I have been sick since Sunday. Yuck. When something comes into the house, everyone shares. LOL I am doing ok. My stomach muscles and my ribs hurt. Not surprizing after getting sick as much as I did.
Bri is taking one of her friends to AWANA tonight. It is cookies and friends night. She is so excited. I am glad she has found a pal. One of her classmates from last year came back and is in her class again. So, I am glad.
I am still working on Christmas gifts. Also a shawl for someone.
Here is my weekly Journal post:
This week’s Homekeeper’s Journal is all about Long-suffering ….
God has worked in my life regarding patience and long-suffering in these ways ………… Seeing people that are way worse off than we are. I have a roof over our heads and a loving hubby and beautiful daughter.
The hardest part of showing long-suffering is …………. when some one is a jerk just because they can or they just like to be and you know that they are laughing at you.
The most rewarding part of showing long-suffering is ……….. The reward is very sweet. Much better than you can ever guess.
The one kind situation that I have the most trouble showing long-suffering in is ……… when someone is hurting me on purpose. Just being hateful.
I see how kindness goes hand in hand with long-suffering because ………. that is the way that you should be.
I want others to show long-suffering to me when ……… I have hurt feelings and shut people out.
God shows long-suffering to me in these ways ………..Good things come to those who wait and are patient.
Ephesians 4:1-4 says ….. Be patient and bear one another with love. Keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
This week I will begin to ask God to ……….. Help me be more patient. Even when things are hard, help me to do things with love.
Have a wonderful day.
