Morning Musing Over Coffee - The Adventure of Discovery

The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
~ Robert Maynard Hutchins

I love learning. There is so much to learn, a world of fascinating wonders just waiting for me to discover them. I love the moment when something "clicks" for me and I understand something that was once a complete mystery.  And I love the sense of awe when I discover something that I know is fact but that I can hardly comprehend.

The challenge for me is to share that love of learning, to inspire in my children a sense of excitement for the adventure of discovery. As we study cell structure, Egyptian history, prime factors, and as we discuss the awesomeness of God and his grace and love for us. As we try new recipes, teach the dogs new tricks, and watch our garden grow and produce - or not. As we learn gentle speech and self control and understanding of another's point of view. As we travel this journey of learning together I hope my children injoy it as much as I do.

The whole earth if filled with awe at Your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy. Psalm 65:8

  1. Ahh...finally! I have tried making a comment for half an hour now:

    Learning is definitely a life-long process, and it is somehow life-fulfilling to know that there is always something new to learn.
