Sunday, July 28, 2013

Had a good morning of worship at our church. We are now going every other week between this one at the one where the “mean girls” reside. Maegann still wants to go as she loves being on the mission team and helping in the nursery. I know she could do those things at this other one too, but for now this is what we’re doing.

After we got home we had lunch and then headed out to the County Fair. We had a lot of fun. Wandered through the animals first and had to get one of Maegann with a pig because she’s always been so afraid of them since she was very little.

We then chose to go watch the magician as he was just starting as we went by. The kids really enjoyed him. Then it was on to the building that has lots of displays and vendors before heading to the carnival area. The kids had a great time on the rides.

Couldn’t believe Isaac wanted to go on this one. Just spins very fast. He said it was fun, but he wasn’t feeling as good afterwards!

I even got to go on a ride with Maegann as she didn't want to go on her own so shared her tickets.

By the time we were heading back to the van my knee was very angry with me. Once home I headed straight for the ibuprofen and then took a long nap. That helped a lot. It was a good "test" for me to know how long I could go before it started aching.

Didn't end up going back for the concert after all as they were doing sound checks as we went by and Maegann said, "Will it be that loud?" She's always been sensitive to volume so she made the decision not to go back for it.

Tomorrow I will start the day receiving my last planned IV. Guessing they will do another live blood test on Tuesday when I go in for my knee. Will ask tomorrow when I see the doctor.

How can you speak good things when you are evil? For out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks. (Matthew 12:34)

The Bible says that out of the heart the mouth speaks. We can learn a lot about ourselves by listening to ourselves. Do your thoughts and words reflect your complete dependence on God, realizing that His abilities empower you to do anything you need to do in life?

Be willing to face anything God wants to show you and ask Him to change you. If you are trusting in your own strength, begin to trust God instead. If you are trying to do things out of your own human abilities and growing frustrated, tell God you want Him to work through you and let His sufficiency by your sufficiency.

How often do you say, “This is too hard for me” or “I just can’t do this”? What will you now begin to say to reflect your trust in God’s ability to help you do whatever you need to do?

(From "Trusting God Day by Day" by Joyce Meyer)

    I just love the fair! I can't do too much these days when I go, but it is fun to watch my family and other families as well.

    I love reading about the things you and your young family do together, it brings back a lot of wonderful memories with our kids when they were young and not. Starting to carry the stresses of adults.

    Always enjoy the moment!

    What an awesome day. I grew up on a farm and so miss fairs like that. Thanks for sharing.

    Sounds like a great morning/afternoon and I'm glad you were able to get home and rest you knee after! My daughters Allix(10) and Joanie(9) both suffer from a "can't do" attitude and so we have many discussions about relying on God and instead of saying "I can't do it," they need to say, "I can do it with God's help." It is slowly sinking in. I have to wonder if somehow this is my doing since they are the youngest. Did I discourage them from trying new things because they were the babies? I didn't think I did that but I'm not sure so now I consciously watch what I say and how I word things.

    We don't do many concerts either because of my daughter's noise level sensitivity.

    Glad you had a good time at the fair.
