I am scum! Truly! For the last 4 years or so, I have upped the “gentleman” training for the boy. Opening doors, car doors, carrying in groceries, heavy loads, etc. He does very well. Today is the boy’s first day at work, and he is working the early shift, so I had to carry down a load of laundry! I know it is just a load of laundry!!! I can carry it down, ~~and I did~~ I am a big girl! but I don’t wanna!!! I am wimp scum!!!
The truffles flopped. The boy threw away the recipe and didn’t make them right. They are still~~even in the frozen state~~the consistency of hot fudge. That’s ok…….we will just eat it with spoons, and he can make another batch! AFTER we find the recipe!
The blood work came back normal for the daughter. I am so happy she doesn’t have Celiacs. So, now they have ordered a barium upper GI with a bowel follow though. That is scheduled for Wednesday morning at 8:30AM. Then I need to give them a call Friday. The doctor seems to think it is Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I know it isn’t. I have that. She doesn’t have the hershey squirts, she isn’t constipated…she is just in pain…I pray that this gives us some answers.
The boy had a pretty good day at work today. He learned all sorts of new stuff…..like how to properly carry a tray with a tea pot, 2 cups and saucers, and strainers without spilling anything. They got so busy that he had 5 tables all by himself…..on his first day of work…..but he got so backed up, that he ended with 3. He got $13 in tips, so that isn’t bad at all….not for 2 hours of work all by himself. I hope that he gets the hang of it. I know he will. He had a lot of information thrown at him today. I hope that they extend him a measure of grace.
Now for the second to the last of the tongue lessons.
27. The Doubting Tongue
If we ever hope to tame a doubting tongue, we must become familiar with the promises of God. We must hide God’s word in our hearts. Words of doubt come out of an unbeliving heart. Of course, merely knowing the promises of God is not enough; we must become proficient at declaring them. Learn to declare your faith rather than discussing your doubts.
Romans 10:17~~Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
28. The Motor Mouth Tongue
Have you ever talked to someone who seemed to have diarrhea of the mouth? On and on she goes, from one topic to the next. When I am in the presence of an incessant talker, I often wonder if that person is lonely, has few opportunities to talk to others, or just plain loves the sound of her how voice. Whatever it is, it tends not to glorify God and shows the selfishness of the one talking.
Proverbs 10:19~~When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.
