Newfound joy

Today was probably one of the happiest days of my life - I was sitting on the couch awhile ago and I suddenly realized I had my happiness back - the peace and joy that Christ promises and I have it again! I was recalling my day - I have a GREAT best friend (Thanks, Julie!). I went on a lunch date (Thanks, John!). I had time to read my Bible today (Thanks, God!) and my kids came home and were so excited to tell me about their day at school. What a beautiful, sunny, awesome day!

Well, after much praying and talking to John and a friend, I have decided not to take the biology class at Hawkeye. I went online and looked at info about the textbook I had purchased. The entire course is described as: "The book covers four major topics–cells, genetics, evolution/diversity, and ecology–and uses evolution as an overarching theme to tie all 20 chapters together. " I have no desire to pay over $500 to take a course that centers on evolutionary theory! I feel like I need to wait and maybe take some courses the Spring semester when Jaiden is older. I will take accounting, some farm management courses and animal feeding and production. For my science credit I will take physical science - the only "science" I need to know is that God created the heavens and earth!

I also decided to hold off on school because God has brought two wonderful young men into our lives - Wyatt and Conner. They will be riding the bus home each day and staying until 7pm while their Dad works. John and I really feel that they were meant to be here with us each day. I love having kids around - besides it's more to cook for and I love feeding people. Tonight, I made dinner for 10!
