I realize that we’re no longer put to death for not keeping the Sabbath. That ended with grace. However, unlike most Christians, I still believe that God considers ALL TEN of the Ten Commandments part of a good code to live by. I don’t pretend to keep it 100%, but I do what I can without constantly fussing with the missus, who’s a normal Nine Commandment Christian.
So, today we went to Chinamart, then came home and pieced around for dinner and supper, since I’d bought us a breakfast sandwich while at the store. After going online a while, I took a nap. There were some things that I would like to have tinkered on when I got up, but I no longer work on the Sabbath, so I did a little scripture reading and a little reading in Halley’s Bible commentary. I’m not making much headway on Revelation, since Halley’s and my study Bible gets so wordy about it. I sort of wonder if they really know any more than anyone else does on the matter, though.
The missus wanted to go for a little drive before supper-time, so I took her. It’s supposed to be raining tomorrow afternoon, so I thought it best to get out today. I stopped at the cemetery on the way home and picked up the flowers and flag on Dad’s grave. I figured that it was better to do it today when dry than when raining tomorrow.
The Mighty Dachshund and I sat on the porch from 7:30 to 8 this evening. I’ve started keeping a small water bowl out there and giving her water from the bottle of cold water that I normally take outside when we go. She expects it now, and drank more of the half-liter bottle than she left for me!
Afterwards, I called Mom and got her grocery list for tomorrow; then I went back online a while. I’d probably watch a little TV if I had the one set up in my bedroom, but I used the money that might have bought me a box for it this month to have the data saved from my old laptop. I hope they get it done soon, as I’d like to consolidate my files on this one with what was on the old one, before I get too much more on my new one.
I hope you folks had a pleasant day. Copyright 2018
