Endure Cheerfully

“This school of our Heavenly Father will soon close for us; the term time is shortening every day. Let us not shrink from a hard lesson or wince under any rod of chastisement. The richer will be the crown, and the sweeter will be Heaven, if we endure cheerfully to the end and graduate in glory.”
–Theodore L. Cuyler, Streams in the Desert, September 2

Earth’s Broken Things

“Christ is building His kingdom with earth’s broken things. Men want only the strong, the successful, the victorious, the unbroken, in building their kingdoms; but God is the God of the unsuccessful, of those who have failed. Heaven is filling with earth’s broken lives, and there is no bruised reed that Christ cannot take and restore to glorious blessedness and beauty. He can take the life crushed by pain or sorrow and make it into a harp whose music shall be all praise. He can lift earth’s saddest failure up to heaven’s glory.”

Financial Help for Homeschoolers

Home School FoundationThe Home School Foundation is a part of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). They help families with scholarships and other financial assistance. They have several funds, including funds for single parents, widows, special needs, military families, and more. If you need help, please don’t hesitate to apply. They have hearts full of compassion and love. Several years ago, they provided help for us. It was so much greater than we ever expected. We were able to get curriculum that we’d only dreamed of getting before. We were able to take care of some other needs, too. We felt so loved and cared for! As I think back over their gifts to us, it still astonishes me and touches my heart.

If you don’t need help, please consider giving so the Home School Foundation can help others. You never know when it may be you in need.

Encouragement for a New Homeschooling Year

“To all the homeschool moms out there, here’s my one piece of advice at the start of the school year…Trust God, be anxious for nothing, and enjoy your children. I didn’t listen when someone tried to tell me this when I was a newbie and worried when I should have trusted. But you all are much smarter than me. Memorize this verse, ‘All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children’ (Isaiah 54:13).”

From Spunky Homeschool

Do You Love Me Still?

This beautiful song means so much to me lately. My most favorite lyrics in the song are these.

If your eyes are on the storm
You’ll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You’ll know I always have and I always will

And not a tear is wasted
In time, you’ll understand
I’m painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands
