Monday, February 8, 2010........Day 23

Day 23 of the Fruit Fast. Working independently has its perils. But it also has its joys. One of them is being able to work from home. i had business to take care of today on various fronts. All done from home between my computer, my fax machine and my phone. i know that come March i will be hitting the road pretty hard, but being able to work leisurely from home on cold, snowy days is a good thing to me. As my wife was preparing the days school activities for our children, i was in the kitchen eating breakfast with them. i am so thankful to the Lord Christ that, although i grew up in a broken home, He has blessed me with a wonderful family. It is such a joy to be laughing with my children, sometimes they almost make me choke on my food and cry tears i laugh so much. i owe it all to the Lord Christ, in Whom we have Eternal life and eternal joy.

Psalms 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Psalms 127:2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
Psalms 127:4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Psalms 127:5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
