What Goes Around

How many times does what we think should happen or will happen actually does happen?

Trying to see down the tunnel of time is impossible. The best we can do is take what we know—our experiences collective and individual and work from there.

Over thirty years ago our two oldest boys were about to go into eighth and ninth grades respectively. Because of a previous discussion with our local school we were informed that there would be school programs that we probably wouldn’t want our children to attend and the teachers of our children would quietly pull our two kids out and let them sit out of the program in the library in order that our children would not be made fun of by their peers.

As you can imagine, we were scratching our heads in wonder over this happening. At that point, I was contacted by someone from a local homeschooling group wanting me to be part of the phone tree in passing information to others of the group.

There was an ensuing conversation about homeschooling when I told her I would pass on the info, but we didn’t h-school. After that conversation and much hashing and rehashing we did commit to h-schooling and thus began our journey.

And a journey it was. I have heard through the years people shake their heads and saying, Oh, I could never do homeschooling. I have to laugh and shake my head back. I didn’t ever think I couldn’t do it.

 I was fascinated by the Little House stories. Their perseverance and their freedom and independence were intriguing to me. We were told by outsiders that ‘you don’t know enough to teach your kids.’ And my optimistic reply was, “I don’t have to know everything to teach them. I have to know enough to inspire them to learn.” And we persevered.

It is amazing what you can do when you have to do it. The Lord led and we followed. In looking back down that tunnel I do wish we had been able to homeschool all of the kids all the way through school.

We didn’t know what kind of indoctrination was happening then and now…

We are hearing much since the virus began and people are complaining about schools reopening. I’m back to scratching my head. God has done what no amount of preaching has been able to do.

God is revealing firsthand what is happening from one extent to another in our schools across this nation. Yet all parents can ask is ‘when will they reopen?’

What is wrong with parents? Do we not care that our children are being brainwashed? Do we not care that our children are being dumbed down and much much worse?

I have whispered this on many occasions. Fathers and mothers we must get back to raising our own children. Especially Christian parents need to stop worrying about being two paycheck families, suck it up, and at least one of the parents needs to stay home with the children.

Christian mothers need to stop worrying about what they want and start doing what is right. Children don’t ask to be born children are a gift from God. If a single parent can raise their family on one paycheck a two-parent family should be more than competent to raise a family on one paycheck.

What we should be seeing instead of parents wondering when schools will open is parents rising up demanding to see what their children are being taught. Many parents are realizing for the first time the horrible studies their children are going through.

Parents need to demand that their children be taught Christian principles that match their own principles. Instead of allowing children to be dumbed down, instead of looking for ‘new techniques’ to teach children to learn, go back to where children were learning and teach them from there. Wake up people, I’m almost afraid it’s too late, Wake up.

Romans 13:

11  And this, knowing the season, that already it is time for you to awake out of sleep: for now is salvation nearer to us than when we first believed.

12  The night is far spent, and the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

13  Let us walk becomingly, as in the day; not in revelling and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and jealousy.

14  But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
