I Apparently NEED to Rediscover Christmas


Remember my Rediscovering Christmas series? Remember the reason for it ... to put Christ at the center of this Christmas season? Remember how I was going to post supply lists on Fridays to prepare you for the next week's lesson?

Well. Last Friday you didn't get a supply list. Why? Because I was busy celebrating the "other" parts of Christmas, and I forgot. Not only that, but I had planned for us to do our lessons on Tuesdays so I could share what we did with you on Wednesdays. And, today is Tuesday, and I haven't planned for it. In fact, in planning our week, I didn't even include it.

I need a large dose of Rediscovering Christmas. How about you?

I was going to fake it and do a fabulous post tomorrow about what we did today just so you could see how on top of this I am. But, that's wrong. Just wrong.

I will be providing you with your supply list for this week's activity today. And, instead of cramming in some kind of lesson today, just to say we did it, I will, instead, spend some time today planning and meditating on the this week's topic (which is the donkey in the Christmas story) so that we can have some meaningful time as a family on Friday. I will post the results of our day on Friday, along with your supply list for next week.

Grant me some grace, if you would. I apparently need this series more than my kids. Sigh.

  2. Grace - always. I am kind of in the same boat. I planned all these wonderful service opportunities for us and now I am having problems that get in the way of those opportunities. Maybe God is trying to tell me something.

We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
