"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

Here's what I'm thinking

My mind is full these days. Here is a little peak inside...

I've been trying to figure out why there are so many more people with allergies today than there were even ten years ago. Something has to be causing it and there has to be something we can do to stop it. I am reading some interesting material and trying to get my mind wrapped around this. In the end, we are all in God's hands. But what do we do for our part in his stewardship? This is leading me to reading labels. It is surprising and unsettling what you find. I picked up my deodorant. The active ingredient in my deodorant is anhydrous. Seriously? I have driven the truck for my dad a couple times, pulling an anhydrous tank behind me. His instructions: If you go in the ditch or have an accident make sure you run away as fast as possible. This is the active ingredient I am putting on my skin, the largest organ of my body? I know it is a minuscule amount compared to an entire anhydrous tank. Still, isn't that kind of strange? I'm working on all these things, trying to get my sweet Cora more healthy.

We are going to start school again in August. That is not far away. I am a little panicky about how this is going to work now that Cora is very mobile and I will also be doing a little school with Lydia. Um, how am I going to get it all done?

Thankfuly, God's grace is sufficient for me because His power is made perfect in weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

The idea of school starting for us has been a little overwhelming the last few weeks. I'm really going to start this?!?!?!?

I just ordered some more for my math curriculum, but don't have the Teacher's guide. Um, come on ebay!

When are you thinking of starting? I'm looking at mid August, though I'm sometimes tempted to put it off until Sept. However, I know we'll be taking off some time in January :) so I better get started soon.

What are you going to use with Lydia?
