Saturday was a different sort of Saturday. I got Jessie up at 7:00am. We ate breakfast and read Bible. I worked on the floors. Jessie read history books. Jessie practiced violin. We blew off a bicycle. We went to Menards. We did a lot of housekeeping chores. We put a light up in the pantry. We put the new light up in the laundry area. The laundry and workshop area need wired to a switch. We went to Lowe’s and got a longer part for the kitchen light. We re-installed the light, shortening the chain in the process. We switched the toggle switches in the dining room and kitchen. The original kitchen switch was a dimmer. So, the new light fixture in the dining room is now on a dimmer. We took the stroller and Crazy Coupe to storage. We went to Toys R Us to measure Jessie for a bicycle. Right now, she has a tricycle. We sorted through four tubs of clothes that Jessie will grow into. But, all in all, the main theme of the day was not the house or Jessie.
On a different note, Jessie’s new Bible came. It’s her first, real Bible. She adores it. She reads along with me when we read in the morning and evening. She reads along during the sermon in church. I catch her reading her Bible during free moments of time. There have been gratifying moments in this nine-month sojourn, but none more gratifying than seeing Jessie reading her Bible. Spoiler alert: To get free postage on the Bible, I got the next book Jessie and I will be reading after Anne. I got Jessie the first volume of Elsie Dinsmore. The Elsie series is about 6,572 volumes long and will last Jessie until she’s about 969 years old. Of course I’m exaggerating, but only slightly.
Day 284 ended with Bible and prayer.
Blessings: Hearing Jessie tell other people about her new Bible. Seeing Jessie read her new Bible. Dear Lord, help me not to ruin this small child’s natural desire to know You through Your Word.
