Some Kind of Strange Rambling

Today was our first day back at school. I sort of had a feeling it wasn't going to be the greatest. I am not sure if it was because their schoolbooks weren't lined up and ready to go or if it was just a sign I had when the 2 year old wet my clean skirt first thing this morning. Maybe it was the spoiled milk I discovered from a jug 3/4 the way full still. Maybe it was when I had to get on to two of the children and take away their favorite toys for two whole weeks... who knows? Sometimes things go roughly and sometimes thoughts pop in you mind that you just aren't good at anything. It would be great to be good at something. You know, not just do things good enough to get by, but to do something really good. Some are the prettiest, some are the smartest, some can play music beautifully, some can sing beautifully, some are organized, some are put together and fit.... then there's some of us who can stay humble easily just by being ourselves. :D I've had a lot of humbling days lately. In the shadows are feeling not so worthy there's still always the leaping joy bouncing in my heart. Despite being, at best, average I still feel a sense of ownership of the Father. I still remember what gives me strength--the joy of the Lord. I feel blessed that my God and family love me as me. Trying to look from the outside--in, I don't know if I would so much. I am truly blessed!

I was going to type of our day but somehow this is what came about. I am sure there's typos and such as the words just flowed out of my fingers. God is so good--all the time! I am so thankful He delivered me from so much throughout all these years. I am so thankful He gifted me my family. Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus!

It does seem to be harder to get back into the swing of school. We are still doing school at 3:30 and they generally start around 7:30 or so.

I enjoyed reading your entry, and I feel a lot like that as well. I am so thankful for everything that God did for us. It is so sweet to trust in Jesus.

Have a great evening with your family.

2 weeks for a punishment? Seriously?
