Solo Flight – Day 3

June 10, 2008

The continuing the saga of a dad and 4 kids while his wife is on a mission trip…

We survived Monday fairly well. After lunch, I created a movie theater in the basement with some old equipment I have (the projector’s native resolution is 640 x 480). Did I mention it has been so hot that the basement is the only place in the house that is tolerable during the day? The kids loved the concept and we watched “The Never Ending Story” and “Everyone’s Hero”. I had never seen TNES before and someone at church had let us borrow it. I could write a whole blog on that movie alone. 🙂

After a lovely dinner of home prepared Fish’n’Chips and salad, we went swimming for awhile. We had the neighborhood pool to ourselves for the majority of the time. My kids are all like I was at their age, loving the water and wanting to swim 24/7. They definitely have been sleeping well as a result.

We hit the pool again this morning with my dad and my niece in tow. Another good time was had by all. The youngest took to jumping into the pool from the side with a lot of help from her Opa.  Opa always brings a snack for the kids which provides a nice break for the adults.

I read all of Psalm 119 this morning.  My Bible time has been lacking lately so I thought I’d dig into the Psalm from our memory verse at church. As I read, I saw I do not measure up to the writer and his love for God’s precepts. But as I was convicted in reading the whole Psalm, I found hope at the end…

Psalm 119:169-178
t Taw

May my cry come before you, O LORD;
give me understanding according to your word.

May my supplication come before you;
deliver me according to your promise.

May my lips overflow with praise,
for you teach me your decrees.

May my tongue sing of your word,
for all your commands are righteous.

May your hand be ready to help me,
for I have chosen your precepts.

I long for your salvation, O LORD,
and your law is my delight.

Let me live that I may praise you,
and may your laws sustain me.

I have strayed like a lost sheep.
Seek your servant,
for I have not forgotten your commands.
