Maddie’s Graduation!

Dear Maddie,
We chose to homeschool you and your brothers and sisters because we always wanted you to have a love of learning. We hope we gave you the tools you will need to continue to learn and grow. The one thing we couldn’t give you is our faith in Christ. We have been able to share ours with you, but yours is something that is inside you that you need to make your own. 2Timothy 3: 15-16 says “and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable to teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness.”
Many years ago we jokingly determined our homeschool graduation requirements. They were to master homophones such as to, too and two and there, they’re and their and count back change without the use of a cash register or calculator. You have met and exceeded these. We are proud of all your accomplishments and we know that God has great things in store for your future.
From here your decisions will guide your future. Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and he will make your paths straight.” It is our prayer that you choose to follow God in all circumstances. You have the opportunity to use your determination to achieve many things. Not everything will be what you had wished for, but remember that life is 10% circumstances and 90% what you do with them. You can choose to dwell in your circumstances or rely on God to teach and guide you to something immensely better than you could have ever thought.
This is our blessing and wish for you!
Love, Mom and Dad
