Rancho Santa Marta '99
Thursday, March 4, 1999
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
No paguen a nadie mal por mal. Procuren hacer lo buino delante de todos. Si es posible, en cuanto dependa de ustedes, vivan en paz con todos. No tomen venganza, hermanos mios sino den lugar a la ira de Dios, porque esta escrito: :A mi me conrresponde la venganza; yo pagare", dice el Senor. Al contrario: "Si tu enemigo tiene hambre, dale de comer; si tiene sed, dale de beber. Obrando asi, haras que sienta verguenza por su conducta." No te dejes vencer por el mal, sino vence con el bien el mal.
Rooster crows at 5:00 a.m. Devotions with Rancho Santa Marta Staff at 5:45 a.m.
Kaye Lawrence & Bob Moorhead lead devotions: "Tenga un dia bendicito!" "Have a blessed day!"
After breakfast, the TEAM is ready to work on the interior of a new classroom building; more work in the orchard; more sewing, more work on the Chapel, and more meals to prepare for the TEAM.
More Sewing: Almost Finished. Orchard: So many trees, so little time!
A Carpenter's Work is Never Done:
At 5:00, we all quit for the day, expect Dan -- he quit at 4:55. Everyone enjoyed the day, although Olivia did have to drive Arlin to San Diego because of his "Chest Pains".
Tomorrow we FINISH the interior of the new Classroom Building and FINISH painting the trim on the Chapel. We had GORGEOUS weather today--same as yesterday. Bob, was that FOG or RAIN at 6:00 a.m. this morning?
