Juergen taught Philip's Sunday school class today. Nicole taught another class. The kids were very happy with the chocolate goodness and toys I gave them. We had a big dinner. Then the kids played outside. They are still outside (it's been 5 or 6 hours). I debated over working or resting. I rested a bit. It is a "holy day". I love Jesus everyday but I'm not very "religious". I feel pushed to get things done. I figured I would feel so much better cleaning Sarah's room. So I cleaned her room and Juergen used the upholstery cleaner to clean the sofas. It felt good to get those things done. I don't want to dishonor God by working today. But God knows my heart. I didn't disturb the neighbors by being loud. And I didn't forget God today. I just wanted to make progress...and it was relaxing to finish one more thing. Our washing machine is totally broken. It's been dying for awhile...but today it really died! So we have to buy another big machine. I wore that poor thing out! I'm sure I used it 2 or 3 times a day for 5 years straight. That's one major expense we were not counting on. This is going to be a very costly year. But anyway, I feel better I got one thing done.
