Hands up for the loop-de-loop

Today I’m on (in)courage, talking about homeschooling, and how we’re not doing it this year, to my surprise. But that’s totally not the point of my post all, really. Here’s my point:

“…I’m now more surprised than shocked with life’s changes. I could write a book about all the unexpected loops and stomach-dropping dips on the roller coaster ride I’m on with my family, and school has been just one of them. But each one, going through dark tunnels and speeding around the bend with the breeze in my hair, has reminded me that I am not God, and that He Who Is is much more infinitely good, wise, and trustworthy than myself.

…Homeschooling—and the lack thereof this year—is more symbolic to me right now than anything. Symbolic of how I like to place on pedestals my ideals, my way of doing things, my preferences, above that which is ultimately best. Of how it’s so much easier to focus on the appearance of what’s best instead of what’s truly the best thing for me and my family.”

Read the whole post here, and to tell me what crazy ride you’re on right now.
