Last night, I was feeling lousy. I’ve been battling a cold along with the rest of my family, and it had started going into my chest. I ate dinner with just the kids, while my husband was out running some errands. Later, after he came home and was eating dinner, I had this craving for hot apple pie, and I told him about it. He told me he was going to head out after dinner, and I said, “Oh no. Please don’t go out and buy an apple pie. I really don’t want it or need it that bad.” I was sitting on the couch while he ate dinner, and I dozed off. When I woke up a short while later, I thought at first I was dreaming, because I smelled apples and cinnamon. It turns out my husband made his own version of apple cobbler just using ingredients we had in the house. It really tasted good! I thank God for my sweet husband. Then he announced that we wouldn’t be doing our family Bible study that night. He wanted to give me a break, because he knew I wasn’t feeling well. A little later, however, we wanted to do something as a family, so we decided to play a new game my brother Bob bought us for Christmas. It’s called Befudiom. We had a fun time playing this game. Basically, what you do is try to get your teammate(s) to guess an idiom by either acting it out, drawing it, using different words to describe it or have them try to guess it in somewhat of a Hangman style. A 60 second timer is included to keep things hopping. If you like word games like I do, I would certainly recommend this one if you have at least 4 people around.
Tonight, I am excited, because my husband and I were able to start a new home Bible study(HBS). We’ve been doing a Bible study(Search For Truth)with a lady named Linda from our church. Linda was telling her daughter and her daughter’s mother-in-law about it a few weeks ago, and they decided they wanted to come too. Psalm 119:30 says,
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”
It’s always thrilling to me to have those moments in a Bible study where the lights come on and the person you are teaching sees something in God’s Word that they never saw or knew before. I’m believing God we’ll have many such moments in this Bible study. I’m thankful also that I am feeling better tonight too. Thank God for His goodness.
