Today has been good.
Got up. Ate breakfast. Read until it was almost lunch time. Got ready for the day. Had a family meeting to figure the next few days out. Ate lunch. Went for a walk. Went to Giant Eagle to get Ramona and Beezus from the Red Box. Went to the library to pick a couple things up. Came home and did my stretching routine while Katie and Dad went to pick up Eh Dah Doe, Eh Dah Po, Ehne Thau, and Be Bin. They got here and we all caught up a little bit... then Mom, Hannah, Eh Dah Doe, and I played Monopoly Deal. Then Katie and Ehne Thau joined us and Mom left to finish dinner... then we ate dinner. And now we're watching Despicable Me. Except I'm blogging because I've seen it 3 times in the past 5 days. Hah.
Tomorrow we're taking the Karen girls back and then we're going to see Secretariat at the dollar theater and then I'm spending the night at Carrie's house! So that should be fun! :)
I will hopefully be able to blog in the morning... and thereby not break my "blog every day for a year" "resolution." A month and a bit before I'm "done." Ya know.
9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.
My "New Years Resolution": To pray like these people did. They prayed like no one was business. They prayed and prayed and prayed. They didn't stop praying. They were in constant communication with God. They asked God to give the people of Colosse with wisdom and understanding so that they would live a life worthy of the knowledge of God. They prayed that they would be strengthened so that they would have patience and endurance. And they gave to God who qualified them to share the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. Whew. That's some crazy awesome prayer.
13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
Rescued. God has rescued us. This reminds me of Jon Acuff's latest Serious Wednesday post. He's rescued us and he brought us into his kingdom with his son. His son that he gave for our redemption.
And now I go back to watching movies with the girls. I believe that Ramona&Beezus is up next! :)
