The Difficult Season

Apr 25th, 2017 Faith, Homeschool, Uncategorized

Tonight, as I go through tomorrow’s to-do list, a whisper keeps subtle cadence for the more prominent thoughts. Three weeks left. Just three more weeks. It repeats even when I don’t want it to, even when I don’t notice. Three weeks left. Just three more weeks.

But in truth, the unthinkable occurs every day. It just isn’t splattered across our newsfeeds. Families are destroyed. Children are abused. Women are raped. Men are murdered. The religious are persecuted. The weak are preyed upon. The innocent are imprisoned. Justice fails. Lies spread. Hatred consumes. Evil reigns.

What a year! Thankful and flabbergasted sums up how I feel about it. As 2016 winds down, I wanted to share my top posts of the year, in case you missed anything.
