We were scheduled to go to Pa and Grandma's today but due to bad weather we switched that trip to tomorrow. So we had piano lessons (thanks to Sarah being flexible) today instead. We also met Ashley Wilson who will, Lord willing teach Abigail piano in the fall. Our current piano teacher will enter the marriage covenant in just three weeks!

Great day with Pa and Grandma!

Busy, busy day today. Cob mowed the neighbor's lawn. Mary had two teeth pulled. Abi had a violin lesson. The girls were blessed to play with friends for a couple hours. We had one car (van in shop for brake pads and a new left rear spring) so I took Drew to work and picked him up. Whew - way more running than I enjoy! It was also very Hot and Humid today!

Here is my humidity barometer - Chloe

Our sweet friend, Carol, brought a meal over for lunch! She brought things over in installments. A 7# turkey and sweet potatoes, apples (for me to make apple salad with), rolls, and pies at 9:00 AM. Then she came back around 11:30 with a green bean casserole. She, Cob and I played scrabble together, then Drew came home, carved the turkey and oh man was everything delicious!! We had a nice walk to make room for dessert. I was working in the kitchen after our walk when I heard Mary, Jacob and Carol talking about sin nature. Carol believes people are innately good. It blessed me to hear Mary and Jacob quote scripture and give her gentle yet opposing views based on God's word.

We had the Peterman's here for supper and I failed to get a single picture :(  It is a blessing to get to know families from our new church better!

Andrew and Michelle called yesterday in need of a place to lay their heads so they could attend Emmaus' Baccalaureate. I told them sure if they didn't mind sleeping on a futon.  They were game for the floor!  They showed up about 9:30 and stayed until 8:30 AM Friday.  It was great having them here - sweet fellowship.
Andrew and Cob playing guitar together - well maybe Cob is using his guitar pick for a tooth pick :)

Andrew saw Abram climbing the doorway and said he was too big to do that now but used to do it as a kid.  Next thing we knew Andrew was stretched out between the pillars.  Here Abi is giving it a try!

Thinking on these Things

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick, Who can understand it?

I have really been thinking about how deceitful my own heart is. I cannot trust myself. I think my motives are pure and I am living for the Lord but it has to be Him at work in and through me.  He understands my heart.  He knew I needed a new one and sent His son that I could have a new heart.

Knowing my weakness, I can be strong.  Thank you God for Jesus! Thank you that you are all powerful! Thank you for redemption!

2 Corinthians 2:9,10 “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
