Reflecting on the Seeds I’ve Sown…
“Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, multiplying thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times.” — Mark 4:8
This has been a very busy week, in our home, on my job, and in my electronic world.
The headline news: this crazy New England weather has disrupted our normal lives, with travel and parking bans, canceled schools, business closings and oh-so-much shoveling and plowing. But it DID give us time to weave snow and winter themes into our homeschool day. Read “Snowballs, Snowflakes and Snowmen: Winter-Themed Lesson Plans” and “Building a Snowman: Lessons for Preschool and Kindergarten” on my sister sites for ideas on incorporating wild winter weather into your homeschool or classroom lessons.
While we are on the subject of homeschool, being snowed in presented a perfect opportunity to update and reorganize myself in the blogosphere. I spent some time tidying up and updating my list of nature study posts on my nature study blog, A Child’s Garden.
I update this free-standing page whenever we add new nature studies, such as our snowman work, above.
As part of my own spiritual learning, I began a study, and a series of blog posts, on prayer, entitled, “Staying Connected: The Power of Prayer.” They have been a great blessing to me to write; I hope they have blessed you, too:
- “God Calls You Friend: The Purpose of Prayer” – Part 1
- “From Chaos to Calm: Finding Peace of Mind in God” – Part 2
- “Praying for Power: Renewed and Refreshed by the Holy Spirit” – Part 3
- “Praying for an Angel” – Part 4
Seeds for Tomorrow…
While there’s always the possibility of some wonderful, unforeseen event that begs for a blog post, here is what is scheduled for next week:
It’s Still Winter…
We’ve had snow days starting mid-day on Monday, through today, and it’s still snowing, as of this writing. So I will be adding some additional winter weather lessons and posts for homeschoolers or elementary teachers…
Pray, Without Ceasing…
Prayer is good for everything: protection from treacherous weather, fortification for raising kids, and sharpening of one’s mind. So I will continue with posts in the series, “Staying Connected: The Power of Prayer.”
A Little of This… A Little of That…
Look for my bio, customer feedback and other blogging tidbits, as I continue writing for the 30 Day Blogging Challenge.
