Our new chapter in homeschooling has started on the first week of this month. Thus far, we have been enjoying our days with our time occupied with work to do (that means, more school work + chores = less sewing time for me).
The waking up for the first week was a complete failure for the kids as they were adjusting to wake early. This week is better, Grace woke up early today, packed her bed, showered, eaten her breakfast and even had her morning devotion. At this timing 9am the little boy is still snoozing.
Ever since we resumed schooling the day went by pretty quickly. The schooling time seems to shorten and at times we tried to catch up with work undone. With more teaching and one to one time with Job, I am left with little time to do sewing. When nightfall, I am exhausted and want to hit the sack as soon as I can.
Told myself “Take one day at a time”. These words sound easy, isn’t it?
But they were quite hard to do.
We follow a time table closely, but there are times when we took a longer time to complete a subject and the rest will be pushed back. Rushing through those incomplete subjects is a big no – no as we will lose our focus and how much we can take in is in question.
Remembering God’s word at this time is a good reminder to me (and us) that being organized and prepared for what may comes doesn’t mean that things will move according to what was planned. As we try to pressurize ourselves a little each day to excel, we must also remember to seek God daily for strength and wisdom.
Matthew 6:34 KJV
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Have a wonderful week ahead! ~ jean.
