It was beautiful outside today. I went outside and just stood there with my eyes closed and felt the sun on my face, the gentle breeze and the birds singing. How marvelous God is. He gives us such beauty, but sometimes we fail to take the time to enjoy it. That’s what I love about homeschooling. We can just put everything aside and go out and enjoy the day. I feel so sorry for children who are in school all day. I wouldn’t want to be stuck inside and miss one thing that God has given me that day. We are blessed in so many ways. Even when it rains or snow falls, it is still a gift from God and we should accept it and be thankful. I hear so many people complain about the weather. It is either too hot or too cold, raining or snowing. I have learned over the years to accept it. God knows why He sends the type of weather He does and He doesn’t have to explain it to us. So always remember to enjoy the day with your children no matter what the weather, because just as seasons change so do our children. And with each passing season they are growing more and more. They are the sunshine in my life even when it is raining.
