    Planning with an Open Hand

    July 11, 2014 by Brandy Vencel
    Today’s installment in the Planning with the Scholé Sisters series is all about accepting our own limitations.
    Here’s a taste from the post, by Sarah:

    There is no foolproof way to homeschool, and though we may try to delude ourselves into thinking otherwise, we aren’t in control. {Thank goodness!}

    I have a tendency to live in my ideals. I picture our ideal day, week, or term, and then I feel chronically disappointed because it never becomes my reality. I’m tight-fisted. I cling ruthlessly to my own vision and fail to recognize that the beauty is in the muddle.

    What it really boils down to is a lack of humility and a failure to see that God is glorified even when the day looks nothing like it did when I mapped it out on paper. I’m so intent on having things go my way that I don’t leave room for Him to turn the whole thing on its head and do with it what He wills.

    How do we open our fist? How do we teach from rest, willing to receive anything He hands us?

    Head on over to Amongst Lovely Things to read the rest.
