Psalm 90:17 (NIV)

 May the favor[a] of the Lord our God rest on us;
 establish the work of our hands for us—
 yes, establish the work of our hands.

I recently started feeling a deep inner restlessness and a need to begin planning for next school year. 2015/16. Sure enough, as I stretched out in small researching steps- I discovered that now, indeed, is the time. All the co-ops are beginning to list their 2015 classes. Online learning sites are listing for next year. Everywhere I began to look that is relevant to our curriculum choices I saw the same trend. In just one month, curriculum catalogs start to go out (I think)…

It is  Time To Plan…

This is not to put a burden on anyone. This is purely for me. And it was a gracious confirmation for me that my heart was leading me correct. My unique circumstances-many grade levels, two in high school next year, many, many subjects, my state’s law, my oversight’s requirements, are the propulsion behind this strong inner direction.

It takes me time. I research. I ponder. I mull. I consider this option and that one. I price. I create comparison pricing lists. I cull. I prune. I look at charts. I map high school credits. I ponder daily schedules and work loads. I fill carts. I prune carts. I add. I drop.

I pray.

This Verse from the Living Bible is “my verse” for planning:

Proverbs 16:9

We should make plans—counting on God to direct us.

AND

Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)

The heart of man plans his way,
but the LORD establishes his steps.

AND

Proverbs 16:3

Commit your work to the LORD,
and your plans will be established.

I say again…

 May the favor[a] of the Lord our God rest on us;

establish the work of our hands for us—

 yes, establish the work of our hands.

Psalm 90:17 (NIV)

Trusting Jesus,
