I can’t believe Uncle Matt has been with us for just over a week. It’s been so much fun. I know Mum was worried about money, but I think things are going to be OK. He says he has managed to keep a few students from Poland that he can teach on-line, so he can help Mum out with the food bill. The boys are loving having him around, and it means that Mum is getting more rest. She and I don’t mind sharing a room. (Although last night I woke her up because I was reading under the covers. I love reading!)
My cousins phoned today after school. They live in Scotland, and tomorrow they’ll go into Lockdown (I think it’s called Level 4 up there). They are pretty cheesed off with it, but I was able to help them out, because we are already half way through ours.
Going to school makes everything seem almost normal, which is nice, although we have put the idea of having a band on hold. We seemed to spend all our time disagreeing. Everyone seems a bit grumpier right now, and more argumentative (spelling word from last year!). I think everyone is tired of following the rules and we all just want this to be over.
The verse for yesterday, which I read out loud many times, is from 2 Corinthians 4:16:
“So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.”
I love the idea of God using every day, even when it looks like everything is crazy. I love that He is working in my heart to make something beautiful!
