Strength.

Don't you wish that you could instantly clone yourself as needed?  It's amazing how versatile homeschooling moms (and dads!) are.  We teach, we clean, we cook, we chauffeur, we shop, we run after toddlers, we nurse babies, we run errands...and many times, we do this all in one day!!  It's exhausting!  I just want to have a week where I don't have to go anywhere.  Where all I have to do is get our lessons done, cook some dinner, and call it a day.  Impossible, I know.

But as I write this, I have to acknowledge how blessed I am to be able to do all these things.  Yes, I am tired.  But at the same time...I'm fulfilled!  It's only with God's grace that I am able to wake up every day and take on whatever the day may bring.  And it's because of His grace that I am living a fulfilling and wonderful life.

So if you are tired, if your burden is heavy, if you just want to run away for a day to get away from it all...look to the cross.  He will give you the strength you need.



"Come to Me, all you who labor and heavy laden, and I will give you rest."  Matthew 11:28
