May 28, 2009

Today is Thursday. It is 7:12 AM right now.

By the way, my mom was born on May 26, 1945 and my dad on March 15, 1946. I am mainly righting this down for me. My dad: James Buddington Woolsey, my mom: Louella Jean Shannon Woolsey.

Yesterday was a good one. Best things that happened. I got my website working a little better at . It was only my second day fiddling with it. I am having to learn a new online site building program which is slowing me down a bit for now. Matthew and Ashlyn took apart our broken trampoline in our backyard. After dismantling it they hauled the pieces to the curbside for pickup. Ralph W. also came and fixed our hot water valve on our bathtub that had been broken for about two weeks. We have been turning the hot water off at the hot water heater so it would not run all day out of the tub faucet.

G. B. preached at CLF last night. He did a good job and spoke of Christians needing to be explorers into the frontiers of evangelism. Explorers, he said, do not invent new things but discover what is already there.

Worship rehearsal went well. M.C. did a great job of leading us in Worthy of All Praise and Oh How He Loves Us. P.H. also helped lead and did wonderfully.

Today is my mom's birthday. Happy birthday mom!

Yesterday was the final check out day for this school year. I got my room clean, grades checked, duty time logs filled out and all the forms filled out for everything including textbook tracking.

This morning I visited the chiropractor, desposited our checks from school in the bank and now I am at McDonalds on Siegen Ln.

I was thinking this morning about how we are always told that living in sin is instantly gratifying or rewarding while living righteously has a delayed gratification. I had to rethink the second part of that. I think there is also an immediate reward when we choose to obey. I don't think God uses only delayed gratification to motivate us but He also uses instant rewards for obedience. For example if I choose to do good instead of evil, I will immediately realize that I will be better off for it and I will have immediate benefit from it. I may suffer for doing right but I will also prosper for it as well.
