A New Era

In just a few short weeks it will be the beginning of a new era for me. My youngest will be graduating from high school and is making preparations to head off to college. My second child is currently in Bible college. She will hopefully be finishing up next year. My oldest daughter is now a mommy. She and her husband travel with Bible Revival Ministries. So...all of my babies will be grown up & out of the house (well...except for this summer when everyone will be home...and every weekend when the younger two come home from college). ANYWAY...after seventeen (yes, 17) years of homeschooling I am excited, fearful, and wondering what in the world I will do with all of my time. I don't want to waste my time. I want to grow in my relationship with the Lord and be a servant for Him. I don't want to jump into anything too quickly, yet I want to be available. I'm praying that the Lord will direct me and help me to use my time wisely. There are so many opportunities in our church, community and even in the blogging world. I know that it would be easy to just hibernate for awhile and play "woe is me - my nest is empty," but I have raised my children to do what they are doing. It is very fulfilling to see them each grow and mature. Exciting days are ahead!!!
I just want my heart to be in the right place.

You have such a beautiful family, Cathy! I'm sure you will find many things to fill the void. Do what I do, & plan things for the NEXT time you are all together. That always keeps me busy! :0)
