In my life this week…

This has been an… interesting… week to say the least. It began with a blessing, followed by a crisis, followed by a flood of grace and forgiveness, followed by frustration, followed by grief, and today we seek peace. God has taught me many lessons this week, not the least of which is giving me perspective on Monday, in the middle of what I felt was “the worst” day. Yesterday a friend of the family lost his battle with cancer but won a welcome in Heaven. Today we mourn with our friends and pray peace and comfort over them.

In our homeschool this week…

Homeschool has also been interesting. We were supposed to finish up science and double up on math everyday. (Supposed to, but didn’t.) In other news, my lesson planner for next year arrived. =)

Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

Channel Dory, “Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming..”

I am inspired by…

My middle daughter, Drama Queen has the most tender heart towards others in pain, with a huge capacity for empathy. She inspires me.

Questions/thoughts I have…

Life is short, life is unexpected, life is precious. Every single day that we have here is a blessing but we taken nearly every one of them for granted.

Things I’m working on…

Finishing up this school year, planning for the next one.

I’m reading…

Jeremiah, Chapter 14 of One Simple Act…

I’m cooking…

Chicken pinwheels:

Cheesy bites:

Chicken & pasta with zucchini, using our home canned pasta sauce. SOOO much better than storebought pasta sauce!

I’m grateful for…

Grace. God. James. Family.

I’m praying for…

Our dear friends who will miss their father/grandfather terribly. Our ladies’ group at church. My husband and our children.

A photo, video, link, or quote to share…

I can’t share links this week.. there have been many good ones. Have a blessed weekend.

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.
