Linda Goodnight here, marveling at God.
Remember that scripture in the Bible about putting new wine in old skins? Well, we have a rather convulted metaphor of that going on at our house. The old skins are my husband Gene and me. The new, fresh, sweet and delightful wine is Maria, a beautiful 13 year old Ukarinian child that we are adopting! The story of just how God brought Maria into our family is long, but it was clearly His doing and His will. She is revitalizing these old skins, giving us great joy, and we just couldn't be more delighted - or stunned - at what the Lord has done.
Right now, we are debating home school or a Christian school instead of the public school where I teach. Do any of you home school? Anyone attend or have their kids attend a Christian school? Both are new arenas for me, so all advice is appreciated!
