Check out the advanced flipping technique... it's all the rage here...

Lessons learnt!

This week has been another long one. There seems to be so much to do and no time to do it! I ended up doing the things that have needed doing for a long defrosting the freezer and reorganising the basement...
Who will notice that?
~I realised how much I like the praise and feedback when something has been done, to have everyone around and not a comment made about my 3 hours work was a bit discouraging!
I did let them know what I had been doing so they could admire it and say how much better things looked.

Made me think about what I am doing here...with the work I am trying to do... with the choir... the ladies meetings...the Sunday school...the language learning...

Why am I doing it?
Who am I doing it for?
What do I want as a result of it?

To be honest, there is a big ME element in some of them, I love doing what I am doing, but at times the focus is a bit fuzzy. It really is for the glory of God and to further His kingdom. I want to be able to say like Paul...

1Co 10:33 just as I try to please all men in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.

My challenge is to do something just to please God, to be a witness to others and to store up my treasures in heaven.

Have a great weekend, thank you for the encouragements and prayers.
