It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.I feel that I have gained confidence that by having Charlotte Mason as an anchor, I no longer feel tossed around in the tricky world of homeschool curriculum. She has provided me with a rubric for what I am looking to accomplish and how I should be accomplishing that with our children and while I may choose to stray occasionally from her recommendations, I am so thankful for her wisdom and knowledge imparted even to this day.
Wash me, and dry these bitter tears,O let my heart no further roam,'Tis Thine by vows, and hopes, and fears,Long since -- O call thy wanderer home;To that dear home, safe in Thy wounded side,Where only broken hearts their sin and shame may hide.
~John Keble, The Christian Year, 1827
Of Man's first disobedience, and the fruitOf that forbidden tree, whose mortal tasteBrought death into the World, and all our woe,With loss of Eden, till one greater ManRestore us, and regain the blissful seat,Sing, Heavenly Muse
