HUGE Praise!!!!!!

It seems like we are always the oddballs (no comment from you Lori). We don't allow our kids to participate in many worldy things, our family "looks different", we homeschool ..and the list could go on and on. On top of that, lets add into the fact that for the past several years we have been in the only ones in our congregation in our "specific" stage of in having small children in the home...that is until recently! Another couple has started attending our congregation and they have 2 small children (5 and 2) and guess what...THEY HOMESCHOOL!!! How awesome is that ?!?! I was talking about our homeschool group tonight so I am hoping to get her to come to some of our meetings or participate in the field trips. It was hard being the odd man out before...with the other kids in our church attending NICE it is to have another family that shares our outlook! I have been praying for this for a long time. Things had gone so well until one of my best friends moved and then I felt so lonely there and really struggled with things. There really wasn't anyone there I could talk one there was in that "specific" stage of I am really praising God tonight for hopefully a new friendship!

That is how my childhood was. I was homeschooled until 7th grade and back then, NOBODY else was homeschooled. For some reason now, about half of the families in my church are home schooling. It is such a blessing to have such a great support group. I'm glad you have someone else to share life with now. Keep praying for more.
