This statement is so true. Hard times and failings are life’s greatest teachers.
The past two days have been crazy busy and I didn’t even go to work. Yesterday John and I spent the entire day working on Hannah’s room. I did the second coat of paint on the walls. John made a new wooden window casing. I helped Hannah paint furniture. Then, we all painted the floor. Pictures will follow soon. I spent the evening prepping for my Sunday School lesson. Today we all went to church. I taught Sunday School. We came home and I made lunch for the masses and Lilli, Hannah and Chad headed for the beach. John and I stayed home and made dinner for the whole family. We made fajitas with 3 different meats and sauted veggies. All the kids and their families came for dinner. Then, my brother Paul stopped by for a surprise visit. Now it is 10:00 and it is time for bed.
Today I am thankful for the Spirit and for the Sabbath. I am thankful for the spirit that comes to the heart on the Sabbath.
