Today's word is Ready.
Ready... oh man I DO NOT feel ready.
Today is the first day of our homeschool group co-op days and I don't feed ready.
Yes, I have a lesson.
I don't FEEL ready.
I always get like this.
I have a plan, an idea I want to teach and then I just can't find the time to prepare for it properly.
I do it the night before.
And yes, that's not so good eh?
It's great when I'm doing rabbits right? When I teach the kids what I know about rabbits, that's easy peasy as I can live and breathe talking rabbits, but this time round the boys wanted me to teach them survival skills.
Yeah.. me. Teaching survival skills.
ACK! What was I THINKING?????
But you know what.. I ready last night that that youth ages 9-12 are most apt to get lost.
They think they know what they are doing and suddenly the trail is gone, or they can't see the campsite for looking hard, and they freak out and suddenly they are lost.
So teaching THIS age group survival skills... even though most are town raised and don't get out in the bush, it's still important because you know what.. things happen in life, things that it's good to be prepared for.
So I'll do what I can to train them up... even though I'm feeling totally unprepared for this.
Let's be ready for the unexpected shall we?
Oh..and that makes me think.... we Christians we need to be ready too. We're told in the scriptures that Christ will return like a thief in the night, so to BE ready.
Are you ready for him? I know I"m trying to be but like with so many things I feel totally unprepared.... I need to work on that too. How about you?
Let's get ready!
