On Taylor's hand




Taylor was cleaning the kitchen when I noticed it. A verse on the palm of her hand.

She looked embarrassed when I gently turned her hand over and read the following:



Show me the way I should go

For to you I lift my soul

rescue me from my enemies

I will hide myself in you.

Psalm 143
Does homeschooling your children give them a nice easy road with no bumps?
Does it shelter them from all trouble and heart-ache?
So many people have said to me "you can't shelter them from the realities of the "real" world by homeschooling them."
They have to face the big bad world sometime.
Our kids are more sheltered than if they went to public school but
they still have to learn that we live in a fallen, sinful world and heartache and misunderstandings cross their path just as easily at home.
Friends still say things that hurt.
Family are not always supportive.
Strangers still ask alot of questions.
Your heart still gets broken.
Feelings get hurt.
Feeling misunderstood.
Always feeling as though your going against the grain.
Home-schooling will not keep your kids from learning the lessons that this fallen world
has to offer
but...
You will be there whispering in their ear to keep moving forward. Don't stop.
Don't get caught up in the things of this world.
These are all lessons you have to learn but they don't define you.
Christ already has.
