September 14. The Lord gave us a sunny and warm day today. There were still strong winds so I made sure I put my hat on when I went out after dinner to help bring in the clothes. But the winds, as well as the sun, are nice for drying clothes so we were thankful for them both.
Mike was in charge of lotu this morning. He had finished his series on God’s love and started today on the love that God has given within the hearts of his children.
After lotu, Daddy had David start the generator for him so we could wash clothes. His back is still hurting quite badly so it looks like it is probably not a kidney problem or the antibiotic should have started helping by now. There was nobody around to help refill the machine for the rinse, however, so he had to lift the buckets himself. He said it wasn’t much of a problem though as long as he lifted properly. He took ibuprofen later and was feeling a bit better this afternoon. So he must have put his back out somehow.
The weather was nice when we hung the clothes out, and it was good to get out for a change. The winds didn’t come up until later.
After hanging out clothes, I got lesson plans done for this coming week. Wasn’t sure how many days to plan for so just made four days of plans. The youth aren’t sure yet what day they will be leaving for youth camp, and Monday is a national holiday so there is no school that day. So it won’t be more than four, but could be less.
Used the leftover spaghetti sauce and made a small pizza for our dinner. There was only enough cheese for half of the pizza so I put that on Daddy’s half.
Daddy started getting the clothes down while I cleaned up the kitchen. Then I helped finish getting in the clothes. We got the shirts and things hung up and then got ready for nap.
After nap, Neomi’s mother was here. I guess she had been here for a while, waiting for us to get up from nap. She was sitting in the corner of the porch where she usually sits and waits when we are sleeping. She brought a couple hands of bananas and wanted some Maggi (noodles) and matches. Then she wanted me to read to her from the gospel of John.
After she left, I had a snack and then cleaned the bathroom. Worked on some lessons in the computer and got the pictures put in that I took yesterday; then swept the office and kitchen floors before getting supper on.
“10According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” I Corinthians 3:10,11
