Do not grow weary

I would say this homeschool week was just short of an utter failure. Our weekend was jammed packed from Thursday to Sunday and so I had zero time to plan school for this week. When that happens, barely the bare minimum gets done and what we do manage is haphazard at best.

This morning I was discouraged. I had a lot to do today. School goes really well when there's nothing else going on, but add in anything else--a holiday, a birthday, a weekend trip,  illness, ministry commitments, co op, errands, a house in desperate need of cleaning-- and it can sometimes feel pretty impossible.

After spending some time in Scripture this morning, I began cleaning the kitchen and came upon this and almost cried...

Natalie always draws on the papers in the bulletin on Sunday mornings and this was in the pile from last Sunday. So see?? I AM teaching her something! Clearly not spelling, ha! But what's important is getting through. Praise the Lord :)

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. 
Galations 1:9-10


  1. Praise the Lord indeed! From the mouth (or pens) of the little ones is always awesome and you are obviously doing something right!

  2. We should all keep a copy of Natalie's list nearby. Somehow these large and wonderful words blur the edges of any pain or transgression, real or imagined. Thank you for sharing.

  3. That is a great story! It is true that the seeds we sow are not soon seen, but with trust,faith (and time) they do grow and bloom!
