One of our new things this year (which actually began this past summer) is Minecraft Club on Mondays.
Such a wonderful, amazing idea that a local homeschool mom came up with. The club has been meeting for over a year now, but we finally decided to check it out over the summer. D2 is HOOKED. He loves it. Minecraft Club has become his Monday motivational piece that encourages him to get up, get moving, and get things DONE… because he wants to be able to go in the afternoon.
Haha! See how I did that? If a sharp stick to the rear doesn’t work, a little digital motivation sure does.
Little did I know the blessing that would come from it. Today, this arrived in the mail, addressed to my son.
It was the result of one conversation, one meeting where God was listening. Prompting her. We only met one time. This ONE TIME at Minecraft Club.
She emailed me, and told me, “I am writing because God makes me do things sometimes… and right away- like less than one second after you said the thing about the price of the Exploration Education for D1 being too pricey…He said- “THAT KID REALLY NEEDS THAT. MAKE IT HAPPEN, ASAP.” I’m not one to sass God- not anymore, since he has worked through me over and over again and I see how it works.”
There are angels among us, ladies.
My first reaction of course was to politely decline, but I asked a trusted friend what she would do. She let me have it with both guns blazing. “Who are YOU to deny a blessing? How many times have YOU done similar things for other people? What would YOU feel if someone refused to accept something you felt the Lord wanted you to bless them with?”
Then I asked you, readers, on my Facebook page. Because the part of me that saw her logic and felt that Spirit, needed to know it wasn’t just my friend and I. Those of you whom Facebook allows to see my posts, anyway, and you all said the very same thing, with bells and lights flashing. More confirmation. And so it went. And my resolve quickly crumbled to a humbled spirit.
The Body of Christ is a living, breathing entity. Every one of us, dear homeschool Mommas, have the ability to respond and bless one another. One of my favorite kids’ movies is Robots, and my favorite line from that movie is “See a need, fill a need.” It’s been our family’s principle for the past year and a half. Step in where the Lord gives you the nudge. I am so thankful that she did!
What a blessing. I’m still in shock, but it’s a happy shock. Who’d have thought that the Lord would send us an angel at Minecraft Club??
What’s in the box? Exploration Education’s Advanced Physical Science curriculum. If you haven’t heard of this before, you should check it out. It is THE answer for my science-minded, hand’s on Autism Spectrum high schooler! He was struggling so much with a textbook based Physical Science. I will be writing more about this as the year goes on. Count on it.
