Truth:

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. —Genesis 1:1

For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world…—Romans 1:20

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful…—I Corinthians 13:4,5

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways! —Romans 11:33

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. —Ephesians 2:8,9

{ Deism, Drones & Death: Musings of a Homeschooling Mom. }

What I am learning this week:

  • When you plan a big party, remember to double-check to see if your mother-in-law’s invitation got sent.  (I am in the process of making this right.)

 

  • Little people listen more than we realize. When I asked my children today during American History, “What do you remember about Deism?” I didn’t expect eight-year-old Gianny to be the one itching to answer: “It’s the belief that God set the world in order and then went away until judgment.”

 

  • Drones are cool and come in two main styles: quadracopter and hexacopter. People who get to review drones online are very cool.  People that blow things up using household materials are possibly even cooler. And, I was just informed that the King of Random just flew a drone online for the first time.  That’s cool colliding with awesome. (This information was generously handed to me by my 13-year-old, who offered me the pleasure of watching a 7 minute drone video. I am a blank slate when it comes to knowledge of drones, so I learned a lot.)

 

  • Gardens eventually die. Looking out the window this morning, I saw the bittersweet view of a frosty garden.  I mourned my basil and zinnias for about five seconds and then was grateful I wouldn’t have to battle the tomato slugs anymore. I gathered what I could. Photos attached.

 

  • The last peach in the bowl is always the most precious and sought after.  I could divide it into 12 tiny slices….or just eat it myself after everyone is in bed. 🙂

I will miss the bright beauty of the zinnias.

{ Introvert Hangover }

Last night’s alcohol-free party was memorable, wonderful, and intensely draining.

When the last guests left, I was upright — but zombie-like.

 

This morning, I rolled out of bed with a dull headache.

 

My groggy brain started reviewing every conversation from the night before.

Our dear friend had washed the dishes, but pieces of the party peeked out from every corner.

I walked around dazed…but happy that there were 2 boxes of Pumpkin Spiced Cheerios to serve for a fast breakfast.
The phrase “Introvert Hangover” popped into my mind and I was amazed that there is such a thing.
…Now it’s mid-afternoon and the sun is shining. Everyone is helping.
Party baubles are getting packed away and the review tapes in my head are winding down.
Coffee serving #2 is nourishing my nerves.
I feel a sense of accomplishment and a waning headache.
I think, by the end of the day, I will spring back to normal.
