gratituesday - education

we hear people complain all the time about "schools these days" or the "problems in the education system"... 
well, i am fully thankful that we, as adults, teens, and children alike, all have the opportunity to further our education.  we have the freedom to educate our children as we see fit.  we also have the resources to learn and keep learning until the day we die.
i am so grateful for this.

today was jones' first day of school.  aleemay had her first day of first grade.  and adejay is the big girl in 7th grade this year!  i am so thankful that my kids can go to school.  i'm so thankful that i can trust the teachers they are appointed to teach them the skills and lessons that they feel fit.  i'm glad that i can trust God in our educational decisions.  He is our leader.

maybe later i'll post some pictures and give some details on our "first day of school"... until then, think of something that you can lean on and be grateful for today! 

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
