These days we had to deal with the threat of the hurricane “Gonzalo” but fortunately nothing happened. There were just a few thunderstorms but nothing serious. God has been protecting us as always.
Our assistant teacher Melissa has found a new job that will, unfortunately, keep her away from our homeschooling experience. So the feeling is bittersweet, we want her to have a successful experience in her new endeavors but we will sorely miss her in Joyful Christian Homeschool, specially the teacher. She was a really huge help but like the Word of God says in Philippians 4:13: “I can do everything through Him; who gives me strength.”
These days I started the course to the teacher’s certification in Texas. Yes, Anna and I are moving to Texas next year, God willing. The decision hasn’t been easy because that means that Joyful Christian Homeschool may be in it’s last year of existence. But nothing is certain yet.
There are still lots of possibilities and we are just living the today, like Jesus taught us. Luke 12:29-31 “And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.”
I love homeschooling; but as a single mother living in such a difficult place where jobs are scarce and the ones available are not stable, sometimes I have to think about moving on to greener pastures. Sometimes we have to take careful decisions and pray that doors keep opening. God wants us to be like Joshua 1:7-8: “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
Taking these kind of decisions is never easy. But if God is in this endeavor; we have nothing to fear. Brian and Anna will be well taken care of wherever they take their classes next year. They were both presented to Him and they belong to Him.
We serve a good, awesome, generous God who has everything in control; besides He has the last Word. Amen.
