August 1. Saw the blue moon last night before bed, but it didn’t look very blue. :-)
I could feel yesterday morning, with the change to damp, foggy weather, that it was having an effect on my ears and throat. I wish I had tried to make a fire in the wood stove to keep the chill out of the house. By evening, I was quite exhausted and went to bed early. My ears and throat got more and more sore as the night went on. I did not feel well today at all. Have been doctoring with all kinds of stuff and feel a little better this evening but still quite exhausted. Slept quite a bit today. I was thankful that I had done some cleaning yesterday morning before school.
Daddy did get me up early, and we went and hung the clothes out. It was foggy again this morning, but not as foggy as yesterday. The Lord sent sunshine after a while.
Daddy said that Mike started the section on the role of husbands for his preaching this morning, just getting through the introduction. I was trying to sleep, but it was just a fitful rest since I had to keep blowing my nose.
I did manage to get lesson plans finished this morning. I really wanted to wash my hair this afternoon, but didn’t dare with this head cold. Didn’t have time in the afternoon to do much other than prepare a chicken breast for supper. We couldn’t eat the rice and minced chicken that I cooked yesterday. The chicken was just too greasy, and it didn’t make our tummies feel too happy. Had a little time to start journal notes for Christy and Connie. Hope to finish those this evening. Sunny is here this evening grading papers.
After supper, I sorted through all the yarn and made packets of eight balls for ladies to make bilums for us to take back to the US. Am thankful that I feel somewhat better this evening.
“20He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” Romans 4:20,21
August 2. Went to bed early last night, but it seemed like such a long night. Sleep was fitful. At 5:00 a.m., I moved to the recliner. Slept most of the morning today, and another nap in the afternoon. The cold is already going down into my chest. I feel like a limp rag.
Matthew preached today on Ephesians 3:1-6, on the mystery of Christ, and that many people still do not know what that mystery is and need to be told about Christ.
David preached in the afternoon on Noah having been closed safely in the ark by God while all those who refused to believe were destroyed, making the comparison of coming destruction for all unbelievers.
I guess the only things I really accomplished today was marking grades for the lessons Sunny checked yesterday evening, finishing up journal notes for Christy and Connie, and washing my hair. Started writing C&C an e-mail this afternoon, but couldn’t think clearly. That’s when I decided it was time for another nap.
“3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
9Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.” Romans 6:3,6,9
