We have a washing machine, a lovely, lovely, washing machine, Chris has also mended the drier. Aaaah, no longer do I need to drive to Carrick 2-3 times a week and spend the morning at the washers. Although, last week, they weren’t actually working, so it was a little pointless anyway.
We had a drive up North on Saturday to Letterbreen, to the drier there, but someone else was using it, so we had a drive into Enniskillen and came back and then used it. It took a while, Chris had decided to come in order to spend time with us, I think he thought we’d eat chocolate and have a ‘lovely time’, unfortunately it got a little stressful with all the waiting and it was a wonder we were speaking at all by the end of it. Haha. All is well. Now, anyway :D.
We’ve been outside quite a bit again recently, it even snowed a little the other day and the children were outside in the dark playing in it.
The snow didn’t last long but we’ve been playing outside anyway.
And away from home:
Life doesn’t have to be how everyone seems to think it should be done. For me, just realising it’s fine to just be with your family most of the time and actually liking it and not pursuing other company or ‘friendship’ just for the sake of it, because that’s what we ‘should’do, trusting God that he’ll bring or send us to the right people, that has been very freeing. I like company and meeting people, and having a community and friends is obviously important, as is listening to God and doing as He says. But I also like being alone fairly frequently. The only time I start to question is when people assume we need more than we have and then I realise. No, it’s fine. It is well with my soul.
It’s like anything really, you’re fine until you get told you need more or different… then that starts the cogs turning.
Just want to quote the second part of a scripture… the first part goes… “for God so loved the world that He gave his only son. That whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life”…
The second part is:
“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”
John 3:17-18 ESV
Sorry about this but… seem to be seeing this more and more recently… Christians (whatever the so called denomination)…. Stop putting other Christians down. Stop assuming you know what their priorities should be. Tell each other what God is doing in your lives. Stop assuming you’re the only ones ‘doing’ something for God. Do what He tells you. Love one another. Work together.
Thankyou and goodnight. Or good morning. Whatever. Good bye 👋
