Tonight, we had Session 2 of our Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University.
You might recall from previous posts that Marc and I are co-leading (or co-facilitating) this class with friends Joel and Kendall and Eric and Karla.
We discussed relating with money and how good money management can help a marriage. We also discussed teaching children about money and the importance of work and earning a living...GOOD AND IMPORTANT STUFF!
A couple verses stuck out to me this week....They're great verses to pray.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:2-3
For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat." 2 Thessalonians 3:10
Here are a couple of darker photos from this evening -- they were taken during the video section of our class.
And as for Luke....He has done much better today. He's actually been picking at his left ear -- something I haven't really noticed until today. He hasn't had a fever today at all. I did skip my Tuesday morning Young Moms' Bible Study -- which I was VERY bummed about, but that's part of being a parent. I did, obviously, make it to the Dave Ramsey class this evening. PRAISE God on that one.
The challenging part of today was that Luke, all of a sudden, decided to act "toddlerish" today. Yep, we had some fits...We've had them before but not as many as today. I couldn't decide if he was a) tired of being cooped up as I am, b) still didn't feel real well, or c) simply acting like he's 18 months old.
The good part of the day was meeting my friend Andrea and her two girls, Ava and Marin, at McDonald's. Because we virtually NEVER go to McDonald's, it actually tasted pretty good. It was fun to have lunch with Andrea, and Luke LOVES to be around Ava.
In fact, here's Luke watching Ava in their car as they were backing out. He was sad to leave.
(And, you'll notice he doesn't have a coat on even though it was rather chilly outside today...That would be because as I was trying to get his coat and hat on in McDonald's, a fit occurred. We were making way toooooo big of a scene. I simply needed to get out for my own sanity).
We're praying for an even better day tomorrow. Oliver and Lily come over tomorrow, and hopefully, that'll be fun for all!
A trip back in time
