You'll thank me for the man you have become.
You will recognize the sacrifices I have made for you.
You will appreciate the upbringing you had when you see it contrast with the world.
You will see that your character is different because you were homeschooled.
You will know that every single day I questioned my choice to school you at home.
You will know that I pray and beg God to show me if I am supposed to do something different.
Someday I hope the Lord talks to you and you can follow Him in TOUGH choices He calls you to even when you don't want to.
Someday it won't be questioning and arguing and blaming me for your failures.
Someday you will look past me and see yourself in the mirror and recognize there is a God that loves you and pursues you and has protected you!
Someday I hope you PRAISE and thank Him for all that He has done in your life and mine and not regret the decision to school you at home.
God grant me faithfulness in the now so I can wait for the Someday...because today I want to QUIT!
I feel so attacked and blamed and hated and it hurts.
Son, we view everything different. What's important-different. How can I expect you to understand? Appreciate? Respect?
Grow a wise heart—you'll do yourself a favor;
keep a clear head—you'll find a good life. Proverbs 19:8
Discipline your children while you still have the chance;
indulging them destroys them. Proverbs 19:18
We humans keep brainstorming options and plans,
but God's purpose prevails. Proverbs 19:21
If you quit listening, dear child, and strike off on your own,
you'll soon be out of your depth. Proverbs 19:27
Pretty much ALL of Proverbs 19 ROCKs!
I needed to cry. I needed this time to get in God's word. Thank you son for driving me to the ONE who matters most.
I love you!
