I had hoped we were done with illness for awhile but it appears not. Anna has been sick since Sunday night with a fever. She has been very fussy and not nursing. Thomas now has a fever and is very cranky. If you are reading this, please pray that the rest of us can stay healthy. We are supposed to see Jesse's Aunts soon and also go to our nephew's birthday party on Sat. Plus Jesse is working an extremely grueling 5-night in a row stint and needs to stay healthy!
Quote of the day...Thomas is afraid of the vacuum and when he saw me getting ready to use it shouted " No, mommy!! That sweeper is a bad boy!!!".
I am really enjoying our church Bible Study...a Kay Arthur study entitled "Lord, I need grace to make it today." It is an excellent study of the 2 Convenants...Old and New. I can never cease thanking God for His grace (unmerited favor). We have completed 3 chapters, thus far. She stresses (so far) that the law is there for 3 reasons...1)the Law sets before us the righteous standards of God. (we see what it is is to live righteously). 2)By the Law is the knowledge of sin.
3)The Law serves as a tutor to bring us to Christ.
Of course the Law doesn't save us, only God's grace does that. In her words: It is by grace we are saved, that we know Him intimately, that we live day by day, deal with the traumas of life, serve God and please Him....
Memory verse for today:
Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in whice we stand; we exult in hope of the glory of God.
