With Cream And Sugar, Please

It seems only fitting that I can parallel my current Bible study with life application; even in a little, funny, everyday- kind-of-way.

I am currently doing a study on the book of James.  And I am even working on memorizing the book of James.  So far I know 12 verses.  I have a long way to go!  But the first part is all about PERSEVERANCE!  We have been praying for perseverance finish the school year strong.  Here is a part of the Scripture I am memorizing...

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.  Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

Yesterday was the last day of school.  I got up early.  I took my shower.  I came upstairs to make some coffee.  I got the coffee going and headed to the office to check my email.  And then I went back to the kitchen to get that first piping cup of yummy goodness.


Somehow the coffee didn't go into the pot. But all over the kitchen counter, down the dishwasher, INTO the dishwasher, and across the floor...
Wow.  That didn't go as planned.
Just last Saturday I sat down and scrubbed this grout in my kitchen...painstakingly.
Funny, re-cleaning the kitchen floor, counter, and dishwasher WASN'T on my list of things to do at 6:15 in the morning on the last day of school!  Call me CrAzY!

But instead of getting mad...I grabbed the camera!  AGAIN!  And laughed in my head at the fun blog post I would be able to put together while I, yep, you guessed it, cleaned the kitchen!

And I drank coffee all day long.  : )

Some day I will be mature and complete...not lacking anything!  Thank you, Jesus!
