We took the kids to see 3 Cups of Tea today at Schwab Auditorium on the Penn State campus. it is a one person show put together by Literature to Life. It was nicely done and I think the kids received it well. We had planned to go snow tuning afterward, but the threat of thunderstorms kept us from that part of the day.
I am about to embark on the fundraising for this year's diabetes event. The JDRF has changed its focus and is now looking not only at curing diabetes in the near future, which does not seem likely, but rather emphasizing ways that people can live with diabetes and avoid the complications that are so common. I wrote a lot about these last year. Heart disease, kidney failure, amputation are some pretty heavy duty results of the failure to control blood sugars. It makes my reluctance to get out of bed and off my butt seem pretty wimpy. Just as I wrote earlier, a temporary inconvenience is way better than a permanent result.
I enjoyed teaching AWANA last night at our church. I'm not sure I do nearly as good a job as Chris, the usual teacher does, but the kids are involved and seem to be attentive. I know it is good for me to have to think about God's Word and to apply it to my own life.
Still haven't traded the power tools. Check them out on the State College, PA Craigslist if you have a notion.
Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
