Hmm. Didn’t post all last week. Excuse I have. Had Swine Flu. Ok, not officially, but Chad brought home a letter from school June 8 stating 2 possible (but at the time) but unconfirmed cases of the swine flu. He woke up with fever next day, which he had for 3 days along with fatigue. June 10, both cases were confirmed Swine Flu. Last week, Jamie ran a fever for a couple of days, and no sooner was she over the fever, than I got a headache, followed by a sore throat. I was exhausted and generally felt like crap. Plus, stressed because my boss was on vacation and I had to be boss, and I don’t like being the boss. Happy I am that back at work is she.
Busy week again in store, because this week is VBS, and the hubby and I are actually VBS workers. Yikes! So if I don’t post anymore this week, there’s my excuse. LOL
1 Peter 3:8-18 (New International Version)
Suffering for Doing Good
8Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. 9Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 10For,
“Whoever would love life
and see good days
must keep his tongue from evil
and his lips from deceitful speech.
11He must turn from evil and do good;
he must seek peace and pursue it.

and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
13Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.” 15But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 17It is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. 18For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit,
