John 2:13-22

When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said, Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father’s house into a market!

His disciples remembered that it is written; Zeal for your house will consume me.

Then the Jews demanded of him; What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?

Jesus answered them, Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days.

The Jews replied, It has taken forty-six years to build this temple and you are going to raise it in three days? But the temple he had spoken of was his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.

Yesterday was my day off and I spent all day with hubby…

He got the boys to school and then we went to the grocery store…

I wanted to go to the Dollar Store and we wanted to go for a walk, so we walked to the Dollar Store… it was forty minutes each way… we walked through the neighborhood and along the water canal… I found some cheesy novels, four in all… three scary and one drama…

Then we still had a bit of time before son3 came home from school…

Once son3 was home it was time for homework… he has been getting detentions again last week and this week… for missing homework and one for disruptive behavior (he got caught talking in class)… one of his detentions was for homework that was handed out while he was out with his hurt leg…

I did not eat good yesterday… and I ate popcorn… not having a gall bladder I know better than to eat popcorn… but yesterday I put way too much salt on the popcorn and then while we were on the walk I kept my jacket on and got too hot and sweaty and may not have drank enough water… so by 5pm I had a BIG headache… I so wanted to throw up to feel better… instead I went to bed and passed out til 7pm… I got up, couldn’t eat so had something to drink, watched a bit of TV and then was back to bed…

Hubby took son2 to hang out with his friends to play pool to celebrate a couple of friend’s birthdays…

So I wasn’t able to blog or help son3 with his homework or do any of my work that I wanted to do last night… I’ve just felt so tired lately and I guess everything just caught up with me…

Romans 10:5-13

Moses describes in this way the righteousness that is by the law; The man who does these things will live by them. But the righteousness that is by Faith says: Do not say in your heart, Who will ascend into heaven? (that is to bring Christ down) or Who will descend into the deep? (that is to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming; That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame. For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile – the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for Everyone who calls on the name of the lord will be saved.

Today I was still a bit shaky but off to work I went… I’m already behind from Monday so couldn’t miss today… I did my scans this morning in electronics… and then spent a bit of time putting away stock in the stockroom for hardware… then I went to lunch… did a bit of paperwork… received new receipts for electronics and spent the last of the day putting away more stock in the stockroom for hardware… and that wasn’t even a bit of everything that needs doing…

Tomorrow we have a store wide district visit so I have to be at work at 6am… and I have no idea what to expect from the visit… so whatever he finds wrong I will now know that is what he looks for and I’ll know a few more of my priorities for each day…

I’m still feeling a bit frustrated in my new job this week in not being able to get enough done every day… I don’t have time to be creative or socialize or mentor or do my own training…

Son3 got another detention again today for homework that was assigned while he was out last week… now we would like to challenge the teacher but then son3 didn’t bring home the books needed to do the missing work… so how can we help him… today was early day and he was home for almost two hours watching cartoons and taking a shower before he even started homework… and then it was three more hours before homework was done… partly because when I got home I kept finding more homework he needed to do and then after finding out about the detention I had him do more homework that wasn’t due til Friday… and he got a lecture about applying himself and that he needs to spend as much time studying and learning as he puts into TV and video games… we do not allow video games during the week but he does go on his hand held DS and watches TV on school nights… he has not been reading his Halo book during the week cause he spends all his time doing homework so has to catch up on the weekend…

Son3 finishes his antibiotic in the morning and gets his stiches out after school on Friday…

Hubby and I are watching a cheesy horror movie on the chiller channel… The Telling…

And then it’s time for bed… I have to be to work early… and hubby has to take both boys to school… and then he gets a day to himself…

Joyce Meyer Ministries

The only way to break the chains of fear and doubt is to know in your heart that God loves you—no matter what.

If you want to enjoy life, you have to let God be God.

God is always present, but we are not always paying attention. –Joyce

Talk to God through short little prayers throughout your day—every prayer doesn’t have to be long and eloquent.

Prayer is our acknowledgement to the Lord that we cannot carry our burden of care, so we lay it all on Him.

Wouldn't you love a day for yourself? (but I know you do the best you can). I think you'll eventually settle into your new job; hasn't been that long that you started into it; just give it a bit more time.
