Well, I'm home. I have been technically "at home" since May when I graduated from Radford. The game plan that Dennis and I agreed to was for me to be a stay at home wife, regardless of whether or not we were going to be parents. Well, 5 days after I was "home" as "just a stay at home wife" we found out that we could add "mother" to my "title" (in 9 months) Ecstatic!
Well, it's the end of August, and this would mark the period in which I would normally walk back into the doors of some kind of school, whether it was to continue classes for my own education or it was to further the education of students. Well, I am walking through the doors of my home, daily. I don't punch a time clock, I don't have deadlines, per say, but I am not working toward the approval of man…. or… well, the approval of my man, and his God; which suits me just fine. All of this to say, that I am praising God these days that I can find joy in a clean kitchen, home-made meals, and clean clothes. But I am sort of "missing" the feeling of being apart of something else. So, I have inserted this energy into helping other people set up and prepare for their students. (Pam & Kazia) It gives me my classroom fix, and then I can happily go home and well, clean my kitchen again, and praise the Lord that I don't have to return there because someone is making me. . . but only if I am feeling generous and energized. :)
So the future for us looks promising. I am so so thankful that God has given me the ability to be at home, raising our child(ren), cooking our meals, and being the sole educator of them as well. It's a big, weighty task and I am looking forward to being prepared by God to take on. He will equip me. I know it.
