It snowed all day yesterday, and I was so thankful for my cozy sweater and corduroy skirt! And especially my flannel slip and leggings underneath. *grin* I wish I had a nice pair of boots (besides my cowgirl boots) to wear to church, because I certainly would have used them! But since I don't, I wear my snow boots until we get to church then change to my flats. It works. And I love my sheep pin! Isn't it cute?

I was able to focus on the sermon in church yesterday, which was great because it was a really good one! We continued in the book of John, this time focusing on how John the Baptist pointed the way to Christ. Pastor encouraged us to pray for opportunities to point the way to Christ this week, by our words and lives. To be bold witnesses for Him, and not to be held back by the fear of being rejected. It's not us they're rejecting, it's Christ. I've always had a hard time talking to people (especially strangers) about my faith because I'm a shy person. But I pray that the Lord would give me boldness this week, His boldness!
After church I talked for a long time with some friends about sheep and farming. If you know me in real life, then you know how excited I get when talking about anything to do with raising sheep and farming. There was a lot of hand waving going on while we talked, mostly from me. *grin* I ended up being late for choir practice because I was so interested in our conversation. Totally worth it!
This week, I've got jury duty to look forward to. Yay!! Or not. It's exciting to take part in my country's legal system and know that I'm helping to further truth and make a difference. But...I wish there was a way I could do that without having to actually leave my house. Haha, am I lazy or what?? The first time I was called up for jury duty, I was chosen to serve on the jury. It was actually a really neat experience, and I enjoyed it very much! We'll see how it works out this time.
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
What was your sermon about?
If you're old enough, have you ever been on an actual jury?
I want to know!
