• End of Homeschooling

    End of homeschooling equals the beginning of learning.  That’s what I’ve been thinking lately, that the end of our homeschool journey has been the beginning of my learning journey.  I’ve always enjoyed learning new things, though I didn’t really like school.  Once I graduated my desire for learning grew, and I wanted to take some college courses.  The change was, I wasn’t being forced to go to school and learn things that really didn’t interest me.  With college courses, I got to pick what I wanted to learn, and it was my choice to go.  I didn’t go for a 4 year degree, but did take courses for what I…

  • Keeping busy

    Its hard to believe that its February already.  It’s been a busy beginning of 2016, but so far all good things that are keeping me busy. Here is something you may not know about me.  When there is a big project I plan to work on, everything else seems to go on hold, especially in my mind, until that project is done.  I get through the bare basics, knowing that this project is waiting, and I never feel like I can get on with other things until this project is done.  But yet when I have time to work on the project, I don’t always do that, so things are…

  • Creative in 2016

Right now,…

  • Word and goals for the year

    Like a lot of you, I seek the Lord and ask Him to show me a word and/or phrase and bible verse for the year. Last years word was intimacy, growing more intimate with the Lord. My verse was the first part of Philippians 3:10, that I may know Him. Honestly, I had forgotten that was my word and verse part of the year last year. Then I was reading in Philippians and saw that I had noted that it was my word and verse for 2011. I’m so glad I make notes in my bible. I did finish up the year trying to grow in my intimacy with the…
