About Rest for the Weary

I hope you will find this little spot a place of rest and refreshment for your soul. My intention is to build up women in the trenches of homeschooling. This includes veterans who are burned out and former homeschooling moms who have decided for one reason or another to put some or all of their children in school. Thanks for stopping by. Take a deep breath of refreshment for your weary soul.

Be thankful where you are right now

Thanksgiving is upon us once again.  I can’t believe how fast this school year is slipping away!  Of course this holiday reminds us to be thankful for the many blessings we have been given especially family, faith, food, friends, jobs, and more, but in addition to those normal things to be thankful for, I want to challenge all of us to feast on the idea of being thankful for where God has us right now in our roles as mothers even if it is not where we wish to be at the moment.  Some of you may be unhappy to be homeschooling, feeling trapped and depressed about it.  Maybe you had to put your children in school for many of the reasons I have talked about before like for financial reasons.  Whatever the case may be for your family, give thanks to God.  He does tell us in everything to give thanks, and that even means the things that aren’t quite to our liking.  I think if we can thank Him for those things, even if we don’t like them and we may change them, they can become sources of grace for us and are easier to bear for the time being.  Enjoy your thanksgiving, and I look forward to sharing more when the holiday is over.
