March 5. Same weather pattern. No sunshine today at all.
Amos preached on Acts 5:1-11 this morning and emphasized the need to be careful not to hold back that which you have promised to give to God. That is stealing from God. Made a side reference to tithing and not robbing God of our tithes. Also emphasized the seriousness of lying.
Matthew said that, yesterday evening, he was studying the Word and thinking... He was really feeling down… Then he came to Revelation 3:8 in his reading - “behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it.” His heart was encouraged, and in the next moment, there was a knock at the door. It was a woman named Makavi. She had come to get saved. Praise the Lord!
Then this morning Max’s wife, Ahqnahse, also got saved. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
School went well today. We even finished a bit early. I was happy to go for nap a bit earlier and have a little longer nap. There was more grading to do after nap, plus putting new math lessons in three of the students’ folders and gluing paste-overs in the other seven math books. (I had done two of the math books this morning before lotu.)
Then there were things to get ready for classes tomorrow plus spaghetti to make for supper. I started heating water for the spaghetti around 4:30; but, for some reason, we did not sit down to eat until 5:45. Don’t know what took so long.
After supper, I searched for a picture of cotton because the students wanted to know what cotton was. Their social studies lesson mentioned a cotton towel carried over the shoulder of the little Indian boy when he went out with the shepherd to watch the cattle. Filed some pictures while I was looking. Finally found the picture. Did the dishes and then had my bath early before the evening gets too cold.
The men are here for Bible school this evening, and Daddy is teaching.
“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:12
