Today is the 69th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the devotion told us again of the sneak attack by the Japanese. Just before the attack Japanese officials had been at Washington discussing peace. Then it transitioned into talking about Satan specializing in sneak attacks. That’s why Christians in God’s army we need to be ready and on constant vigil for these attacks. Those 2,403 victims of Pearl Harbor had no warning of the attack. But we have no excuses. So be ready because Satan is a master liar and twists God’s words to confuse us. Sometimes he tempts us BIG time, but often he is content to have us just become bored with our faith. I have to be completely honest here…Satan is working hard in my heart because that is where I am…bored. So this devotion hit me hard and put me on guard.
We became so frustrated with the math lesson today that we wanted to throw things at the computer. How does Algebra sneak into every other lesson? Today we had to add, subtract, multiple, and divide integers with algebraic expressions too. Can it get anymore complicated?
The History Channel had a show on at lunch all about Pearl Harbor. So I let JD watch it and we did a little more research on the internet and called it social studies.
I’m starting a different approach with getting JD to create a story. He started telling me about a fictional island that he wanted to create. So I had him draw it out. It’s a three island together in a chain. He’s got an army island, a forest island, and one island is the capital. I called that language arts and plan to get him to tell me a story from his picture.
JD read the Star Wars book for thirty minutes today and we called it a day. Whew…
