Lesson Learned ...

This summer I have found myself teaching Sunday School again.  I enjoy teaching.   We have been studying  the end of the Kings of the Old Testament.

In times past I have thought,... oh, boy.... not the Old Testament again.


This year, I have a new knowledge about the Old Testament... thanks to 
Teaching Biblical History in our homeschooling.

As I have looked back on the life of the Jewish People, I have wondered...



Then I read our lesson from Haggai.

You see they had lost sight of what mattered to them.  They lost their zeal for  God, and choose the "easy" route.

That is the same with us. It can be easy for us to look sight of what really matters.  

Our priorities can become misplaced.

We can become so busy with all our house hold duties, our homeschooling duties, our wifely duties, that
we forget to take time for what really matters...

our Spiritual Life.

I want to encourage you my readers, moms of homeschoolers, friends and family...

Don't forget the thing that matters most...

Waiting for Sunrise.. Book Review

Waiting for Sunrise is the second book in the Ceder Keys Series by Eva Marie Everson.   This book tells Pasty Milstrap's story.  This was a very heart warming and sad  story.  Great book, great novel by Eva Everson!

Sometimes finding your future means making peace with your past
Patsy Milstrap wishes she could leave her past behind. Though she tries to put on a brave front for the sake of her family, the wounds still ache, and the scars on her soul are still deeply felt. At her concerned husband's gentle insistence, they take a vacation from South Carolina on Cedar Key, an idyllic island on Florida's Gulf Coast. A week in paradise will do them good, he says.
When a familiar--and most unexpected--face greets her at a seaside restaurant, Patsy knows she can no longer run from the past. But what will opening old wounds mean? And what will the future hold?
With a large helping of Southern charm, Waiting for Sunrise is a touching story of family, young love, and the need for forgiveness. Eva Marie Everson expertly draws out the bittersweet moments of life, weaving them into a tale that will envelop your soul.

I have to say that I don't like giving away too much of a book that I read and review.  But, I can say that you will enjoy this book.  It will give you a whole lot to think about while reading.

Happy Reading!

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
