With two weeks of school left, there’s a little bit of pressure in place right now thanks to cummulative finals and such. Katie has been struggling lately with the history chronology tests and while we’ve been doing our best to help her with memorizing everything and practicing various testing strategies, at the end of the day, I’m mostly trying to drive home in her that it doesn’t matter to me what score comes back on her test. We love her anyway and know she’s tried her best.
We went through another round of this last night and after I kissed her good-night, broke out into song of the Doris Day variety. Now then, if only I sounded like Doris Day. And looked like her…
Philippians 4:6 has something similar, and more importantly, better to say about this: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
It’s true. Whatever will be, will be. The future’s not ours to see. Thankfully it’s in the hands of God, who understands our hearts even better than we do.
And knows how badly this family is in need of a good, relaxing summer break.
