May is so busy!

I have a really busy this May with my home school groups. I am the Middle School coordinator of one and the VP of another. I also just realized I admin 12 pages on Facebook alone, along with this blog and one group web site. I also schedule appointments and answer the phone for our family biz.

We have had our K-8th grade graduation, our very formal High School graduation, we just did our annual two day used book sale, end of the year beach party. 

It was filled with happy tears.

Got books?

 Tonight I have the Birthday Club dinner, then Friday night is the last MNO for my north group.

Next week doesn't slow down either with Dr's appointments, and our states Home School Convention (yay!).

My south group is also busy and doesn't stop for the summer because we are a mom's support group as well as a home school support group.

As with everything give praise, and do all things to the glory of God. I am so blessed and honored to have wonderful people in my life.

Who's Holding Up Your Arms When You Are Weary?

If you are a home school mom and are getting to the end of your rope at the end of the year, who do you turn to?  Who is your Arron or Hur?

Exodus 17:11 "So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed." Eventually, Moses became weary, and so Aaron and Hur responded by holding up his arms until the Israelites were able to finally defeat the Amalekites. 

Do you have a group that supports you? A trusted friend to say you can do this?  I encourage you to seek out Godly women, Titus 2 women that will hold you up in prayer, phone/text support, or just getting a quick cup of Joe to get you out.  

If you don't know anyone in real life that will encourage you, there are many home school sites with wonderful support. I just joined Homeschoolscopes on Facebook. What a fun place!

You get to see real women who love to share their hearts, ideas, blogs, and resources. 

2nd Timothy 4:1-8  
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at[a] His appearing and His kingdom:Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
We need to finish well. With Him all things are possible! God Bless you in your journey.

At work with the hubs

Today I am keeping my beloved company as he works. We are in beautiful Treasure Island, FL. Someone got a real sweet deal with a fixer upper. It is small but charming right across the dare I say street, it is more like a skinny sidewalk from the beach.
Oh how I would love to be further south and steps from the beach.

I really love living in Florida and I am so thankful to be here.

My hubby works beyond hard to provide for our family and I appreciate when I can go with him and see beautiful houses.

God has given him incredible talent with his hands and he is well loved by everyone he works for. #proudwifeypoo.

I love this man to the core if my being.
As it is the National Day of Prayer, I hope all you wives lift up you husbands with a special prayer today for strength, integrity, honor, wisdom, health, and humility. I pray you all respect your husbands as head if your homes and as God's gift to you all.

Life goes on

Time has come and gone as people in my family have.
I have grieved for a very long time, in my humble opinion. I never thought I would be that person that would get stuck, but there I was stuck in the sadness of losing my mom.

Well God sustained me and I am on my way back to life. I ate myself to a gross version of myself I didn't even recognize. I have lost some of that and I will continue to work on my diet for health sake and my family.

I am looking forward to a great summer. We have just finished another year of our co-op with our group It was a great time with cooking, p.e., photography, foil lettering, civics, card making and more.
Valentines goodies.
