1 Timothy 2

It seems like this should be Friday. It just doesn’t feel possible that I have to get up and go to work again tomorrow. At least today was and tomorrow will be warmer. We’re supposed to get insulation in the garage and entryway either tomorrow or Saturday. That would mean we can start hanging more drywall and OSB on the walls. Of course, by “we” I mean Jon and others…I might watch and can take pictures.

Thought for the day

1 Timothy 2 has some strong encouragement to pray. Here’s a spattering…”The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live. Since prayer is at the bottom of all this, what I want mostly is for men to pray–not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God. And I want women to get in there with the men in humility before God, not primping before a mirror or chasing the latest fashions but doing something beautiful for God and becoming beautiful doing it.”
Pretty tall order, pray for everyone you know. I think we should make big signs “…pray–not shaking angry fists at enemies but raising holy hands to God.” and put them everywhere in an election year. And we become beautiful by our service, not by our looks. Good stuff.
