For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.
After our long weekend without Joe, I was really excited that he was able to get a sub on Monday. I didn't tell the kids, they were very excited when they realized he was home. We went out to eat at Cracker Barrel.
While we were eating and an elderly man, with a walker, came over to our table. He threw 2 dollar bills on the table and said it was for the 2 cutest kids in the restaurant. He said for them to buy some candy and walked away before the kids could understand what he had done.
It was really neat that the kids were able to witness someone acting in kindness to them, someone they didn't even know.
At supper, I told Joseph he should pray for the nice man who gave them the dollar. Later, Mom had a tea party with Bethany and Joseph. They both love having tea parties, Joseph doesn't mind because he gets to eat again. Joseph wanted to pray for their tea party, he prayed, "for the man wiff the dollwers."Bethany was telling someone about him and she said, "He had a walkie-thing-a-ma-doddle."
I am trying to get up before the kids. Today is my first day to get up early. I am not a morning person but I think it is important that I start getting out of bed earlier. I usually blog late at night, last night I didn't blog so I would have more incentive to get out of the bed this morning.
Over the weekend, I realized I am not a coffee drinker, I didn't feel that it helped me and it cost money. I decided to give up my plan to become a coffee addict. This morning I thought I'd try it one more time, since I was up so early. I didn't get half of my cup down before I poured a glass of water. The earlier I drink it the worse it taste and the less it affects me. I am back to being a social coffee drinker. Late at night, just the good stuff. I guess it's healthier that way.
