I hope that you had a great time this weekend. I know that I did. I got to go with my nephew to a boy-scout camp out. We had a great time and he was able to do a lot of things that he can not do day to day. HE shot the BB gun, slingshot and played other games he could not have done at home. I was happy that he was having fun outside. SO many kiddos today think that they need technology to have fun.
That night we grilled out hot dogs and made s'mores. He was so happy to go and he is now wanting to do the summer camp out. I am not sure about that one. A week in a tent may be too much for me. Not really but I will ask him closer to time what he wants to do.
I hope that your weekend was a great one. Today I wanted to take a moment and talk about shoe boxes. I know that this topic can be confusing but bear with me. How many shoe boxes do you have around your house? I have quite a few. Well during this time of year Samaritan's Purse organizes Christmas Child. This mission activity means that you go to the store ( I usually go to the $1 store) and get little gifts to fill the boxes with. Then you send them off to go in various parts of the world. This gives missionaries an opening to some places that they could not get to otherwise. I am amazed that the Lord gives us so many opportunities to help others around the world.
I went to the farmers market today and spent quite a bit. But I think that I get more value for my money there then I do at the grocery store. Not to say that I would completely stop going to the grocery store but I am lowering my dependence on it. I like seeing local farmers and helping them keep their businesses open. I like to know where my food comes from. It makes me feel happy that I can help put a smile on their face.
have a lot of sinus infections due to mold this year. I am trying to work with those that are in my school building to assist in the removal. But it can be hard when they seem to not care. There needs to be air circulating all the time. Temperature should be consistent in schools and attack mold with bleach. Leaks should be fixed immediately. I am at a loss to know what to do with this issue. How do you deal with mold?
My week was crazy last week. I had kiddos here, there and everywhere. It would not be as bad but one of my kiddos who does mostly inclusion had her teacher quit. Like literally, she just came in and told the principal here is my three day notice and then left 3 days later. So, she has been with me more trying to get help. Then I just finished 2 re-evaluations and will be starting another one tomorrow. I had to get all that paperwork ready last week. It has been crazy but I have found a new hobby that I enjoy. I was in Walmart the other day and I found a coloring book that had bible verses. I have found that it is a great stress reliever. I focus on the verse as I am coloring it and itv calms me down. I am praying that this is a great start to a new way of relaxing. What is a hobby that you do to relax?
John 14:27 NIV27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
