Counting Gifts

The weekend is about to make its appearance!
Whether you're dealing in helping and linking verbs, multiplication facts, chemistry, or just the family chores....consider slowing down your weekend for some great family time!
We will be!

Today you can find me writing over HERE at Homeschool Survival.
Consider visiting and reading.  Today's post has this oh so perfect little red-headed boy at its heart!
I can already tell today is one of those days I just can't make myself WANT to stay we probably won't.  It's days when the classroom moves outside, when the creation surrounding us becomes the chalkboard, when family becomes the teacher.....that's when I am especially reminded to give thanks!

Thankful for such a FAITHFUL God.
For such a wonderful husband.
For the opportunity to teach these crazy little people.
For another day to give my best.
For the countdown to the end of this hitch.
Today, I choose to count my gifts.
Today, that choice can be yours as well!
Give thanks in everything, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1Thes.5:18b

Will you take the time today to pray for a team we have headed to the Philippines?  They have traveled there to be the hands and feet of Christ.  To be the vessels of His light into the lives of those who have lost so much.  Please pray for protection, for God's glory, and for hearts to be tender to their presence.  God knows their names!  Thank you!


On this Friday morning, they are in Manila, Philippines!  It's 11PM on Friday night there!  They should fly out to the other side of the Island on Saturday at 10:30.  For those of you who don't know, they will be rebuilding the Open Door Baptist Church!  Keep those prayers coming!  Thank You!!!
