A new school year has been on the hearts and minds of many families these past few weeks.  Some of us have little ones going off to school, maybe for the first time. Some of us are settling down to start our homeschool routine with our children. And there are those of us (me included) who are sending our “kids” off to college. All of these situations call for wisdom to overcome the challenges and insecurities that arise for both students and parents. But we as Christians have the knowledge that God is watching over our children and guiding our decisions as parents.  He holds our future in His hands. Armed with His word, may the upcoming school year be one of great learning  and peace for students, parents, and of course the teachers!

For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.  Proverbs 2:10



Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I trust your commands. Psalm 119:66



Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will your future be. Job 8:7





let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance Proverbs 1:5

This time of the year is filled with many mixed emotions. Excitement at new beginnings and trepidation at those same new beginnings.
Great post, Sheila!

Loved your color coded post Sheila, very cool and very up lifting. :) I have grands in public school and home schooled and teachers in my family as well, so mainly I just pray and support them in any way I can.

Sweet reminder, Shiela, of how God loves the children and protects them as only He can - so much better than we ever could. We cannot be with them 24/7 but He can.

I am thankful that He has done/is doing such a wonderful job protecting my boys and now I am trusting Him with my grandchildren as well.

Very good post -- This is the first year I don't have a child returning to public school. Feels strange!

Thank you for your post Sheila. It's actually the middle of the school year here in the southern hemisphere, but we still need wisdom, no matter which stage of the schoo year we are facing. :)
