This year, lets start a Bible study!!! I am so excited. If we try to have it every day then maybe this will keep me on the blog every day. Lets start with Genesis 1, and read a chapter each day. I have a Revised Standard Version Bible, so that is where my I will be posting a Bible verse each day from. Who’s in??? You can post a comment about the verse that I have posted or post a verse of your own, or post about anything. It started on 1/1/15 if you want to go back and start from the beginning.
“So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all his work which he had done in creation.” Genesis 2:3
This has always been a tough verse for me to follow. I love it and have a tough time with it. When I follow it, it is very refreshing. We go to church on Sunday, relax at meals together, play and catch up. But … sometimes I forget to get everything done on Saturday so that we can have Sunday off, we need to fold all of the laundry and match our outfits for the next week, get all of the cooking done for the next week, or sometimes we do once-a-month cooking and we need to do all of the housework, like vacuuming. This really sounds like a long list, but after doing this each week, it doesn’t take that long … on the weeks that we really do it. A lot of weeks we get busy, or decide to play on Saturday and don’t match the clothes or make the meals ahead, then on Sunday I realize that nothing is done and we need to do everything that day.
When we do rest on Sunday, it makes a big difference. The next week goes smoother and we are more cemented, interwoven, bonded as a family because we got to spend time together.
Are you able to rest on Sunday? How are you able to get everything done?
written 1/8/12 – My goal…again…this next week is to move the boxes in the basement from in front of the shoe shelf. Maybe the boxes will get moved, or maybe I will just write about this every week.
At Thanksgiving we had a cutting from the blackberry bush and another bush as our centerpiece. We also had a glass container of pine cones. The blackberry bush cutting has sprouted a root!
Maggie has one of her puzzles partway together. It is a cartoon of a lot of office people in their cubicles.
I think that it is only about four more months until spring.
I didn’t do any of my weekend jobs this weekend. Tonight I need to match my clothes.
Do you ever have weekends where you don’t get anything done?
2014 April’s Bible verse: “These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another, render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace, do not devise evil in your hearts against one another, and love no false oath, for all of these things I hate, says the Lord.” Zechariah 8:16,17
written 12/18/11 – Yesterday the kids also wrote their Christmas cards to everyone. They give people cards instead of presents. They make about ten to fifteen cards. This year Maggie and Beth did their cards together. One wrote Merry Christmas and Happy New Year on each paper and the other drew a picture on each one. Then they both signed their name. William made his own cards. Usually they all make their own cards.
Today we went to church. After church Maggie studied science and Beth worked on math on the computer. Tonight the girls are at church. The kids (junior high and high school) have sort of a youth group / concert.
We have been doing a lot of sorting and cleaning in the basement. It looks a lot better. Maybe over the holidays we can spend some more time sorting down there. It always feels so good to take a load to Goodwill. The basement needs to be sorted so that we don’t need to move it when we buy our next house. I don’t like to sort boxes down there because there are not enough lights. I have to get a box and take it over to the light and sort it, or take it upstairs. My new excuse is if I could sort it where it was at, I would do more.
How do you motivate yourself?
