I have had a good weekend, busy but good. I really enjoyed church this morning. We had a good sunday school lesson(this was carson’s week to teach, that always helps) this morning. We talked about doing everything as if we were doing it for The Lord. Weather it be working or witnessing or being a student or shopping for groceries, do it as if we are doing it in the name of Jesus Christ, because as christians , we are doing it for Christ. We had some good discussion from the youth. I have noticed since they have been on the mission trip they are more active in discussing the lesson as opposed to just listening. I think the trip has made a big difference in their lives, and I pray that it is a long lasting difference.
Yesterday, I had training, pressure washing training, it went pretty good. I got some pretty valuable info on what kind of accesories are needed, which ones are actually useful and which ones are wasteful spending. I asked lots of questions and they volunteered lots of stuff I hadn’t thunk of. I think my start up cost will be slightly higer than I thought but not over what I have planned to spend, I may have to wait awhile on shirts and stuff like that, but it will come. It seems to be working out pretty good. I need to keep in mind the ss lesson and pressure wash as if it is for God. I realize that if I am to be successful it will be because God’s hand is in it. If it was up to VonStegall I would have already made a mess of it.
One way of cutting expense that I have thought of is to rely on my contacts at first. Instead of putting business signs on my truck I will have some yard signs made, they cost less, and ask customers if I can put one in their yard if they are satisfied with my work, and come get it after a week and use it later. That way people in the neigborhood can see my work and see who done it and decide if they want to hire me. The signs on my truck just put my name out there, it does not show quality of work. I will try this and if I think I need truck signs I can get them later.
We had a good sermon this morning, after he wasted 10 minutes reading the announcements in the bulletin(which everyone gets a copy of and can read if they care), and after he did the spirit-quenching happy birthday crap that he does every single sunday. Once all the crap is over and we get to praise The Lord in song and hear His Word preached I think The Holy Spirit has a chance to work in the hearts of the congregation. I have been real aggravated at all of the bullcrap that goes on during the service lately mainly because I think it does quench The Spirit. Then the preacher preaches on participating in worship and when my son tries to participate I up do what I have thought the preacher does alot, I quench The Spirit. The preacher says we need to be excited to be in God’s house and we need to participate in the service and Jamie throws up his hand and says amen real loud and I tell him to stop. After I did it I realized that I should have been thankful that he was listening and was willing to participate. I guess I had better examine my own thoughts and actions before I go critizing someone else for theirs.
I guess I need to get me some lunch and go to bed, I got to go build tires for Jesus tonight. Later Dairy dude.
1 JOHN 3:12 NOT AS CAIN, WHO WAS OF THAT WICKED ONE, AND SLEW HIS BROTHER. AND WHEREFORE SLEW HE HIM? BECAUSE HIS OWN WORKS WERE EVIL, AND HIS BROTHER’S RIGHTEOUS.
I AM VONSTEGALL AND I NEED TO MAKE SURE MY WORKS ARE RIGHTEOUS AND NOT WORRY SO MUCH ABOUT CAIN’S!!!!
