School is back in session!

Off goes my middle school to 7th grade!!!!

Off goes my 3rd grade son to . . . my office.

This fall, I'm embarking on a journey that I NEVER thought I would take.

I have switched majors from SAHM, while the kids are in school all day, to SAHM and teacher. At home. (So, SAHT?)

This is new season beyond the typical Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter. I've experienced THOSE seasons. This one? I have no idea what awaits me. As in . . . no history to recall. No memories for comfort. No past course to elicit confidence.

I have a map. That is all.

I don't know what I'll encounter as I follow the road. I don't know when we'll need to hit a rest stop. I have no idea what obstacles may impede our direction.

For the first time in a while, I am completely blind heading in.

Interesting. Remember Abraham?

Genesis 12:1 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

To a land I WILL SHOW YOU. Not, to a land I HAVE shown you. (Shoot, that man didn't even have a map. I should be grateful!)

And thus, my new semester begins.
