End of term & time to...


Today we have finished term 1 of Ambleside online's Year 3, exams and all.

You may think that it's not really a cause to break out into dancing but that is exactly how I feel. 

Every season brings new wonders and new trials and this last terms trials have made me think some days - how am I going to get through this storm without completely losing it? 

I think I would of behaved like the disciples did on the boat when the storm came up and Jesus was sleeping soundly and all they could focus on was the actual storm around them and completely freak out about it and wondered why Jesus was resting. 

Sometimes I feel that way during some heavy storms in life and I wonder why my God is silent no matter how much I pull at His cloak, I still don't get the answers I'm wanting. 

It's such a good lesson though of just 100% trusting in His awesome word, knowing that His word doesn't return void, that He is faithful, good, willing, loving, gracious and caring. 

I love my Heavenly Father and I 100% trust Him with my life no matter what is going on around me, on Christ the solid rock I stand.

We are all so ready for a 2 week break, my children have worked extremely hard this term and after my husband sat through the children's exams he said it is so impressive how much they have learnt and that he is immensely proud of their progress this year.

What a wonderful encouragement and such words of blessing for my ears. 

It makes the 'staying at home educating your children' all worth it.

Praise God!
