Great good deeds there Donna!

Confession: I sometimes 'cannot' stand listening to my husband chew at mealtimes!
Good deed: I have been working on tolerance, and not saying/ commenting on it.
(we will sometimes listen to music in the background which helps a lot.)

Good deed: I offered to pick up and drop off my son to the airport 2 hours away!

confession: I really didn't want to take him back! So I asked my hubby to drop him back off at the airport so I didn't make a terrible crying scene and embarrass my son. He agreed.

Confession: Let's not discuss mothers..... not too fond of mine, she is very negative and critical of everything!!! Also, she never asks about my '5' children nor remembers their birthdays or Christmas. She is very self-centered.

Good deed: I do call her every week, send her cards and gifts and I make the best effort to share the gospel.

Confession: I lost my cool and shouted at my husband and of course he shouted back at me which turned into a horrible fight!!!


Deed: I whole-heartedly apologized after I prayed and asked for forgiveness. It was hard but what a burden was lifted from both of us!

Deed - Working hard this week to keep up with "House Work" so we will not have to do this weekend.
Confession - The above befits me as much as my wife so I am not sure it can count as a good deed.

Oh my..... I would LOVE to be a better witness to my children... except I never get to see them or talk to them!

But, I do send them an occasional card and put messages in that along with some cash. It is hard to witness when you text. It just doesn't feel appropriate.

You are right though... I need to witness more to the public when I can. I did witness to my physical therapist in a sneeky way just yesterday!!!

God was my guide with that one!!!

Ah, Yes, I do it too much as well, John. I worry way too much over my children and don't just let God take care of them.

They are in His hand anyways..... I raised them to let them go on their way and now I must trust in Him to lead the way. I must pray more and to seek God's wisdom.

I confess that I worry too much as well.

I will confess that I have as well been on the 'pity pot' with my own aches and pains! I will try real hard today to address the needs of others, especially my hubby's needs.

Good Deed - I have a student that is not doing very well in her college courses. I was able to talk with one of her professors that was going to drop her. Professor is going to hold off dropping her. Praying this student will be able to pull this grade up and pass this class.

Confession - My left knee and right leg has been giving me fits. Too much of my focus has been on me and not on others.

My husband was trying to help me today by killing a "spider" for me (a VERY LARGE SPIDER) ONLY he accidently hit the thing and it landed right on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well-- I jumped up and SCREAMED! And yelled at him and got very angry!!!!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Then I slammed about 50 doors and refused to talk to him for about an hour!!!!

He was only trying to help me..... emoticon After I calmed down, I said I was sorry.

He did manage to find the spider and kill the stupid thing! I am sure the neighbors must think what crazy people we are!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon (the spider is bright orange!)

Ewwwwwww!!!!! About 1 1/2 inches.

John that is awesome nice of you! Praising you-- praising God for your service!

Here is a real feel good 'deed' that I stumbled across in my Daily Bread lesson.

Two are better than one . . . . If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.—Ecclesiastes 4:9–10
In the 2016 Rio Olympics, two athletes in the 5,000-meter race caught the world’s attention. About 3,200 meters into the race, New Zealander Nikki Hamblin and American Abbey D’Agostino collided and fell. Abbey was quickly up on her feet, but stopped to help Nikki. Moments after the two athletes had started running again, Abbey began faltering, her right leg injured as a result of the fall. It was now Nikki’s turn to stop and encourage her fellow athlete to finish the race. When Abbey eventually stumbled across the finish line, Nikki was waiting to embrace her. What a beautiful picture of mutual encouragement!

It reminds me of a passage in the Bible: “Two are better than one . . . . If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up” (Eccl. 4:9–10). As runners in a spiritual race, we need one another—perhaps even more so, for we are not racing in competition with each other but as members of the same team. There’ll be moments where we falter and need someone to pick us up; at other times, someone may need our encouragement through our prayers or presence.

The spiritual race is not to be run alone. Is God leading you to be a Nikki or Abbey in someone’s life? Respond to His prompting today, and let’s finish the race! —Poh Fang Chia

The race:

Wow! I agree John-- this is very hard and very humbling.... emoticon

Yesterday I prayed and focused on being Godly to my hubby and my son who came to visit. I am a very sarcastic person and more so than I realized. But, I made it through dinner by just keeping my mouth shut and only saying something that was only nice or complimentary.

Phewwwwww..... It was hard to do, but the Lord helped. emoticon emoticon

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

This challenge is to remind us to do something every day for someone. To look outside of ourselves. This is not a bragging post because what we are able to do is only because of Christ and He in us. We are nothing but for the saving grace of God. This challenge is to spur us on to good works and willing to be accountable to others.
