Has this ever happened to you? You were having a perfectly normal, wonderful day until you are catching the brunt of someone's opinion. I guess some people just feel "led" to let you know that you are not doing things the way they think you should. Everyone has an opinion, and I respect that. Guess what? I have some very strong ones too! :) I just usually don't go around pointing them out...
Anyways, I am well aware of the fact that I am not dumb. I was at the top of my graduating class. I earned several scholarships from having the highest SAT test score. I do realize that I am capable of enrolling into college & finishing a major money making degree. I choose not to. I am blessed to be an American & make my own decisions.
Instead, I choose to stay home with my children (night & day). I choose to home school. I choose to teach them with all of my heart to love God. I choose to be here. I want this! I believe the Lord honors & blesses our home for following His ways. We have never done without.
Some consider this as living below my God given intelligence, maybe even 2nd class. Not me! I consider this an honor. I don't want anyone else raising my children. I am thankful for the resources & ability to teach them. I love being with them! Motherhood is not a task I take lightly. I do desire to give it my best! Thank you Lord for the strength & courage you give me to stand firm & not back up to popular belief.
