|Double /Triple Dose of Sugar~!|
Tracie (Ben's Mom) and I took Ben to the Cedar Rapids Library and the new library is so cool.. They have a treadmill attached to a computer table ~ Ben is reading a book while walking on the treadmill...What a great idea~! That's the way I like doing things,,multi-tasking. He loves going to the library and when we go we usually spend 4 to 5 hours there..
Yesterday at church the Pastor asked if anyone had taken a test this week.. Lots of young people's hands went up..College age students.. This was testimony Sunday and a time when people ~ if they want to come up and tell how God had worked in their life this year. There were about 9 of us that went up and I gave a testimony about how I love to witness to people and see where they are with their walk with God. My oldest Son,(age 33) Wally was killed in a automobile accident 18 years ago and what got me through this whole ordeal was my strength that I had with God.. As long as I kept my eyes on Jesus I was strong.. But when my eyes were not on Jesus I was a basket case. When we go through hard times in our lives we need to lean on God to get us through the ordeal.
I got to thinking about what the Pastor had said ~if any of us had taken a test.. I think God is giving ALL of us a test everyday.. Did you pray today? Did you read your bible today? Did you read your daily devotions? How was your driving to work today, or shopping mall~~ did someone bother you by not driving fast enough or being in the wrong lane? Did you get bothered by standing in the checkout lane and seeing the lady in front of you is paying for her groceries with lots of pennies..? ( I went up and helped her count ALL those pennies). What are we doing to show other people God's love.... what are we teaching our children... Because it's so bitter cold outside I went out to my mailbox and put some handwarmers in the mailbox for the mail person that will deliver my mail later today.. An hour ago it was -13 and now it's -8.. and it's 1:30. Lots of schools cancelled today because of the bitter cold..
January is always a starting over month for me.. I don't make New Years Resolutions ~ I don't keep them...So I'm starting by reading The Daily Walk Bible.. by next year I'll have read the whole bible, read the special daily devotions that are included in this bible, have insights to help me understand what I have read..and have a closer walk with God.. It will be a jouney and I'm going to write down my thoughts in a journal.. Day 7 will be tomorrow and I have been faithful so far in reading the bible everyday..
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa~!
