I think we found our new school!!!!!! We went for an interview yesterday and Brian and I both felt a peace while we were there talking to the principal. The truths he spoke to us from God's word settled over us like cascades of water in a river... it was truly that obvious.
We left the school and just looked at each other, smiled. God has answered our prayers. We didn't feel the need to go visit the 3rd school on the list. This is The One.
A wise friend of mine told me it would be this way.. when we were in the right place, having had prayed about it and given this to God, who loves Jonathan even more then we do... then we would know. And you know what? We knew.
Thank you, Lord, for once again, taking care of us. We are excited again, about the future. God is so good!
Jonathan finished 1st grade yesterday. He did so well... Made high honor roll all year, all straight A's.. we are so proud of him. We love his school so much. We have been sending him to a Christian school for the past 2 years and haven't once regretted the extra money for tuition. We have been blessed more then we can ask or imagine with the teachers he's had the past 2 years, for Kindergarten and 1st grade.
We found out 2 weeks ago that his school is closing. :( We're so heartbroken. We trust that God knows the future. We know that He is the author of our lives. And we believe that He loves Jonathan more then even we do. We are uncertain about what to do, and right now our immediate future is unsettled for our little guy.
Yesterday was a hard day, saying goodbye to friends and teachers and people we've come to love. Sometimes life really stinks. But we're trying to remember that He is in control. And He loves us. And it's all going to be ok. I will update when we find a school for Jonathan. In the meantime I'd appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
