Every part of my week

Well this was certainly a long week. Some weeks are longer than others. Why is it that when stuff happens or things get crazy it seems to drag the week out? Then of course the weekend flies by like it's coming off a sling shot. I cant believe I have to work in the morning again already! Hopefully this week will be less eventful at school. Maybe a week with no drug dogs, no federal or state observers, and no resignations. Maybe even some education happening. That would be great. Just a thought. I am still enjoying my memorization with Beth Moore. This week my verse is Deuteronomy 6:5-7 Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down, and when you get up. I love this verse. First of all I think it is neat that it says to love God with all your strength. Ever noticed how some days we have more strength than others. We are to love God with what we have at that moment. God loves us with all that He is, but He is God, and we are not. We love him and praise Him and worship Him. We do. Some days though we feel weaker than others and on those days too, we are to love Him with all our strength. I think it is neat how this reminds us how important loving our Lord is. It is so important that we teach our children how to love Him with all their strength, great or small. I always laugh a little at the part that says talk about them while you sit at home. Like I am sitting at home eating bon bons. Or in Averys case here, birthday cake!

Anyway I know this is telling us, that He is to be in every part of our lives. Not just the church part, every part. At home, on the street leaving the home, (What sweeter feet to walk on a road with than these.)
At the end of the day,

and the beginning of the day. Jesus is in every single part. Thank God that He is in every part of my life, for how would I make it without Him. I wouldn't, that's how.

I hope it is too. Cari was telling us yesterday about the drug dogs...I guess that is quite stressful. I commented on facebook. Were the basketball photos taken with my lens? Just wondering.
