A new day

[Through] the LORD's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. [They are] new every morning; Great [is] Your faithfulness. Lamentations 3.22-23

Starting a new day, a new schedule, a new month, and a new school year.

Had the realization of some pretty nasty parenting mistakes this weekend - thank God for His mercies, His wisdom, and His guidance. And, praise God for a new day to try again.

We are starting a new homeschooling year today...with a new schedule.

Another need for such an elaborate schedule? DaHubby starts school tonight - one of his four classes this semester while still working 40+ hours a week. He will be gone three nights a week and from 9-noon on Saturdays til Christmas.

With this schooling, we were hugely (and can I say REALLY hugely) blessed when DaHubby was one of 10 students selected from over 100 of his classmates to be awarded a full-ride tuition and books scholarship for the 2008-2009 school year. However, with DaHubby having to drop his standard overtime, money is still getting squeezed a little tighter. And, the hospital bills from last month are now starting to roll in. A new month; a new budget.

Trying to make sure each day is re-focused on Him and to His glory and I'll let Him take care of the rest.

Congrats to your hubby! What a blessing to be able to stay out of school debt! The verse from Lamentations is the theme verse this year at Joy's school. I love the peace it gives us.
