Today’s message was titled, “I Am Salt” and the text was Matthew 5:13. Three important truths that Jesus wants us to remember are; 1) We are valuable (Genesis 1:27 & Matthew 6:26), 2) We are influential (James 1:27), and 3) We are responsible (Matthew 5:13 and Galatians 6:4-5).
I picked up my sister from work a couple of hours early and took her and her boys home. My mom and I went to a nearby store for a few things. My mom went with me to pick up my brother from work.
My brother took my sister and her boys to their doctor’s appointments (her younger two each had an appointment). She wasn’t feeling well and ended up seeing a doctor. They came here after she was done while waiting for her prescriptions to be filled. My brother took them home and then came back for my mom and me so we could go to the store to get groceries.
The doctor told my sister to stay home from work today. She had the boys stay with her. I did some laundry and hung it up outside. I read some outside in my mom’s swing.
I cleaned the pools today (trying to get them all clean so that I can put the ‘big’ pool away). My mom came home early from work, she wasn’t feeling well and was dizzy. [She’s fine now, she went to work the next day.] I read some outside in my mom’s swing.
I finished cleaning the ‘big’ pool and let all the air out of it and then later in the day folded it up. (I’m not sure what else I did, I forgot to write anything down.)
The ‘surprise’ zucchini I found today while checking on the tomatoes and zucchini (I say surprise because I didn’t see it before today). It measures about 12 inches in length and about 4 inches at it’s widest part. [The white ‘spots’ are the sun shinning through the other leaves.]
Road trip today. My parents, brother, and I went to Pontiac, Illinois to see some of the museums they have there (one about route 66). We rode on a trolley they have and saw some of the town. We were celebrating my parents anniversary (which is tomorrow-August 18th). We ate lunch there and saw some more of the town then drove (on route 66) to a couple of other towns. We stopped at one of the towns to get something to drink then stopped at a state park and another park on our way home.
