When I reflect back on the last few months, I'm so thankful that the Lord allowed BIG doors to open for my kids to go to a private Christian school, and for also allowing me to work there as well. I know I've written about this before when I gave an update on changes in our family, but, it's just so amazing to me how the Lord totally knew my heart. He knew that although I was overwhelmed with homeschooling, I was not willing to give up. The only option (which seemed impossible at the time) was to send them (or even one) to a private Christian school. And not just any school, but one that we would be able to afford, and one that really focused not only on education, but also the kids spiritual walk.
When I prayed about just my oldest daughter going to this school, all I asked was for His will to be done, and not mine. Just a straight yes or a no. We would be satisfied with either answer because we knew that He knew what was best for us.
I never imagined that the principal (who after only meeting one time for our orientation), would ask me a couple of days later if I wanted to enroll my four other children in exchange for me working there! And, mind you, my oldest daughter was accepted to go there on a 75% scholarship!!
I get to see my kids throughout the day, they are getting a WONDERFUL education, the teachers are awesome, I've made new friends, I get to fellowship throughout the day, I get random hugs from preschoolers, and I get to work in a Christlike environment! Oh yah..and I get summers off too!! I could not ask for more!!
Wow...God's plans ARE definitely way better than ours!!!!
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths."
