Prayers appreciated

Unread post by bethinga »

Hi, all- I posted here before that my best friend of 11 years and fellow homeschool mom passed away from brain cancer in January. We’ve taken a lot of breaks this school year. I am keeping up with school, but merely checking off boxes. I’m so thankful to have the “grid” to carry me along when I can’t muster up the creativity myself. It has been a comfort. But, I miss the joy and excitement I used to have. I’d love you all to pray that my joy in homeschooling will return. I love this time with my children and want to make the most of it. Thank you. ❤️

Beth,
I will be praying.

During times of grief, you may just be able to tread water for a bit. Managing to keep yourself together through this time is an accomplishment in itself and also a gift to your kids -- one that may be even more important than joy.

But I will pray for joy, too :)

I'm not sure whether you saw the link shared on the MFW Facebook page this week, but Lisa Appelo is someone who has been a comfort to me during difficult years. I don't think you have to be in her exact situation to benefit from her heart of hope : https://vimeo.com/83687498

I will pray for you Beth. God is our comforter.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
