I'm wearing an apron this morning. I have yet to find or sew the perfect apron but this one that I made several years ago is working pretty well. I'm also trying a new system for getting this done. I work hard on one task for 5-10 minutes and then give the kids some attention for a few minutes (get Enzo a new toy, give Ruby some more peanut butter, the usual) and then I tackle the next 10 minutes. I don't always get 10 minutes but sometimes I get 15 and if I work hard for that time then while Enzo takes his morning nap and Ruby plays I'm able to have a cup of coffee and read the Bible rather than feel like I've gotten nothing done.

I'm continuing reading in 2 Peter. I thought last night and this morning again about my struggles but also about idols. Things I think about more often than I think about Jesus. Most of the time it's me and my plans like I've talked about. The verses today tell me that i should think about Jesus and focus on being fruitful and serving Him.

We all know that a negative attitude never helps our days go better and that worrying doesn't make things go smoother it just makes us feel worse. That's the case because it's not how God designed things. If we think about positive things and remember that the reason is because God gave us Jesus so that we may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. (2 Peter 1:4b)

2 Peter 1:5-8 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness,and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
