April 18. Went to bed early last night. Up at 6:00 this morning to make hot rice cereal for breakfast.
We finished up this week’s music lesson in Bible class this morning and then spent about a half hour practicing music. We practiced music again at the end of school after they had their science test.
After lunch, I sat at the kitchen table while Daddy brought me all the tools and ingredients that I needed for making bread. That way I didn’t have to be on my feet too long - just long enough to knead the bread and put it in the pans to rise. Then we had our nap. I didn’t sleep very well as my head was rather stuffy. Felt a cold start coming on last night.
Daddy did get through to NTM today, but they do not have a plane in the area to take Daddy to town the week after next. So he called MAF and they put him down for a flight.
After nap, there were just a few papers left to grade, plus their science test. Everyone but one got 100% today. By then the bread was ready to go in the oven, and I also put eggs on to boil so we could have egg salad for supper. In the mean time, I got things ready for school tomorrow. Practiced music for a little while and then got this month’s ministry update written before getting supper.
After supper and dishes, I took another little nap. Had my lemon soda drink; washed up; and had snack. Now it is almost 8:30.
“9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” John 15:9-11
April 19. Yesterday I started getting a sore throat again and a sinus cold. The right side of my face was pretty stuffed up when I went to bed so that made it hard to sleep. Tried resting in the recliner where my head could be more upright, but that caused other problems. So got a couple more pillows and propped up a bit more in bed. Slept somewhat restlessly the rest of the night.
Was thankful for the Lord’s help in getting through school this morning. Was VERY tired by the time the school day ended. Warmed up dinner, ate, and went for nap. Took to nap a hot water bottle for cramps in the abdomen, and a cool wet washcloth to put on my face. Was thankful for a couple hours rest.
After nap, I cut Daddy’s hair. He was long overdue for a haircut. Graded the math worksheets, spelling quizzes, and English lessons. Haven’t recorded grades yet, but can do that tomorrow.
Then it was time to get supper. I was supposed to make cookies for Daddy too, but did not feel up to that. All I ate for supper was a half egg salad sandwich. Wasn’t very hungry. Straightened up the kitchen, got the dish water ready, and then went to bed. Daddy was kind enough to do up the dishes. There weren’t very many this evening.
Slept for a couple hours, getting up once for my lemon soda drink. Just ate one of the pieces of toast that I had fixed for supper. Also some dried bananas and dates.
The men were here this evening for Bible school.
“12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” John 15:12-14
