A Little Update
Well, I don’t really have much to update on these days. I’m not doing too great on my scripture memory. I definately don’t have the entire first chapter of James memorized but I’m working on it. Anything I memorize will be more than I did have! This week in the high school curriculum they are talking about “the fall” and man sinning. One of the points they made was that when Eve was tempted she did not know God’s word accurately (Did God say you couldn’t eat from any tree?) and Satan used that to deceive her. But that when Jesus was tempted in the desert he knew God’s word accurately and used it correctly and was able to resist temptation. That was really challenging to me. How can I know what God wants me to do and resist temptation if I don’t know His word? Maybe that will be a challenge to you too.
This weekend my Mom came up to visit. We had a good time eating out and just hanging out at the house. She couldn’t believe how clean our house was – but the secret is that it is so uncomfortable for me to bend over and pick stuff up off the floor that I’ve been really good about cleaning up after myself (like hanging up clothes or putting them in the basket). On Sunday we went to church but as soon as the service was about to start the power went out! It was a little chaotic. We were suppose to have a leaders lunch meeting after church so it got moved up earlier and we had to meet at Bar-B-Cutie instead of the church. Bill and my mom went to Cracker Barrel.
Well, I guess I had more to talk about than I thought!
