The Lord gave us a nice morning and a very warm day until late this afternoon when the stormy weather came up.
Amos taught from Acts 10:24-33 in lotu. One application was that, if you don’t know exactly how to tell your family and friends about Christ, invite them all to come to your house and have someone come and tell them the way of salvation.
In math class today, the students started learning about graphs. They started making a picture graph in class entitled “My School Supplies," and they are to finish it before class time on Friday.
Don’t have much grading to do these days since we have finished a couple subjects and are winding down on others. However, I have been spending a lot of my time on things relating to the school closing, fun day, etc.
Was busy in the kitchen for over an hour this afternoon. Cooked up the rest of the carrots and then made a chicken pot pie for supper with the rest of the chicken I had cooked the other day.
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28
October 30. Our gracious Lord gave us another dry day today. He also gave us strength for another day’s work.
Daddy and Wilson were busy this morning putting up a new closthesline. They had to borrow some of our young men students for a little while, too, to help hold the cross bars while they nailed them up. That job took most of the morning.
In school, we only had Bible class and phonics class. It took them extra time to finish their reading workbook today, however - it was a somewhat difficult lesson. So the first ones didn’t finish for recess until after 10:05 and others up ‘til 10:15. After recess, we practiced music and then they worked on making props until time to go home. They are scheduled to come back this evening to do more work.
Have been working on props and fun day things myself in between other jobs and during the time they were working on their reading workbook.
Lemon trees are starting to produce again, and someone brought us a baker’s dozen lemons this morning. Thank you, Lord, for the lemons. We will enjoy them.
“29Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31
