I am a bit bored

I am sitting alone at home, had to print an invoice for tomorrow's party and then got sidetracked to look at the blogs. Very strange for me, I generally just go to bed at this time of night. Colin and Andrew are in Langebaan tonight. Colin and I were supposed to go up today to look after our friends son while they go out. I got confused with the dates (my diary was in hubbies car) and accidentally booked a party for tomorrow morning! I will be driving up to Langebaan after the party with Robyn and Jamie to join all of them. Apparently it is going to be a lovely day tomorrow so at least our friends can go out on their boat, alone, as we will be looking after the son. It is very sad, but they normally don't get the opportunity to go out alone as their son needs somebody with him at all times.

I was planning on putting some photos on the blog of my hubbies new car, but can't find the cable for my camera - not very good at all! He got his new silver Toyota Corolla on Wednesday and he is very chuffed with it. It is our first new car since 1990 - I guess that is enough to make anybody happy! As a result of him getting a new car, I am now driving the Mazda Etude. I am very happy as the thing has airconditioning and will be a pleasure to drive in summer!!

We spent last Sunday rearranging the garage so that the new car can fit in. Our garage is very small and it was quite funny, but at least we got rid of a lot of junk!

Anyway, my bed is calling!

You are my King

I'm forgiven, because You were forsaken
I'm accepted, because You were condemned
I'm alive and well, Your Spirit is within me
Because You died and rose again.

Amazing love, how can it be
That You my King would die for me
Amazing love, I know it's true
It's my joy to honour You
In all I do, to honour You.

You are my King
You are my King
Jesus, You are my King
You are my King.

We had an amazing time of worship at church this morning and this song really spoke to me. It is so amazing that God loves us so much that He gave us His Son so that we can have everlasting life, how sad for the people that do not believe or know Him!

It also made me realise what a big responsibility we have in showing unconditional love to others, because that is the instruction, to love others as God loves us. Not easy at all as we tend to critisize other people very easily and think that we are in some way better than them. I have learned to love my husband, children, friends and family unconditionally, but it is the "unlovable people" that are the challenge.

The truth

I finally exceptedthe fact that I am a housewife with a hobby that brings in a bit of pocket money. It took me quite a while (more than a year since our full time maid left) and I must admit that I am not very good at it. I keep on telling myself that I am supposed to do everything I do to the best of my ability (for the Lord), but I normally find some reason not to. My new decision is to stay at home 3 days a week to clean house. Not very exciting I know, but I keep on reminding myself that I want to be at home and therefor I have to do my part. And the hubby does expect me to do it anyway! I also know that I am very blessed to be able to stay at home in this wonderful economic climate, so many people out there are not that lucky! We live a pretty good life and can still go out and have fun on a regular basis and cleaning the house is not such a high price to pay for not having to work in an office!

Anyway, I know that it is a whole month since I last blogged, but I am also not much of a blogger, it just seems like such an effort to think of something to say, but I also can't see it changing anytime soon as I am sort of allergic to my computer! Will try though!
