Homekeeper's Journal ~ 17

What’s happening in my home...

In my kitchen… we enjoyed Asian chicken last night! YUM!  Grilled pork chops are on the menu, but I don't if we'll have them today or tomorrow.  Rod wants to take the kids to the Chattanooga Football (soccer) game tonight. 

With our marriage… spent a couple of hours one-on-one with Rod this week.  Nothing exciting, but we had numerous things to talk about and decisions to make.  Even though it wasn't a romantic walk, I enjoy all the time we get to spend together minus the kids.  Rod, Happy Father's Day!

With the children… Melissa is home from camp; Matthew was offered a part in "Dearly Departed" and is walking on air; Michael is looking forward to Boy Scout camp... countdown - 8 days!

Around the homestead… I enjoyed a really good thunder storm today.  I stood on the porch and watched the storm.  I love thunder storms!

In my “Inner Man”…. keeping up with my Bible study, praying all through the day. I find myself fighting off mild depression these days. I don’t want to give in.

What is your Inner Man? In 2 Corinthians 4, Paul gives us a clue about what he means when he says “the inner man." In that scripture he says, "Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day." (4:16 NASB). So for Christians even though there is something about us that is getting old, decaying and deteriorating and dying..there is also something about us that is growing, becoming more alive, richer and stronger every day we live and follow Christ. That is what Paul calls our “inner man.”
