An Encouraging Word

Somebody needs to hear this today:

"We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers.  We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ."  1 Thessalonians 1:2-3

The astonishing fact that we were prayed for in detail by Paul, and others, so long ago gives me so much comfort and peace today.  I pray it does the same for all who read this.  

This homeschooling journey can be tough.  I know ours has certainly had its bumps in the road and some obstacles seem impossible to pass.  Our hope is in the Lord, as written in the Scriptures.  I'm overwhelmed with thanksgiving for knowing that Jesus and his disciples prayed for me!  Little me; a daughter, sister, wife, and mother of two girls.  They prayed for my work, my labor, and my endurance.  Thank you, Jesus!  No one knows our needs more than our Creator.  And He knew them before we knew them ourselves.
