Bye bye summer. You were fun and fabulous, but way too short.

Can we go back to summer? This back to school thing we have to do has kicked.my.tail!!!! I think every year I have said something about loving a schedule and routine, but that was a big fat lie.....bring my family back to the lazy days of summer any time. That learning is nonsense until September. ;)

And, let's just pause for a minute and think about my 16 year old who is days away from having HIS OWN CAR!!! (big fat sigh) The time is flying momma's......I beg of you to truly savor every moment.

Alrighty, this next memory verse is the verse my kids school has claimed for the year so I'm going to claim it too. I didn't have to go far to find it......

Lean into Him sweet sisters. I'm so thankful to memorize His Word. It truly is life.

"Delight yourself in the Lordand he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4 ESV

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. James 1: 2-3

I am persevering! (Is that even a word?!)

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Oh! How I wish my children could go to a christian school! We are in the boonedocks (which I love)but its not even an option. I continue to pray about homeschooling, but we kicked off another year in public school (sigh). OK, that was my venting for the day. God just reminded me He knew Id be raising my kids here and to get on with it, LOL.

2Corinthians 5:20 NASB
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

Tried to pick something from this weekend but there was so much. This verse reminded me that we are "the miracles that give authenticity to the Gospel" and therefore be CREDIBLE!

I love back to school time -- it's like a new beginning!!

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we trust in the name of Lord our God.
Ps 20:7

I've chosen a verse that reminds me to satisfy myself by spending time with Jesus first thing each day and that is a promise I am claiming!

"Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for JOY and be glad all our days."
Psalm 90:14 NIV

Stick with it, girls! Love you, Fran!

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
