I made this card, just because I bought the cute little monkey. Today, I feel like I'm surrounded by the jungle just like this monkey. I'm thinking about homeschooling my son because I think he needs special attention that the school doesn't have time to give him. He is very smart, but he's struggling to turn in things on time. I'm frustrated-- just frustrated. Frustrated with him, frustrated with the teacher, frustrated with myself. Frustrated because he is in an excellent school and is very intelligent so there shouldn't be a problem, right? Frustrated because I'm doing whatever I can from here and we still can't figure out what to do differently. I'm sooo frustrated. Just frustrated. Homeschooling could solve one problem for him, but may create many others. I need the wisdom on how to handle it all. I need a good synonym for the word frustrated.
For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
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.
