Hi Guys. I think we are due for a little end of week list. At least that’s how it feels from this end.
There is a fellow here to fix our wayward dryer, as I type. The dryer has been a complete trouper for the 7 years that we have owned it until it decided that time was irrelevant. It would start out timing a load at it’s usual number, but then for no apparent reason, it would jump up to 83 minutes when it was supposed to be done. Or 48, or 62. That was an annoyance we lived with for a few months. The real problem began when it declined to get hot on about 2 out of every 3 loads. I am not as forgiving about that.
So, we shall see what the repair man has to say about that.
Wow, that was fast, the man said he replaced some coils and see you later!
The REAL news around here this week has been that Honey has only been working 8 hours!!!!!! Hallelujah and thank you Lord!!!!!!!
That poor man has been needing a serious break from his life. We don’t know how long it will last but it is most welcome!
And just to give him something to do with his free time, Mousey’s car had a flat tire to be tended to yesterday.
We are having Caregroup tonight for the first time in a sweet forever. It will be nice to gather together!
Both of the Bible studies I have been involved in this year are coming to an end. Both studies have been about the life of Moses (I know) and both studies are tearing through Deuteronomy at a breakneck speed. Read chapters 1-26? Seriously?
I have to say that Deuteronomy is a really good book to study. The key truth is we have to know God, love God and talk about God. Sounds so simple.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9New International Version (NIV)
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a] 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
That’s it in a nutshell.
Last Saturday was our friend Miss Mattie’s husband’s funeral. I always think that a good funeral makes you wish you had known the person. It sounded like Robert Orr was such a man. A beloved Reverend, a faithful, loving husband and father of 5 fine sons. Evidence of a life well lived. He finished strong in the Lord.
I loved what one of his friends said about his love for Miss Mattie. He said she was “the cream in his coffee”. Precious.
Well, I need to git. No one is coming to clean this house for me.
