I have been pressure washing this summer as kind of my own "small business". I have had enough work between pressure washing and weeding to keep me busy about 3 days a week. On the days that I can't work (simply because I don't have any jobs) I feel like a lazy pooh-head if I don't make good use of my time such as reading God's Word (always an essential), weed-eating, mowing the lawn, washing the cars, etc. Today seeing as I didn't have work I washed the cars, cleaned the bathroom and read some more of Don't Waste Your Life by John Piper.
I plan to weed at the Pitocco's tomorrow but as I arrived there this evening I found their driveway to be extremely steep. As I tried to start out in first at the bottom I ended up killing it and upon my attempt to compensate for the gas that I didn't apply in the first attempt in the second I over-reved it. There was a horrible burnt smell when I reached the top, which admittingly, still has me worried. Their son, from inside the house, thought someone was burning something. I prayed that I didn't damage anything seriously.
(The driveway was at about this angle)
On a more spiritual note I found a gem the other day in Psalm 138:2. David praises the Lord for exalting His own name and word above ALL things! God loves His own glory! What a great truth, to know that God loves that which is most glorious and most holy above all else, that is Himself! How much more then should we who are but lowly sinners be willing to risk all for the sake of exalting His holy name above everything else! Praise the Lord for His precious Word that is living and active (Hebrews 4:12)!
