I have finally started reading the book Leslie has been recommending: Disciplines of a Godly Woman by Barbara Hughes. I have just started the book and already see areas in my life where God is (and will be ) working. I like to be disciplined but often fail in taking steps to discipline every area of my life. Hughes says “discipline is important for my spiritual life … it is the path by which the good news of Christ gives meaningful shape to all the days of my life.” First I must get rid of everything that impedes godliness and then I must direct my energy toward godliness. Godliness doesn’t just happen. I have to be intentional in this quest of being a godly wife and mother. I hope to blog about lessons learned in the coming days.
School has been going great around here. What is hard is learning to balance everything. We are keeping busy with school, home and church commitments. But most of the things we are involved with allow us to participate together as a family so that is special. And I just LOVE this time of year. I grew up in South Georgia where there were just 2 seasons: HOT and not-so-hot. So one of the things I truly love about Virginia is the weather and the fact that we actually experience all 4 seasons. I love the crispness that is in the air!
Last week, Coleman and Emmie started playing soccer with a homeschool group in town. So cute and fun!
