"He has made everything beautiful in it's time."Ecclesiastes 3:11
A big part of my fears and worries in homeschooling is my kids not being where they should be academically. That I won't being able to teach them everything they need to know. I also tend to want to rush them through the day so we can just be done. Sometimes things don't always go as I've planned. The lessons I've taught don't always click right away and my little pupils don't always get everything. I don't always respond the right way. The refreshing truth is...is that it is okay. There is no rush. We are not in a race. Children and adults all learn at their own pace.
So many times I have pushed my children when they weren't excelling in an area, only making them frustrated and feel worse about themselves. The times I have given them space and encouraged and spurred them on when they were ready; is when they have excelled far beyond what I could have imagined.
He is making everything beautiful...in it's time. For this I am thankful.
