Yesterday we spent a simply beautiful day at the beach. I was reminded how most of the lessons we learn are outside of a classroom…
Nature provides it all right there, and as I stared out at the ocean I was reminded how big this Creation is, and how we are just a tiny part of it. Humbling.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you.
The sea is His, for it was He who made it, And His hands formed the dry land.
Take time to enjoy the simple…because that is often where the BIG lessons are.
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Head over to Bible Based Homeschooling to see what else we did this week, in our first week of school…
Join me on my journey to clear the clutter as I am simply living...for Him! I am a homeschooling mom sharing about my faith, family, hobby-farm life, and Jesus. I am also an author and speaker and love sharing my journey with others- and I am all about keeping it real and authentic! Join me as I seek less of this world and more of Jesus!
