Let’s just call it a mini-breakdown, shall we???

It’s been one of those days.  We’re coming back from a week off for Fall Break.  No one’s in the mood to do school work while it’s so beautiful outside, but it’s something we must do.
I’ve been going through somewhat of a “spiritual rehabilitation” – for lack of anything better to call it.  Not so much in the sense that I am questioning God (his blessings are evident in the simplest of things in my life), but in my desire to do better and be more.  In evaluating, I’ve began questioning my abilities and motivations.
It all came to a peak as we were trying to get through math.  The kids didn’t have the best attitude and I heard “but I don’t get it” one too many times.  So, I snapped at them.  And then I felt guilty.  Then we all ate some Halloween candy and discussed attitudes, happy faces and happy hearts, schedules, and math.
It was so much better after a little chocolate.
I was reminded of this verse:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding: in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6

I’m trying to maintain too much control on this path of life and need to remember to just lift it up to God.  I thought a project was in order, so we made these:

(Excuse the poor photo quality…my good camera’s battery was dead!)
The banner came from Emily at Jones Design Company’s November Monthly Newsletter.
The deer silhouette came from here.  I cut it out and used some scrapbooking paper to enhance it.
I hope you have a wonderfully, blessed day!

    We all have those little breakdowns. I am so thankful that God is so full of love, mercy and grace. I ask for forgiveness often from God and my family. Love the banner and the deer silhouette. Have a blessed day!

      Thanks, Joy! I praise God for his mercy, love, patience, and grace everyday – and I pray for those same qualities in my own heart.
