He’s the Master of My Moments

This is a chorus from a song I wrote, based on quotes from Laine of Laine’s Letters ( www.lainesletters.com ) and that so appropriately describes my life today, and every day!


You’re the Master of my moments

The Ruler of my days;

I want to hear Your voice alone,

Please teach me Your ways.


You’re the Master of my moments

The Ruler of my days,

May my life be a constant flow

Of neverending praise.



In 17 years of homeschooling, it’s only appropriate, that, like about 14 or 15 others, this year will not start "normally"!    But, we gave up being normal a l-o-n-g time ago! 


The Richardson Real Life Experience Ranch starts their fall semester TCAU—Total Chaos As Usual!


But isn’t that the beauty of having my children at home, learning from real life as it comes vs. an artificial world that has no relevence to their lives in any way?   They truly learn more when they are motivated or we’re going through it (I highly doubt if anyone would have been interested in learning about chicken pox just for the fun of it)!


I’ve seen it work in my older daughters–they learn in spite of  "life" happening!  Or is that because of life  happening?


God is getting me out of the way again!  There is no way I can credit things to my wonderful, well-laid plans and curriculum.  Our days are truly His, and our curriculum is the life He gives us.


May we embrace it, live it to the fullest, and enjoy the adventure He’s giving us!


Is there something not going the way you planned today?  See it as coming from the hand of God, His "adventure" for you! 


Now, go and enjoy your adventure!

    I got your comment today, and I wondered, "Who is this person?"!! LOL

    Good thing I checked my spam!! Your email was in there!

    We live in northeastern IN, near FW. Thanks for the email, the comment and the links. I look forward to getting to know you and your family better through the blogs, and perhaps we will get to meet too!

    Chaos… it seems like we are in that usual state too (but it is just normal life here!). We are straggling in getting started, actually. We have a few workbooks going, and I am still working on lapbooks and such. :D Still learning life as usual.
