The Incubation Period Is Over

It is official ~ for over 23 years I have lived in a type of cocoon, bubble, sheltered life ~ whatever you want to call it. In 1985 I left my teaching profession to stay home with our first baby. One baby led to two and then to three. Not long after the third child was born we embarked upon homeschooling. That was 15 years ago and the rest is history. Basically my life involved three areas ~ home, church, and the homeschooling group I direct. I was in a bubble, indeed.

That is until two years ago when I got a very part time job tutoring. But even then my bosses were awesome Christians and so easy to work for. So I guess you could say my "bubble-type" life continued ~ until this fall. I am still working part time but at a different place. And guess what ~ not everyone loves my Lord like I do! Yes, I did already know that ~ but when you are out in the world seeing it first hand it can be a hard pill to swallow. I have lived in an incubator of sorts ~ and now the rubber is meeting the road and it is time to truly rub shoulders with those who don’t know Jesus ~ even rub shoulders with some who don’t want to know him. We think "How could that be? How could anyone not want to know Jesus Christ?" And yet it is true more than we might realize. We are to be salt and light in this ole world. So here goes. I covet your prayers

Hi, Cathryn!
Thank you for your kind comments. So neat to have a new 'blog buddy'! We've just returned from a trip, but as soon as I recoup, I plan to read over your postings.
I like your music choices, too!
I'll be praying for you in your walk with the Lord, & for your testimony in the workplace.
Blessings, Susan
