I am in a frenzied state of non-action, as I try to plan out our 2007-2008 school year. So much I want to do, so little desire to do most of it! I have matched up history programs (Story of the World 1 for Lillian, History Odyssey 2 for the bigguns.) I've added in some read-aloud books, and made up reading lists of historical fiction and literature for the year. I have chosen our science curriculum - My World Science. I have purchased math, Latin, grammar, and some preschool books for Gabriel. And now I poop out. I've got nothing left. I'm thinking maybe a daily trip to Starbucks might improve the situation...
Oh, and the name of the blog...75 and Sunny...it's a misnomer. Try 95 and Sunny. Or 105 and Stiflingly Hot. "But, at least it's a dry heat," you're thinking. Yeah, rilly, rilly dry and HOT!
We have heard some heart-breaking news from some dear, dear ones in CT this week. It is so very, very hard not being there to tangibly "do" something. But then, God has shown me what "praying without ceasing" looks like. Please know, dear friends, that I may be far away, but I am praying for you to the same loving, awesome God that you serve. We sang the following hymn on Sunday, and this verse made me think of you:
Shelters thee under his wings, yea, so gently sustaineth!
Hast thou not seen how thy desires e'er have been
Granted in what he ordaineth?
