August 30. It was warm all through the night last night, and quite foggy when we got up this morning. Since it was warm, Daddy decided not to start the fire going this morning. While we were out hanging clothes, we could see lots of black clouds mixed in with the fog. We wondered if it would rain or if the clouds and fog would change to sunshine. Well, it only rained a few drops, but the clouds never did turn to sunshine. We didn’t even get to go out for our Saturday walk today. The day was damp and cool. so after lotu, Daddy did get the fire going.
It has been somewhat of a quiet day. Not too many here for lotu. Tomas continued his teaching today on knowing God’s will, using verses in Proverbs to show the importance of having godly counsellors to help us to know God’s will. Matthew had him go ahead and oversee the prayer time too. There were quite a lot of prayer points. Gibson is concerned about his daughter Betty too, and Daddy said she wasn’t in Bible school last night. How these young people need some consistent godly examples and good teaching from the Word!
After lotu, I worked on next week’s lesson plans for a while. Then Daddy turned on the generator, and I added a couple pictures to the new soul-winning lesson before printing out the front sides of the pages. This evening, I’ll do the back sides. After he turned off the generator, I got the next Bible/music test made up. Will need that on either Tuesday or Thursday.
Then I put water on the wood stove to heat for spaghetti for dinner and started making some cookies. Let’s see, what kind of cookies shall I make this time? Decided to whip up a recipe that I called Almond Hazelnut Mocha Bars with coconut topping. A while back, Daddy had bought some hazelnut flavoured coffee, but it didn’t taste that good. He was going to throw it out, but I thought I might try it first. It doesn’t taste good by itself, but it is pretty good mixed with the Folgers in my cappuccino. And thought it might be okay for baking too. The cookie bars turned out yum!
While I was working in the kitchen, Daddy went out and got part of the clothes in. Some of them were still not dry since there was no sunshine. After we ate, he brought the rest in. Only a couple handfuls needed to be hung in the guest room.
After nap, I washed my hair; finished up next week’s lesson plans; put music lessons into the students’ notebooks; and with the few minutes that were left, I got journal notes set up to send to C&C. I was about to go get supper on the table when Erisa came. After talking with her a little while, we had our supper.
Amanda came some time this morning with some eggs. Hadn’t seen her for quite a while so asked her where she’d been. I talked to her a while about the Lord and about how going to lotu does not save anyone. God loves her and only God can save her, not lotu. I encouraged her to think about God and her need to know Him. We continue to pray for her.
“25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; 26Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.” Hebrews 11:25,26
