12 February 2013 RPD
In Westminster Abbey there is a big, dark, solid-wooden, hard-seated chair. It doesn't sound glorious when I describe it like that and in some ways it's not. But that chair has been the seat on which the kings and queens of England have been crowned. Neither the chair, the office nor the function are paramount, rather who is sitting on the chair. Especially back in the days, when the reigning monarch actually ruled the affairs of the day.
Who is on your throne? Or put differently, who fulfills the office of boss? To whom do you pay homage? If you are not sure, ask yourself this follow up question: what things in your life will you sacrifice the most for? I suggest the answer indicates the occupier of your throne. If you claim Jesus as Lord of your life, be sure to enthrone him on your chair.
As I type this RPD my countdown says 146 days, 8 hours, 54 minutes and 2 seconds until Marie and I tie the knot in Shelton, Washington.
We have booked our tickets and will be in Washington from June 22 til July 16.
Marie arrived last week and there are two happy people in the universe again. I have a busy week at school with parent information night, pancake day, swimming carnival and I need to have a week's worth of lessons ready for the teacher who will look after the class while Marie and I are in NZ for our family reunion. We are thoroughly looking forward to the break as well as Marie meeting the remainder of my family. Please pray for Marie's work visa. The Australian Immigration Department have given her the run around and it seems have shown themselves to be confusing, unclear and a little incompetent at reading. I guess that means you should pray for me teaching the current generation to read and be functioning members of society. Moreover pray that my life and my teaching will point students to Christ.
KIDS CLUB AND LIVEWIRE
After having only four children at our first week of kids club, 18 children on the second week was a big change. Praise God and pray for the leaders and children. We learned that Jesus is the light of the world and can show us what God is like because he came from God.
Straight after kids club we have a short break and a bit to eat and it’s time for Livewire with high school students. I enjoy interacting with teenagers and Marie was certainly well received too.
· Place Jesus on the throne of your heart
· Pray for Marie's work visa to be granted
· Pray for class 2M and Mr Miller at PHCS
· Pray for Kids Club and Livewire
· Thank God for a family holiday.
Angela for bringing Marie to school to interrupt my day last Thursday.
