Hello friends and how are you today? I’m doing well. Thanks for asking. I hope your week was very blessed.
I wish you guys had known me from when this TGI Saturday journey started well over a year ago. If you’d known me then, you’d know how much my life has evolved.
I find myself in a season of life where alot of long term prayers (and birthday wishes) are being answered in one well fell swoop. I didn’t think that God answers prayers like that. I have made a decision to not even entertain the idea that something bad is going to happen as a result of all these good things (blessings). I use to think like that but not anymore, because “I AM NO LONGER A SLAVE TO FEAR, I AM A CHILD OF GOD.”
Don’t get me wrong there are alot of challenges afoot in this season as well, e.g finances are very low. However, I have decided to take life one day at a time.
I used to struggle with anxiety (fear, worry, panic attacks) very badly, and I would pray to God for a breakthrough many, many times. And would get very angry at God for taking so long to free me from my prison. Now I see, they were actions I needed to take for these chains to be broken. Now I find myself in a season free from FEAR. Don’t get me wrong, I still feel nervous and concerned about things sometimes, but now it doesn’t parallelize me.
I prayed for a church just like the one I attend and serve with, that I only found two months ago. I prayed to be surrounded by the kind of people I am surrounded by now and build the kind of Godly friendships that are in the works.
I prayed that when I homeschool again, that they would lots of opportunities for my children to make friends and get involve in positive outlets outside of the home. God has opened doors to a 4H club in my community, a Girl Scout Troop leader who goes to my church and is going to take my daughter under her wing, and a Homeschool Coop. As well as Sunday School and church related activities we will be a part of in the future. I need not worry about my children having opportunities to socialize.
God has also sent me helpers in this season of 5 kids- 3 of which are 3 and under. This is a busy time for our family and we could use the help and support. My mom and sister is here with me until the new year. I’m excited about having them here with us through birthdays (my 1 yr old, my 6 year old and my mom), my favorite season (Fall) and the holidays. I have a pray and vision for their lives that I truly hope are in the works during this season they are here with me.
I have some really big unanswered prayers that would pull alot of things together for us and put us in a really good position in our lives. I hope they are in the works and those answered prayers are on their way too. Those prayers coming to be would just change our life immensely.
On a little side note, this week was another successful homeschool week. We learned about Biomes, Brazil, Bees (letter B week) and Joshua 1: 9 (Be strong and Courageous). Having the extra hands was such an immense relief to me. It made my home and homeschool so much easier to manage.
Homeschool Coop class went well too- this week I thought my second session of cooking class. I thought five boys to make playdough cookies (yes, they are edible cookies). I had two helpers (one of the coop parents and my sister) with that class.
This week I started a bible study using “The Revolution for Women” book with my mom and sister. And we made delicious meals with the pumpkin and tomatoes from our garden, including pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting, it was very yummy. I also made an apple pie (my second time).
Next week the Coop is going on a field trip to Lego land and today we (the coop) are getting together at one of our house for a cookout. Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend and a blessed new week.
Peace, Love and Blessings to you.
