Happy to be Learning!

We recently rowed (Five In A Row) the book Wee Gillis and learned a bit about Scotland. I was interested to learn that the song “Auld Lang Syne” is Scottish and that the phrase means “old long since”, or “long ago”. The words were written by Robert Burns, Scotland’s most famous poet. Then watching the news the other night a reporter was asking people on the street what “Auld Lang Syne” meant and of course no one knew so they went to a music professor to find the answer. All the while I am telling my husband that the boys and I just learned this. I was so happy to be reminded that we really are learning, even though some days I feel as if we aren’t making much progress. We get back to routine tomorrow and I look forward to more of a "normal" schedule. May we all remember the "days of long ago" and learn from them.

 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse on the work of Your hands. Psalm 143:5

Happy New Year, friend! I love the closing scene in "It's a Wonderful Life" as the Baileys are encircled by their friends singing "Auld Lang Syne." :) I'm glad that your heart has been reminded of the learning and the growing that's taking place in your home. What a sweet encouragement as the new year begins!

I'm praying for you and your loved ones as this new year begins, asking that God uses this year to make you even more like Him.
