NIPTO, Day 324


Yesterday and today were both great!
Yesterday... we got up late... went on a walk... did some stuff that I don't remember... played Monopoly Deal, ate dinner, listened to Dad read some of Gazelles, Baby Steps, and 37 Other things Dave Ramsey Taught me about Debt, watched Little Women, then got ready for bed. After that Katie, Hannah, and I sat around in the living room with Cinderella (Rodgers and Hammerstine) on in the background and talked. Then went to sleep. Got up this morning and got ready. Then we went to the mall! Hannah and I went to Forever 21, Claire's, Bath&Body Works, a puzzle store, Sears, Payless, and Charlotte Russe!
Then we got lunch... (at three pm). And... went on a walk? Played a lot of Monopoly Deal. Ate dinner. And now we're watching Confessions of A Shopaholic.

Annnnd now NIPTO.

Colossians 1:3-8
 3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel 6 that has come to you.

Paul and Timothy would always thank God when they prayed for the people of Colasse. Why? They heard that they were faithful and loving. The love that they had for others came from the hope that they had in heaven. 

 In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. 7 You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf, 8 and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.

The gospel was being spread because they heard it and understood it. They learned it from Epaphras. He was faithful to God and to God's people. 

And I think that's where I'm going to leave it tonight. I'm going to head to bed early. 
The Karen girls are coming over tomorrow and are spending the night, and then on Thursday I'm going to see a movie with Carrie, and then I'm spending the night at her house! So I need to get a decent night's sleep.
