Last month, Anna celebrated the completion of her home education with a special Sunday service at church. She and four other young people received their diplomas, and all of our families along with over two hundred others rejoiced together.
Prelude... Ivan did a splendid job, and I wish y'all could have heard him!
"This world is not a playground, it's a battleground."
"Meditate on the Word day and night."
"Live today for Him because you're not promised tomorrow."
"Courage is required to stand...steadfast and unmovable."
"Be WHOLLY dependent on the Lord."
"Having a mind and heart fixed on the same goal makes the will unmovable."
"Congratulations on a job well done!"
Anna's picture board... I could go on all day recollecting the precious memories brought back through this. [smile]
Gift opening... Back at home, the celebration lasted well into the night as we enjoyed fellowship with family and friends!
The ten of us... Anna is a joy to our family, and it's so exciting to see her enter this new phase of life! A simple summary of our feelings that day can be found in Psalm 126:3--
"The LORD has done GREAT THINGS for us; whereof we are glad!"
