End of an Era

End of an Era

Spread the love

It’s been a busy few weeks as I’ve been sorting through 16+ years of accumulated home school materials. I’m working on getting things together for a ‘retirement yard sale’. 🙂 Now, it actually has been four years since I finished home educating my two sons all the way through high school graduation, but I finally decided to work on clearing things out.


I decided to have a yard sale so I can bless other families with the abundance of materials we’ve used. It’s been a lot of work, boxing up books, science kits, manipulatives, etc.

I’ve come across cute stories my sons wrote in early elementary as well as funny drawings. They bring back lots of memories. I’ll never regret those years I spent with my sons.

Working through all the ‘stuff’ reminds me of these verses from Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8 (HCSB).

There is an occasion for everything,
and a time for every activity under heaven:
a time to give birth and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to uproot;
a time to kill and a time to heal;
a time to tear down and a time to build;
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance;
a time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
a time to embrace and a time to avoid embracing;
a time to search and a time to count as lost;
a time to keep and a time to throw away;
a time to tear and a time to sew;
a time to be silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.

Do you have things you do that reminds you of portions of scripture?

  1. Congrats on schooling your sons. That is something I admire and am not sure I could have done. And yes, I do have scripture pop up at times throughout my day. What a blessing to know I am able to recall scripture.

    My daughter is going through that with her oldest son’s high school graduation. We go through those cycles, as Solomon told us. Praise God He never changes.
