Tonight, i am putting on my Student Hat and researching some new concepts i didn't even know about until an hour ago. I need to go back to the basics with each of my children for a week or two and evaluate their personalities, strengths, weaknesses, and quirks. I am hoping to find some gems in my search that will help me understand them better as a mother and as a teacher.
God keeps upping the ante around here and asking me to do a little more... the good news it that He asks after i have already done some of what He has laid on my heart to do. I figure He must be taking me through some big stuff, and being God, He understands how i function so He is feeding me in small bits to keep me from being overwhelmed! I look back over the past 2 years and i wonder how i got here, but then i see all the place markers along the way where God has stopped me and taught me something new.
I hope to be a lifelong learner, but more than that, i hope to encourage a love of learning in each of my children. The desire to seek information and apply new concepts to your life is something invaluable, and i pray that i do enough to foster that in them from day to day and week to week. I also hope and pray that i can instill a love for God and a passion for seeking His truths and wisdom in all aspects of their lives. Without God, i would probably be living on the streets (if i was alive at all by now), addicted to some drug or other, tramping it up with virtual strangers... and who knows what else. But since God has never left me, i have been comforted, loved, taught, Held. I want my children to know God that way, too.
