"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

what is best

Erin with her sewing instructor, Sarah

One of the beautiful things about home schooling is that your day is your day.  You can choose to spend it however you see fit.

You learn early on that it is up to you to choose worthwhile pursuits.  And, you get to define worthwhile.

So we strive to choose what is best.  There are so many things that are good and sometimes there is time for everything, but as we help our children to prioritize we begin to get a real understanding of why Paul said,

inspired to continue after class

Rejoice in the Lord always.

I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Romans 4:4-9

I am so thankful for The Book that answers all of my questions.

I remember a time when I was a reader of anything and was in total confusion.  How could I know what was best when everyone had a seemingly good point and they contradicted one another?

Praise Him for one Truth for all time!
