday. She sent me a txt telling me to ‘hang in there’.. I replied with ‘Hangin’ like a monkey’.. to which she replied ‘ ok then, well remember to only scratch with one hand at a time then.’:0) She is very aware that I am doing it a bit tough right now while in full on intensive prayer campaign for my husband’s heart. The txt did give me a much needed giggle though, so this is GOOD !!
I knew that this would be a hard road and the fiery darts would come thick & fast, but man, have we been hit in the last few weeks. The kids are & I have all been under physical attack like never before.. joint pain and discomfort, injuries and loads of headaches, sinus and eye issues. It’s easy to think it’s all a coincidence, but I know it isn’t… the enemy doesn’t want me succeeding in my mission.
Well, I’ve got news for him… coz the battle is ALREADY WON !! Now it’s just my DH that needs to realise it’s already won. LOL.
I am clinging to several verses of late, but mostly Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding !! That’s the biggie here.. If I lean on my own understanding, I’ll get discouraged and likely give up… but because I know that we see but a mere reflection of how God sees things, I am greatly Encouraged !!
I also LOVE to remind myself of the armour that I wear… The belt of Truth, breastplate of righteousness, the sandals of Peace, the shield of Faiih, The helmet of salvation.. and the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT !! (Ephesians 6:10-18). Also, let’s face it… it’s pretty cool the idea of wearing the armour… a bit Zena warrior princess-ish…. ok.. I”m getting off track here. LOL.

This my BEST FRIEND’S heart I’m going after here, so I’ve taken my stand… and I’m going to STAND !! I’m not going to give up.. I refuse to be discouraged… and I’m TRUSTING that God will provide me with the patience and perseverance in the tough times to get through to the finish line. It does make me excited that the enemy is sending so many fiery darts our way… coz he wouldn’t be bothering unless Terry was to be a POWERFUL force in the Kingdom of God !!
Exciting times ahead peeps !!!
