Gonna have to be a quick post tonight. We had a bit of a water problem this evening that took up our time. Colin and I are just now sitting down to the things we wanted or needed to do tonight. I also think Colin finally ate his dinner around nine. Poor guy.
Anyway, yesterday I was interrupted by grace that it was a co-op day. We moved here shortly before the school year began and I was looking for a homeschool co-op for our family. Of the biggest groups in town, one was full and the other a little out of the way. I was also not sure about how the timing of either would work for our current life stage, i.e. having a napper.
One day I was poking around online and found a note in a church bulletin announcing that a woman named Patty was trying to start up a new homeschool co-op to meet biweekly on Wednesday mornings. Seemed ideal for us! So in late August, I traipsed to a meeting with a couple of strangers to see how things would go. Turns out they were hoping to have a fun, laid-back co-op environment, which is what we were used to and loved about the Pittsburgh group we left behind.
It has been a great year getting to know these two other families. With only a few more sessions before the end of the year, yesterday I was feeling so grateful for God's provision of this group. He hears our prayers and answers them, timing it all so perfectly. Sometimes He even uses Google searches and just-coming-into-being groups!
Can you look back over the last six to twelve months and see the hand of God guiding your steps?
Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
