This morning I had enough of the giant ant hill at the end of the garden and I poured several litres of boiling water on it and then dug it up. So now I have a giant hole in my back yard. The ant hill has been there since we moved in but just today I had it and the shock and awe campaign began.
As I finished that up I realized that the tree that my laundry line goes under had grown down and entangled itself in the laundry line. So I hacked the overhanging branches down.
A fairly destructive start to the morning.
Also in the morning I did something productive and worked on a recipe for Cornflake Marshmallow cookies that Kim B. had posted. They have to spend some time in the fridge which is where they are now. Hope they turn out well!
I finished 2 books yesterday and they both had unwrapped up endings. In "Happiness sold separately" as the story ends you don't really know how the characters are going to carry on, which direction they are going to go. In the Hanne Wilhemsen mystery, the reader seems to be able to understand who the killer is but the police convict what seems to the reader the incorrect person. And the incorrect person pleads guilty and then it ends. So that was interesting at least. Not what you expect in either case.
At Rustle, Christine asked for prayer as they found more tumors on her spine. I had been thinking about her a lot this week. If you can pray or help her out in any way as her mobility is getting more limited she would appreciate it.
Then Paul spoke and as part of his sermon used this scripture.
Galatians 5:19-21New International Version (NIV)
19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Which apparently was a bit controversial because someone wanted to know what was wrong with witchcraft. I guess it wasn't as obvious as the writer of Galatians thought!
This evening I'm hoping to watch the live stream of Kim's Church.
