Jeddy, asked to do school work today.
That was new.
He also made my bed for me while I was downstairs.
(Not that I ever go downstairs without making my bed…)
Elijah, is almost done his first Hardy Boys book.
I found him lying on the floor of his room reading it before bedtime.
I was able to buy about 20 of them for 99 cents each at Christmas time.
Keona helped me cook dinner tonight.
She is capable of so much more than I give her credit for.
Prayer, decided that she was going to be Jeddy’s “buddy” today.
She dressed in a khaki jumper- he dressed in khaki overalls.
They both wore green shirts and called themselves “twins.”
Eve’s violin was out of tune. Again.
I stink at tuning violins.
Charity spent a long time practicing a song on the piano today.
She told me that she thought it was too hard for her.
She thought for a few seconds and then said,
“But I thought that the Christmas song you gave me was too hard at first too, and I learned that one. I guess you wouldn’t give me a song that you knew I couldn’t learn to play…”
And she went on practicing.
I made a mental note of that statement.
Isn’t that exactly what God expects from me?
“Lord, I thought that what you trusted me with- was too much. Too much to handle. But I guess you wouldn’t give me a song that you knew I couldn’t learn to play…”
And she went on practicing…
