Every Decision is From the Lord

Happy November! We have made it this far through 2020. We made it through a pandemic, working from home, online learning and homeschooling and almost through an election.

Stay Strong In Your Faith

Good morning. It is official, school is out for the rest of the school year! Yesterday afternoon, we received the news from the Virginia Governor. I see questions all over Facebook.

It has been raining here for the past two days. Today is a bit warmer, so I ventured out to run errands. Let me just start by giving you an update.

There seems to be an unwritten rule that moms should return to work when their kids go back to school. Kids are in school 180 days a year and home 185 days a year, not including snow days, field trips, parent days at school and sick days.

Not Qualified, Yet Still Chosen

I have been reading about Saul and his conversion over the past few days. I have been wondering why God calls such unqualified people to serve him.  "God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong".
