The Last Day of Summer Vacation

Today marks the last day of summer vacation!  Sunday is  the official start of our week with worshipping in the Lord's house and Monday is the official first day of our 2013-2014 academic school year.  As much as I am ready, I feel so unprepared.  But I know the Lord has called our family to home educate and through His strength we can do it.

Even though we still have at least a month of summer left, starting school always seems like the beginning of the autumn season.  I believe we are the last of the families in our neighborhood to return to school, but have some home educating friends who still have a week of summer vacation left.  So, unofficially, GOOD BYE SUMMER, HELLO AUTUMN!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!
