The school year fast approaches and we don’t have school books yet. The planner/preparer in me wants to have everything all lined up and ready to go! But God has another plan. Last year, I sold my piccolo from high school and was able to get all my books at once. This year, I’ve sold one thing and made a little bit of money, I’m baby-sitting for a little money next week, and I’m just trusting that God will provide the rest.

I’m realizing that everything doesn’t have to go the way I think it does. Technically, I could order a few books to get started with and buy a few more later and a few more later. Or I could start in September instead of August. But the important thing is that I just need to have peace that God will provide (He always does!) but in his own timing. So once again I’m just trying to exert my will over God’s – yeah, like that ever works. 😛

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
