May 11. I was thankful to be feeling a bit better last night and to have a better night’s sleep. However, it was quite cold this morning - down in the low 50’s when we got up; and before the morning was over the cold had gotten into my ears, throat and chest again. I was really feeling miserable by the time classes were over, with a slight fever. Have been taking mega doses of everything we have so didn’t know what else to do other than start on amoxicillin.
Today is our daughter Christy’s 43rd birthday.
Was thankful for a pretty good nap this afternoon and also thankful that there wasn’t much school work to grade or to put on the chalkboard for tomorrow. Spent an hour or so before supper working on the new Bible lessons for school so I can have them ready by Thursday. Today we started a new music lesson and will probably finish that tomorrow.
Then I warmed up supper; and after we ate, I made some oatmeal date bars for our snacks.
Afterward, I printed out new computer lessons for Sunny and Graham, and also printed a copy of the new Bible lesson so I can get that proofread before I make the students’ copies. Sunny and Graham did a little work and then had their computer lesson. Several of the students were here working on their spelling lesson. Matthew came and checked over the verse the students had translated this morning. He just made a couple changes in it so they did pretty well. He said that the lady he talked with yesterday had been saved before, but had gotten away from the Lord and wanted to get things right.
“….having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.” John 13:1b Words of great comfort and encouragement.
May 12. It took ages to get to sleep last night. I felt so miserable. Couldn’t turn on my side without my head getting all congested, and had too much back pain lying on my back. It was probably midnight before I was finally relaxed enough to sleep.
Praise the Lord for strength for the school day. I was thankful the students had a project to do for science class (their last class). While they were working on their project, we had our lunch. Some of them were still here working when we went for our nap, but we asked them to lock the door behind them when they went out.
Daddy wasn’t feeling well today either and is not having Bible school this evening.
Thania came around 3:30 this afternoon to check today’s lessons and is still here, but nearly finished - four hours of work. And I checked some of the lessons myself. Hung up the students’ projects on the bulletin board. For science class, they had to draw pictures showing five ways that they use water.
Then I had to make a meal for this evening. Soup would be a good thing for sick people. Used the last of the ground beef and made a beef vegetable soup.
We learned that a young person from Waisara just died. So even if there were Bible school this evening, some of the students would not be able to come since they would be going to Waisara to cry for the young lad.
After supper, I marked and recorded grades, except for what Thania hasn’t finished checking yet.
Graham came to practice his typing this evening.
“16Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. 17If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.” John 13:16,17
