Little Pumpkins and faith
Everytime we move, there is always that moment of panic.Sure, a new adventure is thrilling but there is also a level of fear too... fear of the unknown... fear that we'll never really find our place to fit in...the dread of leaving your comfort zone and the relationships you've formed with people....
It has been 2 years now, and we had thought we'd found "our place" to belong but found ourselves starting over again and feeling that lonely moment of panic once again.... but today I had a moment of calm followed by this overwhelming feeling of joy as I saw our newly founded homeschool group gathering in numbers (32+ kids) for our first field trip at our local pumpkin patch. I have met these moms thru all sorts of circumstances, and we all come from very different backgrounds, but we all agree on one thing- supporting each other on this homeschooling journey!
Once again, I am reminded how GREAT our God is... and that His plan is so much bigger than mine! :) As I looked around as this very eclectic group of moms (with a few dads mixed in there too!) I felt so very blessed and couldn't help but say a little prayer of thanks...
Between the projects we've been working on for school, the puppets and pegdolls and now the first of many fall outings.... our fall is off to a grand start! :) How is yours shaping up?
