I had a wonderful chat to my friend Jen the other day. How nice it would be to live closer but not to be! A big long chat on the phone every-so-often has to suffice!
After our conversation I am left with this feeling it is not a feeling of discontent even though we approach our homeschooling differently, its not a feeling of failure as I know I am walking as God would have me, it is a feeling of being called on to do good.
If I was to use any other word, other than good such as the word better then that opens the doors for comparison, judgement, condemnation, guilt and discontent. But that is not what is on my heart. My friend calls me on to the goal.
So – it is with this attitude I begin my 2005 assessment process as well as the beginning of the re-evaluation process for next year.
