A funny thing happened to me while my husband and I went on a walk through our neighborhood last week. I saw a fork in the road, a table fork! The crazy thing is that it was within 5 feet of an intersection and a stop sign. Now, if that wasn’t a sign from God, I don’t know what would be. It’s funny how this post has a road theme- like my post about street names earlier. I really am not preoccupied with roads or streets!
Well, after receiving that “sign” 🙂 I have been looking at this school year and trying to be cautious and not committing to anything more than what I already have planned this year. I am also trying to see when I come to a decision, which fork in the road I am to take, not just leaping into things and then stopping to ask the Lord if that’s okay or whining after I have made the decision. You probably do a much better job than I do about the decision-making process, but if you are like me, why not join me in carefully considering what to add to the school year before committing to doing something?
I rode my bike back to where I saw the fork, but alas, it was no longer there. But…. I DID take a picture of the intersection.
I love, love your blog. Thanks so much for sharing with homeschool community. My favorite local “sign” intersection is Grinn and Barret in West Chester. Here is a link to a picture of the signs: http://www.flickr.com/photos/10707024@N04/5571868269/
I would love to be the person who gets to drive / walk through the intersection on a daily basis. Just another reminder for me to respond cheerfully to life happenings.
My family is beginning our homeschool year today (August 22) – yeh!! We took the time last night for family prayer time and to bless each one of our children. God be with all of us as we begin our journey!
Thanks for the compliment and thanks for the picture too! That’s a great idea to pray with your children. Blessings to you and your family, Lisa. May this be the best year yet!
