We had such a great visit with my parents the past two weeks....and slowly life is settling back into our "normal" routine. The kids were somewhat ahead in their schoolwork, so we took several days off (spring break?) while Nana and Grandaddy were here. Today we jumped back into all of our schoolwork and managed to make it through most of our schoolday without any tears....well, we couldn't find one of Grace's books and I told her she was not going to be able to play outside until she found it and got it read. Thankfully, Graham found it in the basement.
Last week, mom and I had the priviledge of going to a live radio recording for Nancy Leigh DeMoss. She actually taught 8 sessions which will be aired later in the fall. She preached from the book of Revelation....and it was powerful! God certainly spoke to me about being a lukewarm Christian. God wants us to be hot-hearted for him and I am guilty of not being hot-hearted so much of the time. I am praying for God to give me a revived burden for the lost. Right now my kids are outside playing in our backyard with a bunch of kids from our neighborhood. Some of them I know do not go to church. Why am I not burdened by that? Why do I just go about my business and ignore the fact that they need Jesus? Do I truly love my neighbors?
This weekend I will be heading out of town with a couple of my friends to go to a ladies retreat. My friend, Andrea, will be speaking at the retreat. Titus 2! I know that even though I am going as a friend and prayer warrior for Andrea, God will have something to speak to me about. Isn't that how it always goes? It's like when you go to work on a mission project and you think you are going to bless someone and then you are the one that ultimately gets the blessing.
Well, I better get up out of my beach chair and go inside and start dinner. We are firing up the grill!!!! Hamburgers! I'm telling you....we have spring fever!
