the lunches are packed. teeth brushed. anticipation high. hearts filled with mixed emotions. we are a family. we find comfort in the safety of each other.

the lunches are packed. teeth brushed. anticipation high. hearts filled with mixed emotions. we are a family. we find comfort in the safety of each other. summer has brought its mountain top highs and valleys low. but a constant remains "circus stick together" as we say.  tomorrow change will take place. our time together will be seasonally interrupted with school. 

Tay will dominate 4year old pre-school. Vea starts Kindergarten. Nay begins 3rd grade. Gage enters Jr. High and Mack is almost half-way done with High School. Shay will of course boss me around at home meanwhile. my prayer tonight is that this year we lay yet another layer of FIRM foundation into their hearts.  we are preparing them for life. not a life lived for self but for the one TRUE life giver. JESUS.  school provides opportunity for interaction with friends some good, some not so good. their spirit will be tested with perseverance, discipline and obedience. school is not easy. it shouldn't be. life is not easy. a life lived for JESUS is not easy but like our family one constant will remain. JESUS. He is the same yesterday, today and forever {Hebrews 13} and SO we wake tomorrow with confidence amidst change.

Awesome post Leah! Loved what u said about school preparing them for REAL LIFE! We cannot live in a Christian bubble for we have a foot in TWO worlds...this imperfect, tiresome, challenging one, & the Glorious one to come! May we represent both worlds well! I am soooo thankful that GVCS is becoming more diverse for that truly represents the heart of God & the heaven we look forward to! P.S. Would luv 2 have u do an outdoor family shoot in October! When r u free...what is ur fee please? Feel free to FB me or text me at 681-1150! Thanks Leah! :-D
