The past week we did not do our Lecciones de Español, we did not do Lecciones de Piano, or Historia either. The kids were tired, sickly and refused to follow my pace. I wanted to get things done, but we had a tough week, a week full of lessons.
My 8 year old son wrote a paragraph that stopped my agenda, shook my heart and encouraged my days.
Things to take camping
There are three important things to take camping; they are love, gear and food. The first thing that is important to take is love, love is very good and especially always better than grumpiness. The second thing good to bring is gear, because it will be important to use. Third important thing to bring is food, you could hunt food, but you could bring store food also. In conclusion, I think that love, gear and food are fine things to take camping.
Well, that was a message for me, whether I go camping or homeschool, always three things will be required,
Love, shown through my attitude. Just a smile could have made a big difference in each one of their lives.
Gear, displayed through the lessons, and things we use in our school.
Food, I can always hunt or make a huge complicated meal, but I can also bring store food.
As long as I bring LOVE, I think things are going to go better. 1st Corinthians 13:1 comes to my mind as I write this,
“If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal,”
I think we will enjoy Semana Santa, we will stop, reflect and enjoy each other. We can always use Español or English but it will be always better to speak with love, as my son said it, love is very good and especially always better than grumpiness.
Have a Blessed week.
