Friday Night Catch-up
I'm about 1/3rd of the way finished painting my kitchen cabinets. (They look beautiful so far.) Then comes the walls. Then the floor in the spare bedroom, then the middle room - and all this if the Lord wills and I live long enough to see it through, and live here long enough to see it through. My goal is to have the interior painted and the carpets removed and floors resurfaced in a year, though even that may not be enough time.
The new dog, Schubert, is adapting to life here. The other pets are used to him now. The cats have ceased stalking and ambushing him. He and Ginger haven't had a fight in a couple of weeks. It's been almost two days since he's pooed in the house. I've got to say, he's an annoying little brute. He's very needy, very demanding, questionably housebroken, and also very sweet. He came to just the right place, here to the Island of Misfit Toys. Everyone in our immediate family has a special heart-place for misfits and outcasts. Every pet in our house came here second-hand, rescued from abandonment. Every person, too.
I found out this morning that our ladies' Bible study in Titus will be wrapping up next week. That means the ball's heading into my court again. But, it's looking like, as a result of upcoming weddings, childbirths, and holidays, we'll be on hiatus through the New Year and possibly until February. That gives me plenty of time to prepare for the next class. (I was really hoping to get through Religious Affections before the next study, and it looks like I'll be getting my wish.)
Until then, by the grace of God, and by the power of the Spirit, I'll be battling some areas of sin in my heart that this study through Religious Affections has exposed to me. I can't move forward without some corrections in my attitudes. I'll probably share more about this in time, though once again, it probably won't prove very interesting to anyone but me. Hopefully, however, I'll reflect Christ more clearly as a result.
Tomorrow I hope to make quite a bit more progress on my cabinets.
