homeschooling from rest

With the summer ending,like us, you're probably beginning the official start of a new school year. 
Be encouraged mama!
Whether you've chosen home school, private school or public school; 
                                    Educating is much more than can be found in any textbook.
                            Cultivating our children's heart and educating our children's minds takes commitment.

                                                        Training our children takes time!

Today I'm pondering the parable of the farmer who planted his field. Once he was done, he went home and slept. He didn't fret and worry
 "will my seeds sprout? Oh i hope those pesky crows don't get my crops! Will there be enough rain this year?!"  He didn't examine the soil under a microscope, nit picking at it, trying with 
 his own might to produce a crop.

                                           He waited. His job wasn't to produce a.single.crop;
The rains were out of his control.
                                   The farmer faithfully did the work assigned for him, then he rested! 

I'm tremendously encouraged by this! 
The Father is {present tense} producing the fruit; In you and in your child{ren}.
He is faithful; He will complete the work He has begun. You will see the fruit of your labor!

 {"For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus" ~ Philippians 1:6}
{"I am certain that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living." ~ Psalm 27:13                               
                       "Be encouraged and rest! He is good! blessings and grace to you."
