What I Have Been Up To!!!!!

WOW!!!! is all I can say. I have been so busy. How about you? 
Washing clothes is NOT just for Monday but whenever 
I have a spare moment to put  them in the washing machine.
I do not iron unless it is something I am sewing.

I have been sewing Monday through Sunday, Oh, that is all week!!

I did visit a dear friend in the hospital.
  I made the bed, cooked, cleaned, have taken several baths, 
brushed my teeth, combed my hair, got some sleep.                                                                                                                                                
There is no time to bake today as 
I had a special wedding to attend.
Blessed to worship and study God’s word.
…….Oh yes, I taught a Ladies Bible Study Class on Tuesday, 
I went to a ladies class Wednesday night, 
I cleaned at the church building on Thursday……..
So it is Not just on Sunday.
I know everyone is busy, 
especially at this time of the year. 
Let us not forget the Peace that Passes All Understanding.

Philippians 4:6-8

New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Where Is the Peace that Passes All Understanding I Everyday Life?

I am going back to work next week. I teach four year olds in a public school. I love teaching these precious souls. However, I love the time I have at home in the summer.

The last several summers we have been away for a month in the summer on a mission trip or traveling. The first three weeks were spent getting ready for the trip. Then we were gone three to four weeks. We were home for three to four weeks before school started after we got home.

This summer has been strange because we were home most of the summer. It has almost been unsettling to me to have so much time at home. I have had too much time to get things done. I have been going through years of accumulations trying to decide what to get rid of and what to keep. There are other factors that have made this an unsettling time. I will write about those at a later time.

I have to keep reminding myself that no matter what is going on in life, I have to stay focused on who is in control. It is my job to claim that peace that passes all understanding on a daily bases. Sometimes it has to be a moment to moment bases. One thing this week has reminded me of that fact. I bought a new laptop computer and had to take it back two times because of problems. This really challenged me to have the peace that passes all understanding. I did though. I picked the laptop up for the second time and brought it home. I turned it on and it did not work. It was nine o’clock at night.
Do I get mad and stew about this all night, planning what I will say to them tomorrow. Or do I claim the peace that passes all understanding. I chose to claim the peace. I prayed asking God to work out the details and guide me on what I need to say and do tomorrow. Guess what? I went to sleep with a splitting headache. I slept like a baby and woke up refreshed without a headache.
I called and spoke to the man who sold me the laptop. He said “I will send a tech guy out tomorrow with a brand new laptop and he will get you set up again.”
Thank you God for the Peace that Passes All Understanding and the wisdom to claim it. Until next time. Philippians 4:7
