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. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
