I Have Hope In God

Happy Monday Morning! School has been closed for almost 3 weeks. Our breakfast room is surrounded by windows. There is a robin that keeps banging against our windows. At first, we thought that he wanted food. It happened so often, that we did some research on the robin's behavior. It turns out that male robins… Continue reading I Have Hope In God

Be Transformed By The Renewing Of Your Mind

Happy Friday! It is a beautiful Spring Day in Virginia. When we went outside, my kids were so excited to see that the first tulip bloomed. A pretty, red tulip. Even though the Coronavirus has shut down the world, there is still life inside our homes and outside too. Flowers are blooming. Buds are appearing… Continue reading Be Transformed By The Renewing Of Your Mind

Hearts Overflowing With Peace and Goodness

Good Afternoon! So, it is day 14 of being home. The news is confusing. Is the country not doing enough to stop the spread of the virus? Or, is the country being too cautious? Did Virginia make the decision to close schools too soon? Yes. No. Maybe so? All this information is swirling around and… Continue reading Hearts Overflowing With Peace and Goodness

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. When will we get yearbooks? What about Prom? How will we get their school supplies? What about graduation? Our lives were halted by this… Continue reading Stay Strong In Your Faith

God Is In Charge

Good morning. We have been home since Thursday, March 12, when schools announced closures. We are going on Day 12 of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Some mornings I wake up and just cannot believe this is actually happening. Do you feel that way? I am wondering if schools will be closed until September. I think that… Continue reading God Is In Charge

The only thing that we can control is putting our complete trust in God

Good Morning. Last night I had a dream that I found the last package of toilet paper at the store. I bought it, and it was in my shopping cart. On the way out of the store, I stopped to look at laundry detergent. When I turned around, my cart was gone. My purchase was… Continue reading The only thing that we can control is putting our complete trust in God

Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

Good Afternoon. I wrote my last post during reading time. Now, it is recess, so I can write again for a few minutes. This morning we read the March 18 devotional from the book, Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions For Kids, By Sarah Young. It was perfect for today. We are living in a very different time. We have… Continue reading Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

God Will Equip Us

Good Morning! On Monday, I received an email that my kids would be out of school until after Spring Break, April 13. 2020. I had expected that this would be the case. However, the email also said that school may be closed to up to 12 weeks. That would be summer vacation...so there is a… Continue reading God Will Equip Us

Search For God With All Your Heart

Good morning. I hope you are doing well. I think I am moving from the state of surprise about the Coronavirus Pandemic to a state of acceptance. If everyone stays home and self quarantines, this too shall pass. Will everyone follow the advice? Probably not. The Lord has been after us since he created us.… Continue reading Search For God With All Your Heart

Thank you, God, for this opportunity to stay safe

Good morning. How are you doing through this Coronavirus Pandemic? I mentioned yesterday that our county has closed schools through next week. Our neighboring state, Maryland has closed schools for two weeks, starting on Monday. Yesterday, our county was the first school closing announced (besides universities). I trust in God, but yesterday, I felt uneasy.… Continue reading Thank you, God, for this opportunity to stay safe
