Woe unto she who begins the homeschool day by having all her students memorize “Rejoice always; in all circumstances give thanks” (I Thes. 5:16). For undoubtedly, the washing machine will break, her toddler will throw a tantrum, and a check will bounce, all within the first ten minutes of the day. Can she rejoice through the trials? Woe unto she who ever-too-hastily chooses a Bible verse for the day!
