Just a little rambling

I do not know if it is my hormones or what but I have been thinking about a little of everything today. First I have been thinking about how hard it is to really be a stay at home mom that also homeschools cause you really have not that many friends. Of course sometimes that is good because your heart does need to be in the home but you know what I mean. I am very thankful to have my sister. We have not always been close but Iam super thankful to the Lord for us being close now . Without her suppport somedays I would feel I had none. I also do not understand why people feel the need to comment when things are none of their business. WE have not told many we are expecting again because we just found out and I am so early along but we have ALREADY got negative comments. WE already heard many times so you ARE gonna get fixed this time right. Well no. No,why? Because the Lord told me to be fruitful and multiply. My husband and I have grown so much in our faith but I feel we have so much more to learn. WE are still baby christians in my opinion. So when the word starts their negativity and wordly comments sometimes you rethink if you are doing the right thing, But I KNOW we are ! Just like I know we are doing what we should homeschooling the kids, Afterall we are their first teacher.IF any of your read this and you are a homeschooling mommy God knows you get frustrated, he knows sometimes you get lonely even if you have a housefull, he knows you feel stretched, he knows all this and he also will bless you greatly for following HIs will . Maybe, I am trying to tell myself this I don't know. Maybe all of this is making no sense to anyone else but me and I am just babbling. That is okay too. GOd bless each and every one of you who read my blog . And thank GOd for all the blessings he gives us. Thank you God for blessing us with a pregnancy. May this new year be the best one yet!!!!!!!

Dear Tiffany,

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog.

You are not strange at all. How many times I have had these same questions, I cannot tell you.

But you are not alone; there are many of us who have passed this way--and we are linking arms with you!

May you and your dear husband receive great encouragement and blessing this day from our Creator, Provider, and the Lover of us all!

You are a blessing--and your children will be a blessing!

I think you already know this but be encouraged in this truth: "If God is for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31 NIV Having God's approval makes us wealthier than the wealthiest worldly person. You are being obedient in the light of what you know at this point and He will grant you the desires of your heart as you listen to Him and obey. My first impression upon meeting them is that your children are obviously loved, well cared for and secure. They are very well behaved! There are many mothers (I observe on a daily basis in my line of work) who would give their "eye teeth" to know your secret! You & your husband deserve a gold star, so keep on keeping on doin' what you're doin'." Remember to read Psalm 20. I'll pray that for you.

Hi, Tiffany! I'm glad I found your blog!

A hearty congratulations once again on your new little one growing under your heart.

God bless you for remaining committed to His calling on your life. I know it does get lonely sometimes; I've been there. :) But wouldn't trade it for anything in the whole world.

Love you!

"I can do all things through Christ who strenthens me" and that includes homeschooling, too. Congrats on #6! I'm thankful for your sister, too.
