When one of our granddaughters was very little, her family and Ray and I made a business/pleasure trip to California. Her mother happened to be behind the wheel at the end of the trip. When we pulled into the driveway, our little granddaughter said, “We’re home! We made it! Good job, Mama!”
On this Friday morning, I want to modify her words a bit and pass her encouragement on to you. “It’s Friday. You’ve almost made it through another week of homeschooling! Only today to go! Good job, Mama!”
We so often believe that time is our enemy, but time is really a precious gift from God. I have written before about the blessing of one day.
And there was evening . . .
. . . and there was morning,
I love that God gives us just one day at a time, but I also love the other time markers He gives. Those are precious gifts, too.
God saw all that He had made,
and behold, it was very good.
And there was evening and there was morning,
the sixth day.
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed,
and all their hosts.
By the seventh day God completed His work
which He had done,
and He rested on the seventh day from all His work
which He had done.
The very first week in world history was seven days, just like our weeks are now. Just as it is refreshing to start a new day, it’s refreshing to start a new week or month or year — and each one is a gift from God.
So I hope you will celebrate the accomplishment of another week of homeschooling. Good job, Mama!
The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
