Rainy Day

We had a beautiful weekend here.  The weather was perfect for Spring.  Friday it was even almost hot!

Tim and the kids spent Saturday cleaning up the yard, freeing it from winter debris such as branches, twigs, looks great and in a few weeks it will be time to mow again.

Yesterday, my Dad took the girls to look at a pony at a local horse rescue.  They liked him, but are going to look at him a few more times.  So we will see.

It is raining today.  I need to take Kayleigh to work.  My throat is sore and thick and my sinuses hurt.  I think overall we will have a quiet school day, doing what is necessary, but keeping it low key.  Lots of tea, lots of rest.  Sounds like the perfect remedy to whatever is trying to ail me!

Sarah, Rachel and I started watching "Pride and Prejudice" last night - the Colin Firth version.  I think we may finish that today as there will be very little outdoor activity today.

I have spent some time this last week reading online about some issues of belief and doctrine, one involving a home school Bible curriculum writer.  You can read more about that here. We must ask the Lord for Wisdom (James 1:5-8), and not depend on our own wisdom.  I have some very deep concerns over many of these issues.  I am praying that God will make clear His truth.

I am so thankful that I belong to Him.  He is good.  Praying for the current events in World History as well.  Japan's earthquake and tsunami, which affected the U.S. and other countries on the Pacific Rim - the Middle East, especially Libya.  So much to pray for, gratefully we can take it all to the Lord.  He holds it all in His hands.

Well, that is a lot of pondering on this rainy day.  Time to get myself moving. Have a great day!
