Easy Meatball Sliders

So I have been trying to find easy and delicious lunches and meals for my family.  There is something about Summer that makes me feel this way.  I think it might be it's a new season so lets try new meals?  So while in the kitchen I decided to throw this together.






I heated up some frozen meatballs, then added some leftover spaghetti sauce, topped with mozzarella cheese and placed on a whole wheat dinner roll. 



It was super easy, the kids loved it and so did I.

Be a candle-lighter for your family's dark places

Sometimes we feel hopeless, like the old saying "somethings will never change".  Well I was reminded today after reading this, no matter what our "something"is God always has our back.  He is our Hope in every circumstance.  Not only is our Hope but He will give us Peace in the midst of every situation we will ever go through.  So whatever your "something" is give it to Him, lay it down and accept His Hope and Peace in return.  Take a moment to read the link below written by Sally Clarkson, you will be glad you did!

Homeschooling

      So with much prayer and much time talking with my husband we have decided to "Homeschool" this year.  This has been a long desire as well as my children for many years but just didn't feel it was something I could do.  Thoughts of  can I do this, will I mess them up and then the one everyone complains about... they will be so anti-social and have no communication with other children.  I believe with any desire you first have to pray about it, then wait.  I know with Gods Will anything is possible.  We all have seasons in our lives and we believe for this season it's what is best for our family.  I have really struggled more than anything with the thoughts of...  what will people think, what criticism will I receive to my face and behind my back?  I was then reminded today from my sister.... "What people think of me is none of my business, but what God thinks of me is everything" That was like a breath of fresh air, like a load was lifted off my shoulders.  How true?  I know not everyone is going to agree with my decision and that's ok.  At the end of this life I,  nor will my children have to answer for what other peoples thoughts or opinions of us are.  I am excited and both nervous as we embark on this new journey in our lives.  After Cory graduating I have realize we truly only have them here in our home for a very short time.  It is my desire to pour into them as must as I can while they are here.  Teach them and train them the life skills we feel are important.

  Proverbs 22:6
Train your child in the way he should go: and when he is old,  he will not depart from it.

Grace

  
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS

Be especially diligent to be aware of opportunities that arise to cause you to be insecure or feel powerless.  Any place of unworthiness in you will cause you to vacillate between My acceptance and condemnation.  I have not rejected nor abandoned you.  You are Mine, and I am your place of strength and security, says the Lord.  Yield to My mercy and grace, which is sufficient for any situation. 

2 Corinthians 12:9a  And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."

      I am in the middle of making some education decisions for our family.  I have struggled with "am I good enough" "what will others think"??
As my husband and I were talking last night he reassured me that I am able to do anything I put my mind to. Then this morning I read this devotional and was reminded God will ALWAYS give me strength and grace to do what I need to do.  Especially when I pray and seek HIm first.  
His strength is made perfect in my weakness!  So know, no matter what you are facing...He is always there to lead, guide and direct us, all we have to do is just stop and pray and be willing to hear His voice and just admit we can't do it but through Him we can do ANYTHING!!!
