Back to School...

Well, I certainly have been M.I.A. around here lately. Sadly, I still can't promise that things are going to be much better in the near future, either. Bummer, because I love to keep up with y'all, but tomorrow starts our school year back and that needs to be my focus.
We have been seriously busy over the last week or so with a very successful Back to School Bash for our support group families, an amazing Labor Day weekend blowout, and just flat getting ready for school. I am pretty panicked about the latter because I STILL don't feel ready for it. Oddly enough, this is the first year where I haven't been all gung-ho to get us started.
I am not going to go into too much detail here, simply because it is almost 9:30 and I have to get up kinda earlyish tomorrow, but I will say this....If you are doing what God has called you to do, than you can bank on the fact that the enemy will pull out all the stops to destroy it, or you.
I am recognizing a bunch of his rotten lies, lately, yet I will confess, I have a little fear going back into a place where he LOVES to nail me. Not a huge deal, but if you think about it on Tuesday, say a little prayer for me and the Crew. Thanks! <3
I seriously cannot believe it is already September! Wow, how time flies! I love the Fall and the Spring equally. What are your favorite seasons of the year?
OH YEAH!! Are any of y'all planning to go to the Siesta Fiesta with Beth Moore next August? Laugh if you will, but I am seriously wanting to go, so if any of you are thinking about it, let me know...wouldn't that be the COOLEST thing for all of us to get together to hang out and worship?!

I've been wondering where you've been. We start back tomorrow too and I always think I'm not ready. But the first week is always the hardest. If I jump in with both feet, then It's usually not as bad as I thought.

Praying for you tomorrow.

That would be cool to meet up at the Beth Moore thing. We are planning a meet with Cindy (stillhisgirl) and Emily (thelearningneverstops) and me (and maybe a few others) sometime in January, maybe Vegas cuz it's cheap to fly there.

We're starting up tomorrow too, with a number of changes coming this year. We'll see how it goes.

Karen said...

Praying that God gives you the grace, the joy and prepares you for Schooling! Have missed your visits.

Cindy said...

We're starting up this morning, too. I'll pray for you!! :) Love being in this together. ;) It would be so fun to meet up with Bethie! I'm going to see her this weekend in Nashville at Deeper Still.

Emme and I start school tomorrow. Looking forward to it.

What you said about the enemy doing anything to keep you away from where you are supposed to be -- very meaningful to me at this moment. And oh so true.

Hi Gayle

I'm not even starting until next week. I can't seem to wrap my head around everything yet.

I hope that your school year is off to a good start!

The Siesta Fiesta sounds too good! Unfortunately I think it will only remain a dream for me...But I know the Dream Giver. Hmmm, maybe there's a possibility!

ya know....I'm just now reading this on Wednesday evening. I sure would love a status report on how God came through for you yesterday.

It seems like when we testify of His goodness....things sure get a lot clearer...huh?

How did school go this week. I will pray for you. Please do the same for me if you will as I find homeschool can totally undo me if I let it- if I don't stay focused on God that is.

Hi Gayle!! I am so glad I am not the only one who's been scarce. I haven't been able to blog from work anymore so i don't get to visit and read anymore. i will try to pop round soon as possible.
