Another thing I was always convinced was that we'd be able to put our kids in private school if I just a good paying job. In 2003 we lived in California and my boss pitched the idea of moving back to Florida. Yippee I said, I'll be able to put my future kids in school at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale!! Then I had kids and I finally looked at the tuition. Maybe if I stopped paying tithe I could afford it? No, I can't do that. Is the tuition really up to 10K per year by high school??? Panic, we already have two kids, shouldn't we use that money to pay down our mortgage?
Then I start wondering what kind of people can afford to put their kids in that school. Very rich people I assume, or people not paying tithe.
How can I, a Director making a very decent salary not be able to afford to send my kids to a private school?
I struggle with this.
I read about children in Nepal who do not have enough food to eat and I wonder how I can even consider paying exorbant prices for education when so many are hungry in the world.
I want to leave Florida and go back to the little town I grew up in, put my kids in the very cheap $1,500 per year school I grew up in (less if you volunteer).
I tell myself, be patient, stop judging random strangers, Charlotte is almost 3, you still have 2 years left before she's in school. Wait on the Lord.
Psa. 27:14 Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.
