June 29. When we went to bed last night, the sky was clear, the moon bright, and many stars were twinkling. By early morning, the sky was all clouded over, and the Lord gave us another very cool, mostly cloudy day. The laundry still needed to be done, and I did hang it outside. I was thankful that there was no rain today and a good portion of the clothes got dry. The ones that didn’t get dry are hanging in the house. The fire has been going again all day. Senko cut a bit of firewood this morning, and more will have to be cut tomorrow.
All the students got 100 on their Bible test this morning — matching the numbers 1-10 with the correct one of the ten commandments — except for Esau who got 80. Then they enjoyed making paper chains as a reminder that the ten commandments are like a chain or rope to which a dog may be tied. If the chain or rope is broken in only one place, it will be no good for holding the animal. If we break only one of the ten commandments, it is the same in God’s eyes as if we had broken all of them.
In English class, they enjoyed playing a spelling game. Sosthenes came in first, Steve second, and Matthew third. The others all did well, except for Amos who had a hard time.
Esau did much better in math class today and seems to be catching on a little better to new methods of learning. Even though he is slow, it is a joy to teach him, as he seems to have a heart to learn and has a much more mature attitude than the other students.
This afternoon, I worked on lessons for next week. Daddy cut up pumpkin for me to cook for supper. It was far better than the last pumpkin we had, and I was thankful for a change from greens.
“….but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.” Hebrews 9:26 Sin cancelled! Amen!
