Yesterday I watched war movies while I mended. War movies fill me with gratitude. I’m grateful our cities and countryside have not been bombed. I’m grateful we never had to leave our homes. I’m grateful we never wondered where we would find food.
In the middle of my sewing, God told me to sew on Laura’s quilt in the evenings. Working in the evenings is something David feels is important, too.
Today was his day off. He’s been repairing our shed. He wondered if he should work on it today or keep working on it during the evenings and do another project. I reminded him we did not want the doors off of it overnight.
He repaired the doors, painted that side, and the side he repaired this week and installed new hardware. It will take several more evenings to repair the other two sides and finish painting it.
1 Thessalonians 5:5, 6, “You are all the sons of light and the sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep as others do. But let us be alert and sober.” Modern English Version
Paul not only talked about working while it was light, he led by example. Acts 18:3, 4 tells us Paul worked as a tentmaker with Aquila and lectured in the synagogue every Sabbath. In the evenings he wrote letters, Galatians, Ephesians, etc. and spoke about Christ in whatever house he was staying, see Acts 18:8.
We shouldn’t waste these extra hours of light this month!
