I am enjoying our Easter break. I gave Sean (and me) two weeks off, except for the fact that Sean only has to do math every day. We are enjoying our late mornings. I am working on Sean's birthday present and am taking every opportunity to sit and sew. I am making him another quilt, this time the theme is Star Trek! I will try to post some photos soon.
Last night I attended our Church women's meeting out in the Lamb's home. The fellowship was VERY good and it was great so see everybody in an atmosphere where we can chat over a cuppa and catch up. Sigita managed the study quite well. She talked about the prodigal son and made comparisons to something that happened to her last year. We finished the evening with song and more tea & chat.
Sean's friend Rhys is sleeping over tonight and another friend of his, Dylan, is sleeping over tomorrow night. I enjoy these times and try to make their stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible which includes coke floats or hot drinking chocolate /chocolate chip cookies which they love!
On Thursday Niall, Sean, Rhys, Dylan, Paula, Luke and I plan to go to Belfast City to W5, imac 3D movie and then finish the day off with a treat to the Pizza Hut. W5 is a terrific venue where you can spend hours interaction with all kinds of kids science stuff, and this particular pizza hut is the business!
Spiritually I am doing ok. I am reading my Bible and after finishing in Revelations last week, I have started again in Genesis. I love reading through the Bible this way and by the time I read through the New Testament I really look forwards to the Old Testament. I am reading through a couple of books too. One by John MacArthur about the prodigal son (second time reading this) and another, (forget the name and don't want to run upstairs to get it, will later!) about prayer.
Last week Niall spent quite a bit of time, with a little help from us, delivering newspapers. We put about 300 tracts in them so I am pleased with that. Also he gave out more Bibles in Blackrock. Don't think I have mentioned this... We have over 1,200 NKJV Bibles sitting in the Church Centre waiting to be put into the homes of the houses in a village called Blackrock so we started the task. It's slow going but we know it's worth it:0)
Because of the Bibles and tracts are going out, a few unpleasant things happened. I know the devil won't be happy with God's word going out and is bound to stir up some trouble but I also know that God is in control and He knows there is nothing quite like trials in our lives to make us more like His Son, Jesus.... 'Count it all joy'....
We are thinking of getting a dog... Not sure what, when or how much but Sean is thrilled so watch this space:0)
Hope you all have a good, fruitful and peaceful Easter and that you remember what it should be about.
God bless you all.
