What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Saturday Stuff



Instead of the bullet posts, today I am just going to summarize.

In summary.... I worked in the Granary all day.  I finished switching over cold-weather clothes for all the children.  I moved big heavy things from the top to the bottom of the granary so that the only thing in the upstairs of the granary was attic stuff (no garbage, no barn stuff, no random stuff).  I looked in too many bins, through too many clothes, for too many minutes hours.  I brought baskets of clothes back to the house.  Basically, I worked like a dog.


Now here I am~ my fingers are numb, my arms are limp and my feet are sore.  And I am wondering if pizza two nights in a row (this time, store bought) might be in order for tonight.  Sitting down Driving to pick up a pizza sounds wonderful right about now.  Or maybe not.  Maybe I will just say "Have at the cereal, y'all." in my best redneck voice and then pass out on the couch.

Come to think of it~ I can't pass out just yet.  Somehow, I will need to muster up enough gumption to get these children bathed.  And bake bread for communion tomorrow.  Oh yeah....and made a batch of homemade toothpaste because I PROMISED my eager children that it would be done by the end of the week.  ugh.

Tomorrow is the sabbath so I don't intend to work any more than I have to.  After church, I will likely write a letter or two, crochet a bit, possibly fall asleep, and just plain chill out.

The Lord is good to us to give us sabbath rests. 

You have yerselves a good weekend, y'all. We'll be a seein' you folks come Monday.

(I've become terribly good at redneck since marrying Matt.  HA!)

 

 Edited to add: You'll be happy to know (or rather, I am happy to SAY) that I did, in fact, rustle up food other than pizza OR cereal for my family and not only did I bathe the children, make communion bread (and a loaf for us) and make homemade toothpaste...but I also shredded six zucchini to freeze, made muffins and breakfast bread for tomorrow morning, put all the clean laundry away, took all the kitchen equipment I have been using lately (roaster oven, canner, pressure canner, Foodsaver, crockpot, etc.) back where they belong AND did the dishes.  The realization that it MUST be done can be very motivating, it turns out.  Having supper helps too.
