"Exodus 18:8 And Moses told his father-in-law all that the I AM had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, and all the problems that had happened to them on the way, and how the I AM delivered them.
(My comments) That must have been some story time!
9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the I AM had done to Israel, whom He had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.
(My comments) The Bible calls Jethro the “priest of Midian.” It is entirely possible he was a priest to the true God for the Midianites. He was one of several non-Israelites mentioned in the Bible who evidently worshiped the true God. Salvation was not just for the Jews, but to any who feared God.
10 And Jethro said, “Blessed be the I AM, who has delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, who has delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.
11 “Now I know that the I AM is greater than all gods, because when the Egyptians were so arrogant, He proved Himself more powerful.”
12 And Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, offered a burnt offering and sacrifices for God. And Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses' father-in-law before God.
(My comments) They had a party.

Today's Bible Study-
Exodus 18- A Court System

Romans 4- Abraham's Justification by Faith
Today's work in Romans 5
KJV Romans 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
Romans 5:15 But just like the sin, so also is the free gift. For if through the sin of one many are dead, much more the undeserved favor of God, and the gift by that undeserved favor, which came by one man, Jesus Christ, has been given to many.
16 But the results are different. For Adam's sin brought condemnation, but [God's] free gift brings us from many sins to perfect righteousness.

Today's Hymn

? recorded steps yesterday. Didn't wear the phone.

AY usually says A at the end of a base word.

On schedule for next week:
  • Taking my 16yo to get her learners permit.
  • Mount Never Rest (laundry) 
  • Weekly Home blessing 
  • Work on the porch, dinning room, and yard
  • Start working in the yard and garden
  • List some more books with eBay and mail what sells this week.
  • List stuff with Craigslist.
  • Decide on events for both the church and my business.  (:-) found some Facebook pages that will help this! May have one lined up for June 9)
  • Pull music for worship service
  • Finish Romans 5
  • Make salve
  • Get oldest son's phone company changed.
Didn't get much done other than switching my mattress out. I had a headache and ended up napping through most of my work time.

The Church’s Opinion of Children is One of its Greatest Weaknesses

A 'Convention of States' is the last thing America needs right now

Flexi of the Day:  

A Hairband with a magnetic clasp= a bracelet! 

For my Daily routines, see the sidebar.

Monthly Habit we are building:

Making our Beds every day.

This is something I have done for a long time. It really does make the whole house seem cleaner.

Weekly Home Blessing

  • Take all the trash out of the house (which we do every day, not weekly)
  • Change the sheets (Everyone is responsible for their own bed except my 6yo who is too short to reach his loft bed well enough to make it. Our new mattress has arrived, so I will be changing everything out.)
  • 10 minutes feather dusting the house (don't own a feather duster. Need to fix that. Meanwhile, set the timer and cloth dust for 10 minutes.)
  • Shine the windows and door glass (Takes less than 10 minutes in my house.)
  • Recycle magazines and catalogs (Which I do through out the week, tossing after just a day or two in the house)
  • Vacuum the middle of the floors (needs to be done daily, or minimum every other day, in our house. 11 people in 1400' home with no sidewalks [just dirt around the entry] just has too much dirt to wait a whole week)
  • Quick mop the kitchen and bathrooms (You know, I think this may need to be done daily too, at least in the kitchen and dining room)

      Weekly zone focus:  

Entry, dinning room, porch, and yard (Flylady's entry must be into her dinning room.)

(This is the zone we are tackling all our monthly and less often chores in this week) 

Today's Meals:

  • SOS
  • SOS
  • Quesodillas

FlyLady Daily Mission

  • Clean the walls and windows in the Dinning room.

Tami's assignments (Tami is a homeschooling mom of 6 who is a partner of FlyLady):

  • Monday - Declutter & Sweep the Front Porch
    Tuesday - Declutter in the Entryway
    Wednesday - Declutter in the Dining Room
    Thursday - Detail Dust the Dining Room
    Friday - Detail Sweep & Mop or Vacuum the Entryway

"To take the first step in faith, you don't have to see the whole staircase: just take the first step." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This applies to a clean house, too.

"Anything worth doing is worth doing Imperfectly" - Flylady

"Baby Steps."

"You can do anything for 15 minutes." 

"You are not behind. Just jump in where you are."

"Your house didn't get this way overnight. It won't get under control in a day. It takes time."

How about you? What's on your list today?

Do you use a feather duster? Do you like it? 

Have a great day!

I highly recommend

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
