Life can be so confusing...

who knew that having children could complicate your life so much (haha...what an understatement!) I cannot believe that they girls are growing up so fast! Avery will be celebrating her 2nd birthday next Monday and then a month later Brenly will be celebrating her 5th! YIKES! They are getting so big, so fast! With Brenly's fifth birthday comes the idea that within less than 6 months, Brenly will be starting Kindergarten!! It makes me sick just thinking about the idea..but know that this is the normal progression of life! With us living where we do (out in the boondocks!) we have really had to contemplate where she will start school-- Where will she go, how will she get there (logistics of it all), will they have before/after school care, etc. We have been praying like crazy that God would show up let us know where she should be! We have also been praying that God would tell us where we need to live...do we stay in Bolivar, do we need to move to Middle Tennesse, when will positions for Ray come open? For as long as Ray and I have been married...our prayer has always been that we would go whereever God wanted us to, but that He would need to be very specific with letting us know! Here recently we have come to a crossroads as far as out lives are concerned and we have been anxiously awaiting to hear from God! We truly believe that at this point in our lives we are going to stay put (at least for a little while longer...it may change in a year or so) and we believe we are going to try to put Brenly in Macon Road Baptist School! Now, I have NO clue how God will provide the extra money that it takes to put her in a private school...but we believe that God is the ultimate provider and that if we trust Him in this decision, that once again He will provide the necessary means to accomplish this goal! We will continue to pray for clarity about God's will and how we can adjust our lives to match that! We pray that God gives us peace about what is to come...and pray that He will shout it from the mountain tops where we shall go from here!

I have several old friends that went to MRBS and I even think I still know a teacher there. Sounds like a great plan Kim!

Kim, I'm glad God has given you some clarity and I hope he continues to shout it out and ensure this is the right plan for you! I think it's awesome that you're so open to going wherever God wants to take you, which is the hardest place to get to for some people. He'll continue to guide you and provide for you! My mom went to MRB! :)
