Sunday, January 30, 2011

Day 306

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2

Sometimes it is very hard to be humble and gentle, let alone to someone that really annoys you, but in the end, we will see the benefit of being nice to others.

Day 305

“Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.” Mark 9:35

I have always had serving positions, whether as a nanny, cashier, dog walker, stable hand... I have never really aspired to be the highest position in a company, but it is true that without the lowest, there would be nothing done, so maybe the lowest is really the highest...This makes sense to me, but if it does not make sense to you, let me know.

I am off to pick up a dog to pet sit till February 4th, then I am off for a 1-2 hour hike, then clean the house...

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Day 303

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” Ephesians 6:12-13

The red curve line is what the neck is supposed to be at. The spine is supposed to be straight for the back one, and my jaw is crooked to the right in the one with my jaw...

Day 302

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.” James 4:10

The chiropractor did not email the x-rays (even though I called to remind them, so I will try for today.

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Day 301

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8

So Anna has been going to a chiropractor here, and he is a nice guy. You can put down up to five people you think will benefit and if they call within a week of you giving them the business card, you can get a consultation and x-rays for $50 (free x-rays) So I went, and my neck is pretty bad... My mid back is a little bad, and my lower back has a nice curve, but a little too soon. He is going to email me the x-rays, so I will put them up here when I get home from work. He likes to see patients three times a week for the first two months, and then twice a week, then once a week... I am trying to sit properly, stand properly... He has a very reasonable rate, but I have to wait till my paycheck clears to go again... (and get adjusted...) He explains that when your spine degenerates (is injured) its not just the spine, it is the spinal cord, which effects everything, bladder, heart, liver, nerves... so if your spinal cord curves, the nerves pinch, cause problems...

Gotta go to work now, x-rays to follow

Day 300

"Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.” Galatians 6:1

Yay! only 65 days left!

I looked at a few SUV's but the salesman said I should look at a few hatchbacks. My fear was that a hatchback was to small, then you got into station wagons, but he found one that was a good size, and the seats fold in different ways, so it would be good...It is the Honda Fit. The ones they have at the moment are $13,000 (basic) to $21,000 (sport model) I need the one in between (about $15,000-$17,000) The salesman was pretty sure that whatever I had left on my loan would be paid off if I sold my car privately or even traded it in (he was telling me I would get a better deal to sell it privately, but I am worried about fake cheques if I was to do that...) I am not ready to buy anything yet, but now I at least know what I like...

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Day 299

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5

I don't know about you, but I lack wisdom...

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Day 298

"Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him." John 14:21

Yay it is the weekend!!! I got home at 1 after babysitting. Woke up at 7, but went back to sleep till 10. Gonna go for a hike and a grocery shop today, maybe go test drive SUV's tomorrow. (I want to trade my car in/ sell my car and buy a new SUV, as I am doing a lot of dogsitting, and there are a lot of dogs that come with cages, food, beds... its hard to fit it all in my car, and it is hard to keep my car clean as the dogs jump in the front seat, they are would be nice to section them off in an SUV.) Any one have a good SUV that they think I should get the same one?

Day 297

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” Galatians 6:7-8

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Day 296

“[Trials and Temptations] Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” James 1:2-3

This verse always seems to pop up just when I am doing the worst, or close to doing the worst. This month is going to be a little hard on money as the Ontario government says I owe them money, I need a transmission fluid change, my laptop is starting to have more and more problems...

I can take heart in this verse because I know I have been tested before, and I have come out of it all right, so I know I can this time as well.

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Day 295

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Mathew 7:12

How many out there knew that the golden rule came from the Bible?

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Day 294

"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us." 1 John 1:8-10

I for one know that I am a sinner. How many of you will admit that?

Today I get rid of Baruch (the doberman) and I thought I would have a nice break till the next dog on the 29...yesterday, Alysha asked me if I wanted Sekona. So now I have Sekona from today till the 28, then Bailey from the 29-Feb 4...

But at least that will be my next month rent paid...

Monday, January 17, 2011

Day 293

“Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.” Philippians 2:14-16

This verse is good for me today, as I feel like grumbling since I still have not caught up on sleep since my really late night... I woke up, and my first thought was, I don't want to go to work, I want to sleep... (not very good thought...)

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Day 292

“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16

Grocery shopping, a hike, and sleep today!!! Was babysitting till 4:15 am last night...

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Day 291

Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can man do to me? Psalm 56:9-11

Friday, January 14, 2011

Day 290

“Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.” 1 John 4:20-21

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Day 289

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Mathew 25:37-40

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Day 288

“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 2:26-28

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Day 287

“When hard pressed, I cried to the LORD; he brought me into a spacious place. The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Psalm 118:5-6

I really love this verse because it shows God as out protector and our helper, and He listens to us, and He never leaves us.

Monday, January 10, 2011

Day 286

“But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15-16

This is not just a do as I say situation, it is a do as I say and do as I do. How many if us can say both?

Sunday, January 9, 2011

Day 285

"Josiah took away all the abominations from all the territory that belonged to the people of Israel, and made all who were in Israel worship the LORD their God. All his days they did not turn away from following the LORD the God of their ancestors." 2 Chronicles 34:33

Went to the Aquarium yesterday. I now have an annual membership, if anyone wants to go with me, I can get you a %20 discount. Saw Yogi Bear. It was funny in parts, better than I expected it to be, but parts of it were still kind of silly.

Saturday, January 8, 2011

Day 284

“Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is. Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the LORD God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.” Amos 5:14-15

Friday, January 7, 2011

Day 283

"All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation." 2 Corinthians 5:18

“Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.” Isaiah 1:16-17

Busy Busy Busy again. After Morgan went home, I had all of 2 days with only one dog. Then I got Finn for two days (he was great) now I have Sekona for two nights, then I have just Cooper for a day, then Justin comes the day I get rid of Cooper, then Sunday I get Stella, and have her for either four or eight days (they do not know yet) then I may have Baruch for a week. Then January 29 I get Bailey for a week or so. Today is Yvi's birthday, and Monday (the day Justin goes home) is Kristel's birthday...

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Day 280

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

Yesterday was such a beautiful sunny day! It is supposed to be a little snowy today. So far no sign of that.

Monday, January 3, 2011

Day 279

“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,” Titus 2:11-12

I don't know about you, but I need practice with this verse. My self control is not very good

Sunday, January 2, 2011

Day 278

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12

People in this day and age seem to be preoccupied with living as long as possible. I think it is not age that matters. I know some 20 year olds that have lived more than some 90 year olds. Even the Bible says we need to number our days...

PS- Never watch BBC's Robin Hood- the ending of season two is very disappointing!

Saturday, January 1, 2011

Day 277

"The mighty man will become tinder and his work a spark;both will burn together, with no one to quench the fire.” Isaiah 1:31

Happy New Year everyone. I was out at Kristel's and we played some games, then we went to Yvi's and watched the Feuerzangenbowle. That is where they have a hot mulled wine, put a sugar cone over the bowl, pour rum on it, and light it on fire. It was pretty cool to watch. The alcohol was so strong I though I was gonna get drunk just from smelling it. We welcomed the new year there, then I came back home, and watched TV till 3 (as I was not really tired) I woke up at 8:30, but went back to sleep till 12.
