Weaver Volume 3 .............
Well I know summer vacation has just begun but I just had to crack open Volume 3 to get a sneak peak to see what we have to look forward to in the next school year. Weaver Volume 3 will take us back into the Old Testament where we will be studying in the books of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1Samuel with a tiny bit of new testament mixed in. We have just finished Volume 2 and I really enjoyed the study of Exodus. I really relate to Moses I have a very hard time with public speaking and it's nice to meet someone in the bible who knows what I am talking about lol! Moses encourages me to not give into fear but to know that the Lord will equip me for what ever he has called me to do. Of course I always look around to see if I can find an Aaron to speak for me *giggles* but then if there is not I think about Moses and muster up the courage to speak. Even though when I open my mouth it feels like my tongue has swelled and doubled in size and my knees start knocking and instead of butterflies it feels more like giant playground balls bouncing in my stomach lol!
I think we are going to really enjoy Volume 3 and I also can't wait to see how much we will all learn and grow with another year of Weaver. I especially enjoyed the note tucked in the introduction of the Volume 3
Many of the world's finest Oriental rugs come from little villages in the Middle East. Each rug is hand produced by a crew of men and boys under the direction of a master weaver. Since ordinarily they work from the underside of the rug to be, it frequently happens that a weaver absent mindedly makes a mistake and introduces a color that is not according to the pattern. When this occurs, the master weaver, instead of having the work pulled out to correct the sequence, will find some way to incorporate the mistake harmoniously into the overall pattern
It is a useful object lesson, for we all can learn to take unexpected difficulties and mistakes and weave them advantageously into the greater pattern of our lives. There is an inherent good in most difficulties.
