Words that have given me courage

"A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver." ~Proverbs 25:11

I will lift my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip; he who watches over you will not slumber."

Psalm 121:1-2

Oh soul are you weary and troubled?

No light in the darkness you see?

There's light for a look at the Savior,

And life more ABUNDANT and FREE!

Turn your eyes upon Jesus

look full in his wonderful face,

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,

In the light of His glory and grace!

His word shall not fail you He promised;

Believe Him and all will be well:

Then go to a world that is dying,

His perfect salvation to tell!

James 1:2-8

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you will be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not believe he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does."

Words from two of my friends who do not homeschool:

A note from Liz, along with a tea mug stating, "REJOICE":


Praying for you daily as you begin this exciting chapter of life-loving your family."

And an email from an old friend, Maryanne:

"...Let your head encourage your heart today that you would not believe any of Satan's lies. He is such a devouring lion. Praying for you today..."

"What lies behind us and what lies be us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
