Sunday Scripture: Proverbs 10:4

Proverbs 10-4This past week was a great week for us to be following 1st Thessalonians 5:18 “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” because our week has been a rollercoaster ride for us.  At the start of the week I finally got my coaching contract for the sport that I have already coached, long story short, I am finally getting paid for the job that I have already done so a high point.  A day later we found out that our little family get together on Halloween was going to be a lot bigger, which is nice and fun however hanging out with three sweet boys on the craziest day of the year when they are hopped up on candy is not the most relaxing way to unwind after a day of teaching middle school students so a middle but fun point.  Then we got the great news that Karen’s sister gave birth to a beautiful girl that is just as healthy and perfect as she can be, so once again a high point.  As we approached the weekend we discovered the wood floors that we have been putting down in all of our rooms has been discontinued, and now we are scrambling to find enough to finish the two rooms that we have left, so a low point.  Karen and I thick or thin have been giving God all the praise in each of the circumstances listed above, and things seem to be working out.

This week’s Sunday Scripture is Proverbs 10:4 which states, “Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.”  The reason that I am going with this verse is because I am going to use it as a personal reminder to get things done around the house.  During our recent vacation I woke up around 4 in the morning and could just not go back to sleep.  My mind was just racked with all the unfinished business I had at the house of just things that need to be taken care of before baby M gets more mobile and she already is.  So far the first week back from vacation I have gotten the carpet up and the most of the carpet tacks ripped up, but I still have a long way to go before the rest of the great room is done which will double the size of M’s play area.  Hopefully I can keep this scripture in focus over the next couple of weeks and not fall into the lazy trap of sitting on the couch during M’s naps or when I get home from work.
