One beautiful day, just 81F degrees with a minimal 47% humidity!! Plenty hot in the sun to get in the kiddie pool with the children, but, alas, we don't have privacy of any type....well, maybe the van. We're gonna head outside again before bed. It'll be another late nite, the children took an hour nap at 4P.M!! But then again, I do stay up til 2 or 3 in the morning anyway. (Yes, I do sleep for about 5-6 interrupted hours) I'm not complaining...I get so much done in the day, AND so much I need to accomplish is done after children are in bed. I've found that I don't have the energy to complain, but totally lean on God, which makes my day calmer, more efficient, beautiful!!
"Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong." II Corinthians 12:10
I don't struggle with the flesh when the flesh is weak!! It makes it so much easier to live for Christ!
So, today, #2 has been singing, "The Trees of the Field"
You shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace
The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you
There will be shouts of joy and all the trees of the field will clap,
Will clap their hands
And all the trees of the field will clap their hands (clap, clap)
The trees of the field will clap their hands,
The trees of the field will clap their hands
As you go out with joy!
Taken from Isaiah 55:10
Sorry I can't find a link for this next song (it's not what's out there)
Fear not: for I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
When thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee:
When thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned;
Neither shall the flame kindle a fire on thee
For I am the Lord thy God
It's a wonderful minor melody that repeats over and over! As well as blessing me over and over!! It's taken from Isaiah 43:1-3
