"You shall not steal."
Hello guys and gals.
I forgot to tell you guys that my weigh in was day before yesterday. Drum roll please, I weighed in at 282.2. That is a 3.2 pound loss in one week. I am glad to see a decrease instead of an increase like last week. I took my measurements today, and I was 1/4 of inch smaller in my waist, 3/4 of inch smaller at my hips, 1/2 an inch smaller at my thighs, and a little over 1/2 an inch smaller in my arms. I guess you can say I lost 2 total inches, this week.
Yesterday was a long day. My wife had to take Asher to the doctor because of his temperature. They did chest x-rays, a blood draw, a catheter, and gave him a shot of medicine. That poor child was poked and prodded all over yesterday. Well the doctor seems to think that he has a virus. He is doing better tonight but it was a battle getting him to eat and drink. I hope that he is able to sleep tonight.
Commandment #8 "You shall not steal!" This is simple. Do not steal. If it does not belong to you then leave it alone. I had some things stolen from me in the past and it didn't just make me mad, it made me upset. How can someone take from someone else? I know of times that even us Christians steal. Sometimes without knowing it. How many times have you taken a pen after signing a receipt, or unintentionally walked out of a store without paying for something? Do you return them, or go back and pay for the item? If you don't you have broken commandment #8.
Lord I want to thank You for Your word and the guidance to bring this word to my friends. Lord I ask that You let us be mindful of all things that cause us to sin, and help us to improve on them. Lord I also ask that You would continue to give me the strength to keep exercising and eating right. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen
