Worked this morning on getting the rest of the plans made for the next three days of school. I believe everything is done, and I’ll be able, the next few days, to concentrate on letters, progress reports, etc., before we go to town.
Today Wan and Gibson worked on trimming the rest of the windows in the schoolroom. It is a blessing to have those done.
After nap this afternoon, I cleaned the bathroom. Then made pineapple crisp, lemon sugar cookies (for family day coming up Wednesday morning at school), and granola. Then paid Serah and got supper. Not much to do to get supper though — just toast my bread, cut up a tomato, and put things on the table.
"His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers." Song 5:13 ….In Jesus I find not only fragrance, but a bed of spices; not one flower, but all manner of sweet flowers. He is to me my rose and my lily, my heart's- ease and my cluster of camphire. When He is with me it is May all the year round, and my soul goes forth to wash her happy face in the morning-dew of His grace, and to solace herself with the singing of the birds of His promises. Precious Lord Jesus, let me in very deed know the blessedness which dwells in abiding, unbroken fellowship with Thee. I am a poor worthless one, whose cheek Thou hast deigned to kiss! O let me kiss Thee in return with the kisses of my lips.—Morning and Evening
May 2. I guess I was tired last evening. Took a little nap in the recliner before bath. Then went to bed right after bath. It was probably around 9:45. That’s the earliest I’ve been to bed for a while. It was a blessing to get a fairly good night’s rest.
Nuanda was not feeling well at all this morning so Daddy preached both meetings. Finished up the overview of the book of Romans. Lord willing, when we come back from town, he will start the verse by verse teaching.
After nap today, I got bread mixed up since all our town bread is gone now. There wasn’t time enough for it to rise and be baked for supper, so made biscuits at supper time as well. After that, I swept up the school room since Wan and Gibson had worked in there yesterday. Then met with the teachers concerning this next week’s classes and family program.
“So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. … Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:42-44, 51-58
