So, even though our summer is going to be shorter than normal we are already filling it up with lots of fun!
Next year I will have one in kindergarten, 1st grade, 11th grade and.... A SENIOR! Whew! Am I ready for this? I also have my college guy working on his correspondence. So, we have lot of plans for summer relaxing fun, because next school year will be busy!!

In the center of my Bible I have some notes from a message I heard preached about this passage.
~Expect to be mistreated at some time.
~Anticipate feelings of revenge.
~Resist those feelings
~Refuse to fight in the flesh.
~Forgive. (Only with God's Help is this possible!)
Forgiveness Brings Victory, Bitterness Enslaves Us.
Romans 12:17-21 Is the perfect companion passage to this thought.
Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Many candles were lit and romantic piano music was playing. There was a side table with coffee and hot tea.
It was a wonderful evening spent with my love. As Patrick prayed for our meal tonight, he thanked God for the 21 years He has given us together and said he can't wait to spend the next 21 with me. I truly am blessed.
