Okay, so i checked it out and, alas, it did not work. Just find 3 minute retreat on sadlier.com…. ;-\
WOW. dude. seriously, WOW. on so many fronts. i just don’t know where to begin. let’s start with the now, shall we? well, i love Sadlier – i use it for Religion & Vocabulary Workshop. LOVE it. there are all these little extras you can sign up for and i signed up for the 3-minute retreat, which, God willing, i was able to ’embed’ and share. i think that’s the first time i ever used that word. anywho. i did the 3 minute retreat and sometimes words can just hit right. you know? those words did. when i read the part that was actually a prayer/convo with God, part of it said, ‘thank You for sharing Your Son, Jesus with me,’ it was very strong and moving. i know. it’s a link from a website, but either way, it still got me. to consider the enormity of what God did for each of us, whether we know it, not know it, accept it, or not accept it, He STILL did it. i thought immediately about my own son, and how deeply i love him. i can’t even wrap my mind around the bigness of God’s love. i feel all-loved by Him, but to consider how much He loves Jesus, well…sigh…it’s a retreat just thinkin’ about THAT.
it was great.
first day of home school. we loved it. we had half a day, just like 7th grade sister. she read a chapter of her novel, we did math, english, and geography. even had lunch in the park. it has been a great day.
i am grateful.
