Interrupted by Grace {Day 10}: Our New Co-op

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.
Proverbs 19:21
