Since this blog is about our life as a whole and not just our homeschool experience, I am takin a little detour from the education posts today. You may or may not know that our family has suffered tremendous loss in the past few years. It has been a very difficult time for us to say the least. The grief has effected every area of our lives. Most especially my writing has been very difficult to sit down and just do. In some ways, I do not want to be so raw and negative as I have worked through my grief. I also did not want to open myself to unkind comments, since I have had a few “virtual” non-friends who made life difficult for me to share any deep feelings.
Since January of this year, we have been dealing with health crisis (plural) with both of my in laws. This has been on the heals of losing many more family members for us. It has been a blessing for us to help my in laws, and it has also been emotionally draining for us. We are still working together through our grief as a family. The children have processed their grief in different ways. Our 6-yr-old (who will be 7 tomorrow!) has a favorite song that we sing at church. It’s called, “I’ll Live Again.” You can see a video of it here:
Our hope in the journey that we are on is that we will love again with Jesus one day in heaven. Isn’t that a glorious promise to all who call on the name of Jesus and believe.
(If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Saviour, email me. I will be glad to share with you.)
Until next time.
