Thoughts for Thursday

Today during my Bible study I explored the Titus 2 advice to women. I have read this section of the Bible repeatedly but today I was struck by a wonderful thought. I can mentor someone. There is someone who is going to be younger than me, always. As women we can be an example to someone, no matter what our age. I don't need to be "older" (by that I always meant someone with grown children, or my mom's age) I just need to be willing to help/mentor someone who is not as far along as I am. With that realization, the importance of my position as a Christian woman has just been expanded. People are watching me every day....what kind of an example am I for them????

There are a myriad of things that I probably should be doing today, but I probably won't get them done. So far I have washed our taekwondo uniforms for testing tonight, baked cookies and fixed lunch (mostly anyway). I really need to get out a couple of books and reread them so that I can finalize my school preparations so that is probably what is on the agenda for this afternoon. We are having fresh broccoli, fresh zucchini and a ham/potato casserole for lunch....yummy!

I just wanted to tell you that I really like your blog--it is nice to get to know you a little better in this way! While you are reading your school books this afternoon, I will probably be working on a couple of reviews I NEED to finish. Have a great and productive afternoon!
