2 Yrs. I’ve Been At This…

…Yep, today marks 2 yrs. of blogging…Can you believe it?! When I think of my “blogoversary,” I automatically think about homeschooling too (this also makes over 3 yrs. that I’ve been homeschooling). You see, blogging and homeschooling have been intertwined for me. While I’ve been homeschooling, blogging has been a source of comfort & solace for me. It’s been an outlet and a way to help keep me feeling connected with the outside world.

Today reminds me of all the Lord has brought me through, all He has taught me, and how very much He has blessed my family and I. I am so thankful to God for allowing me this opportunity to home-school and to share it with others. I’m also very grateful for all the wonderful people I have met through this experience…so many followers of Christ and homeschooling moms, who have encouraged me along this journey.

S-O-O-O many times I’ve wanted to quit. So many times I’ve started to quit. Yes, countless times, I’ve almost given up…on blogging, homeschooling, cooking, cleaning…You name it.

I’m glad I didn’t. )

I appreciate all of you who have helped me to “hang in there.” Thanks for all your thoughtful words and prayers. You know who you are…and God knows. I pray that I can pass on to others what you have shown me…God’s love, strength, and courage.

May God bless you all!

“…Whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ–the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.–Philippians 3:7-14

More Cute and Cuddly On My Blogoversary

 Yep, it sure is hard to believe, but today is my 1 year blogoversary! Yes, indeed, I have been at this “blogging thing” for 365 days now! This Daily Provision site has certainly gone through some changes over the past year, but the main message has stayed the same.  God has continued to provide for my family each and every day, and I can’t thank and praise Him enough!

Once again I would also like to thank all of you who blog, who read my blog, and who leave comments, etc. This has been quite a year, and I am looking forward to many more!

You know how much I love the cute and cuddly, so to commemorate this special day, I give you more cuddly blessings:

**I really like this first photo above. Look at how two of the little pups seem to be trying to push this sweet baby back up, while the other pup oversees and directs the “mission!”
