I came across the latest issue of the PG magazine as I was waiting for someone and took it home to read. What grabbed my attention was a yellow school bus with the caption “Are They Safe?” above it. Of course my mind went directly to homeschooling. I didn’t think of the possibility of the article being about the possible dangers kids face either crossing the street to board the school bus or awaiting the school bus. Of course these are serious issues but what about when they board that bus. What possible dangers are lurking in the shadows of an average school day?
I know when I was younger I didn’t share with my parents even half of what went on behind those close doors let alone what went on on the school bus. It was as though the moment you got off the bus you were free, yet the memories of the day haunted you even in your place of safety – home. When I was a teenager as far as my parents were concern I was a troubled teen. They didn’t understand what happened to their little girl who now was no longer little and full of much anger. Years of pain had caused a deep scar on my heart. The old saying time heals all wounds is not true for if it was I would have been healed by the age of 18 after 13 years of pain.
There’s so much more danger once your child boards the bus, outside of the possible dangers to and from the bus. Bullying, drugs, school violence, false teaching, peer pressure, etc…. My suggestion to you is fire the bus driver, let go of the traditional idea of sending them to school. Believe me when I say the school you grew up in is nothing like what the young people face now. With each passing generation it gets more and more twisted.
Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) –
Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.
Let us return back to the Lord and his path for our children. Abandon the idea of this american icon! The training set up by the institutions of this day were never meant for the extaordinary children of the King!
Psalm 34:8 (KJV) – Taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
