The Start of a New School Year
Man makes his plans, but the Lord directs his steps. This is just so true. I had such big plans for starting off the school year... more scheduled, amp up the academics a little, expect a little more (from all of us). And then August happened. We were hit with waves of medical challenges, and they are still continuing as of the second week in September. We began school anyway, in the midst of minor chaos. And while it hasn't ended up looking anything like I planned, I am glad we started, and we are plugging away and dealing each day with whatever the Lord allows in our path. And we are learning. In addition to the new books we are working through, we are learning to trust God, to sacrifice our time and dreams, to pray for others, to let go, to serve, and not to give up. Those are lessons worth learning.
