Wednesday Words of Encouragement: Sometimes…..


Sometimes I wonder if my efforts will count

Sometimes my day starts and I wish it hadn’t

Sometimes I feel way down low in the dumps

Sometimes I am totally overwhelmed at the thought of 14 more years of homeschooling – TO GO!

Sometimes I feel like I don’t have enough LOVE in me for my family

Sometimes I wish I can start over and get new orders of responsibility

Sometimes I can’t get my essential oils on me quick enough to get me started in my day

Sometimes I believe I’m doing okay and everyone will make it just fine

Sometimes I really believe that I am *dooming* my children

Sometimes I believe I just don’t *cut it* for the job

Sometimes I wish I could just sit still and think

Sometimes I just *hate* clothes shopping for my children

Sometimes I think I am the worse example of a house keeper/homeschooler Mom my girls can ever have

Sometimes my witness as a Christian just isn’t as bright as I’d like before my children

Sometimes I believe the words of the enemy about me *not measuring up*

Sometimes I feel not smart enough to even *teach* my children

Sometimes I put more trust in essential oils ability then in God’s ability to do for me

Sometimes I think I’m crazy to attempt getting my children involved in activities only to WEAR ME OUT

Sometimes I prefer isolation to avoid homeschooling drama in the homeschooling community

Sometimes I wish I had others to pour my heart out to

Sometimes I run the opposite way of homeschoolers because…….

Sometimes I wish I could start all over from Kindergarten with my oldest child

Sometimes I wish I didn’t have to get up, just sleep all my room…alone

Sometimes I get a little tickle in my tummy when my four year old finally catches the difference between a *b* and a *d*

Sometimes I can’t help but smile when I see my children finally grasp a concept they’ve been working on for a while

Sometimes I look forward to starting a new week to homeschool *rightly* this time

Sometimes a gush of joy pitter patters all over my heart when I hear my children quote God’s Word that they learned at home

Sometimes a sense of contentment reaches my heart when I see my children’s mastery in various courses

Sometimes finding new homeschooling friends is worth the wait

Sometimes I feel on top of the world with great success

Sometimes I can’t get enough of hanging with other homeschoolers

Sometimes I don’t have to measure up……but just *do* and *be*

Sometimes I shake my head in amazement when the directions given to my children are followed the first time given

Sometimes I gloat just a little when my entire house is clean

Sometimes I do the same thing (gloat) when a delicious, hot dinner is on the table

Sometimes I do it even more (gloat) when I’ve mustered up the *I can do it attitude* and go clothes shopping for my children

Sometimes I get so sad when I realize that my homeschooling years will soon come to an end

Sometimes I wonder what life will be like not to be homeschooling or have my children around ALL. DAY. LONG.

Sometimes I am so full of love that I feel I will burst

Sometimes I am overwhelmed at all the Lord has called me to in this season of my life

Sometimes I wonder if God ever shakes His head at me

Sometimes I still myself to hear the Lord say, “Well done. Keep Going.”

Sometimes I enjoy being me

Sometimes I never forget that God is enough and sufficient

Sometimes I get sheer delight when I can find a spot to sit and be still in my mind, my body and my emotions

Sometimes I enjoy doing what I’m called to do

Sometimes, sometimes is good enough

Sometimes I grasp the understanding of everything being in it’s own season

  1. Yep…that pretty much says it all Angela. It’s just good to know that I’m not the only one who has those thoughts going through my head. Thanks for sharing!!
