March Eleventh

Romans 8:1-10

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature. God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.

Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind of sinful man is death; but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God.

You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ; he does not belong to Christ.

Today we were up at 7am… Not feeling the effects of time change… of course the night before I was asleep before ten… but then I was up at 4:30am…

Loving the longer sunshine part of the day already too…

Hubby got son3 off to school…

I took a shower, had hot chocolate, and got on the laptop to check emails and Facebook…

Hubby fixed me waffles and yogurt for breakfast…

And I got started on taxes…

Two and a half hours later and taxes were done… Hubby was afraid with all the changes this year that our refund would be much smaller, but actually we got a bit more…

Son2 moseyed out of bed at 11am and is now at 9pm doing homework for tomorrow…

Hubby was working in the yard and I joined him after the taxes were done…

He’s still cutting up the pile of all the branches and I’m still raking up leaves…

Son2 made lemon aide  out of some of our lemons and some tangerines I bought… It was very good…

I made pork chops with onions and green peppers, scalloped potatoes, veggies and left overs for dinner…

Son3 came home from school, took a shower and has been doing homework except for a break for dinner… he has finished all the work due tomorrow, and some due later in the week… he brought home a list of missing assignments but has not started those yet… I have completely cleared his desk in his room and told him from now on he is doing all his homework in his room… Son2 was remembering today when we had stopped letting him do homework at the kitchen table as it was too distracting… son3 needs more structure to do better homework and get better grades… and more responsibility… and son2 being 19 doesn’t have any better habits… waiting til the last minute to do homework and he doesn’t have any responsibility either… they really need to clean their rooms…

We watched Emergency and See Dad Run since son3 was done with his homework…

And had some ice cream with caramel sauce…

Now it’s time to get everyone ready for bed… son3 has benchmarks (state testing) tomorrow…

And I have another day off…

I bought some lemons at the store and made lemonade here too. I know they aren't as tasty as your fresh ones but still it hit the spot. Glad you put Son 3 in his room to study without distraction, hopefully that will help. Hope you have another great day off.

I bet that lemonade was delicious!! Good for you for getting a refund! I haven't even thought of getting our taxes done this year yet. I think that is wise to have son3 do his homework in his room; be consistent with it and I bet he'll start getting the hang of bettter study habits.
