Then, that afternoon...we found out who the boys teachers are. Let me just tell you that I was humbled and overwhelmed by what God had done. He gave both of my boys teachers who love Jesus & are amazing teachers. It was like God was just saying...I just want to comfort you because I know your heart is sad so here you go! I am so spoiled. He just wanted to love on me and spoil me...and I loved it!(Will with Ms. Peterson...his new teacher)
Jeffrey and I have been praying about whether or not to move to South Irving. Where we live (the "bubble") is amazing and beautiful. We are so happy! However, we see the influence of materialism that surrounds us and our children. They think it is "normal" to have a house over 3500 sq. ft. with a playroom! We want them to realize where we are is not "normal" and to have an appreciation and humble attitude for what we have been given. And...it is practically all people EXACTLY like us. International community is not a term that would describe where we live!
But, God reaffirmed to me this week that this is where he wants us. He gave my boys teachers who will love on them and show them God's love. He reaffirmed that he wants them in THIS SCHOOL and not home schooled. He also showed me that he is going to use our family. Will's class has some of the "rougher" kids in it but God has given Will leadership qualities and a gentle heart that is going to shine this year...maybe even influence those around him. I am so excited to see what God is going to do!
I am spoiled rotten and I'm not quite sure why. I'm just going to be grateful...because I definitely do not deserve God's kindness.....
