Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
I have posted a little before about our journey to where we are now as a family and our commitment to homeschooling our children even before we were married. There were many years it seemed we would never see the desires of our hearts, but the Lord knew His plan for us, and following Him has allowed us to homeschool our children. We are so blessed.
A recent hike with the bigs to a local landmark, Heart Rock, offered reflections on homeschooling and life. Here is what I hope to keep in mind as we begin our trip to the heart.
Some will choose the easy path, some will choose the challenging path.
Sometimes the best way to get where you are going is to slide.
The lowest point often holds the opportunity for the most growth.
We can choose different paths to get to the same place.
Look for guidance along the way and keep moving forward.
Take risks but remember you may need to backtrack to find the path again.
Beauty can come in unexpected places and seemingly impossible situations.
Take moments to just be and soak it all in.
Every experience is a chance to learn.
There is a time to help and a time to ask for help.
Flexibility is key.
Find the small moments of joy along the way.
Don’t take your eyes off the final destination.
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4, ESV
