Kinda Short, But Full Of News

My kids had their open house for kindergarten today. We met their teachers and saw their desks (so cute!). They are super excited to start their first full day tomorrow. I just don't know if I'm ready for them to start. Don't get me wrong I'm excited my babies are moving through new stages in their lives, but it's really scary as a mother to have your kids away from you. Derek and I have essentially controlled every aspect of their lives for the last 5 (Ashley) and 6 (Alexander) years. Now I don't have as much control and that scares the fluids right out of me. I know I need trust God with them, trust that He will keep them safe. He loves them more than I do (which is hard to comprehend). Pray that I'll trust God with my precious little children.

"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations." Jeremiah 1:5

I officially started school today. I love learning! It's so great. I have some nerves though. I'm so worried I'll fail. I'm such a perfectionist that if I can't be perfect I don't want to do it all. God is working on my heart with this, but it's hard not to revert. I know I'm going to do fine. The nerves should go away once I establish some habits and get the swing of things. God is working that I know for sure.

Happy Monday Everyone!!

  1. You should join a Moms In Touch prayer group! There should be one in your area, they are international. I have been very sporadic with this myself, but I can tell you that when you pray specifically for your kids with other moms, and pray in agreement, God is absolutely AMAZING! Not that He isn't amazing already, but still... it is truly awesome to see Him work so specifically for us. All you have to do is google it...
