18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of  the trumpet, and the mountain smoking. And when the people saw it, they backed up and stood far off.

19 And they said to Moses, “Speak thou with us, and we will hear, but don't let  God speak with us, or we'll die!”

It was God's intention to bring the people up to the mountain to have a personal relationship with Him. The people chose to be too afraid to do this and told Moses they would rather have him as an intermediary.

15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 

16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

15 So, should we keep sinning because we are not under the law, but under grace? Of course not!

12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

12 So, don't let sin rule your physical body, obeying its passions.

The New Testament "Ups the Anti" It raises the standard. Lust is equal to adultery, as is divorce.

Matthew 5:28 “But I say to you, That whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.”

Luke 16:18 - Whoever divorces his wife, and marries another, commits adultery, and whoever marries her that is divorced from her husband commits adultery.

Matthew 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, "Thou shall not commit adultery."
28 But I say to you, That whoever shall divorce his wife, except for the cause of [the misuse of sex, adultery], causes her to commit adultery. And whoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery.

11 For in six days the I AM made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day, and so the I AM blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.

God could have created the universe in one second if He wanted to. Or He could have taken billions of years. But the book of Genesis clearly says He took six days and rested the seventh.

Does God need physical rest? No, of course not. He did this as an example of what He wanted us to do. He designed us to need this day per week of rest.

The New Testament tells us that Jesus is our Sabbath. We are to rest in Him, cease from our work of trying to earn salvation, saving ourselves through Christ instead. The entire Sabbath day rest was an object lesson for the salvation offered by Christ.

What about all the Old Earth theories? The ones that say Genesis wasn’t telling the truth?

These theories (evolution, Day Age, Gap Theory) that make the universe billions of years old totally destroy this entire object lesson of the Sabbath. They make it meaningless.

When God says here “in six days the I AM made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day:” He meant six days as we know them. No more. No less.

No. No you don't. You send them off to someone else to supervise. Some one else who has a janitor to clean up after them.

Exodus 20:6 And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My commandments. 

The consequences of serving God also last up to four generations. I am still reaping the benefits of my God-fearing great-grandparents, in fact.

It is interesting that in my nutrition class in college the teacher told us that a mother’s nutrition before she ever even got pregnant would affect her grandchildren! How healthy a woman is when she gets pregnant determines how healthy her child will be, if that child will have the basic building blocks she needs to in turn produce a healthy child. I find it interesting that science is reaffirming God’s statement here that what we choose now will affect up to four generations later, and how much more affect spiritual things will have than merely physical!

19 For just like by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One shall many be made righteous. 

20 But the law was given so that sin would abound (be made more visible). But where sin (is more visible), grace (undeserved favor) is even more abundant (even more visible).

(And herein is the dilemma of all Bible translators; do you translate word for word with adjustments for grammar, or do you translate the meaning? This verse translated literally from the Greek reads like the King James. That is an accurate translation, even accounting for modern grammar. However, taking the entire scripture into account, "abound" should be "made visible.")

Hubby took the day off yesterday and we rode a train. 

First, we woke up at 4:30 and drove to Reno to catch a Greyhound. The bus station only allows 2 hour parking, so we parked in a public parking lot a couple blocks away and hoofed it.

After a lovely ride to Sacramento on the bus, we had 1 1/2 hours to get from the bus station to the train station 1 1/2 miles away. I am impressed we walked it in 30 minutes! Most of the kids and I walk around the block before school most days, about a mile in 26 minutes, but Hubby and the boys with jobs aren't used to that. I think we were able to go so much faster because Sacramento is pretty flat, while we live on the side of a hill.

A small rest, and then instead of waiting for the shuttle, we walked from the station to the boarding area.

On the train, we walked from the last car to the snack bar 3 cars away, and back.

Such a beautiful ride! We drive the highway that sort of parallels tracks a couple times a year and the view is world-class-beauty. It's just gorgeous!

The train tacks a slightly different path through Donner's pass that is even more beautiful.

The kids had a blast and Hubby (a serious train fan, as well as a travel-the-western-US buff) got see things he has never seen in his life. It was a day to remember, for sure!

The train station was about 3 large blocks from where we parked, so we had walk after the ride.

This all added up, according to my pedometer app, to 3.3 miles of walking.

When a word ends in the symbol/phonogram "a" it says /aw/ (in my accent), the same sound in "father" and "water."

2 “I am the I AM thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 

Deuteronomy 5:6 I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery.

This is something I have done for a long time. It really does make the whole house seem cleaner.

Weekly Home Blessing

  • Take all the trash out of the house (which we do every day, not weekly)
  • Change the sheets (Everyone is responsible for their own bed except my 6yo who is too short to reach his loft bed well enough to make it. Done)
  • 10 minutes feather dusting the house (bought a cheapy feather duster. We have enjoyed using it, and, yes, it just moves the dust around. But it knocks it off onto the floor where I can vacuum it up. So, I  will budget in to buy FlyLady's $25 one.)
  • Shine the windows and door glass (Takes less than 10 minutes in my house.)
  • Recycle magazines and catalogs (Which I do through out the week, tossing after just a day or two in the house)
  • Vacuum the middle of the floors (needs to be done daily, or minimum every other day, in our house. 11 people in 1400' home with no sidewalks [just dirt around the entry] just has too much dirt to wait a whole week)
  • Quick mop the kitchen and bathrooms (You know, I think this may need to be done daily too, at least in the kitchen and dining room)

"You are not behind. Just jump in where you are."

"Your house didn't get this way overnight. It won't get under control in a day. It takes time."


How about you? What's on your list today?

Do you use a feather duster? Do you like it? 


Have a great day!
