I want to blog more regularly and I'm trying to consider what I'd like to post on Mondays. I'm thinking maybe if I come up with a format it will help me to start the week out with a post. I've tried posting about my weekends as a lot of you do and that's good, but so many times my weekends are pretty quiet and I've taken no photos (maybe I just need to get better about taking pictures), so there's not much to share. Sometimes, I do the currently post and I enjoy those, but I'm thinking maybe I'll do like a combination of those and other things and just make it a bit of this and that. Maybe that's what I'll call it. I don't know if the Currently posts actually belong to someone. So if it does, please let me know, because I sure don't want to infringe on anyone else's ideas.
So right now it's 34 degrees with blue skies and sunshine, and it's supposed to get up to 50 degrees, which should make it nice for an early evening walk with my dog.

I'm at church today with hubby and I've made myself a little nook or office in a room that hasn't been used for anything but some storage since my youngest used it to do her online schooling... she's 27 now, so it's been empty for awhile. lol I'm loving in coming in once or twice a week and doing some stuff for hubby and taking care of some things I've always wanted to do and now have time for here at church. I also work on my blog and upcoming Women's Spring Bible Study. I get less distracted here than at home, where I keep seeing tasks I need to do and the dog wants attention, etc. Anyway, here's a picture of what it looks like so far. The stuff on the wall was from when my daughter was here, so I'm leaving them and I have some things I hope to add. But mostly, I'm trying not to spend much money and just use what I have. I love my little borrowed space.

I need to get him to start playing again.
I've worked a couple puzzles in the last week and I finished a series I've been reading and actually started a new book.
Hubby is currently preaching a series entitled Conversations With Jesus and I'm really enjoying them. Yesterday he spoke about Jesus' encounter with the man in the tombs from Mark 5:1-17. It was such a good message and the 3 lessons he drew from this encounter is:
1. You often have to reach the point of total desperation before you will run to Jesus for help.
2. You've got to be willing to name your demons.
3. Your greatest mission field is right where you live.
If you'd like to hear, he recorded it earlier last week and it's on YouTube at https://youtu.be/wAbTdyQNnNM. I can't seem to get the link to work, so I'll just enbed it here.
Well, this is a start anyway on Bits of This and That, but I probably should end this and get to reading some blogs and then get on with some things I need to do for here at the church. So thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day.
I love it! That you're finding your new blog groove - & that you have a little space to get away from all the distractions to have fun writing!ReplyDelete
This was a great way to start the week...I like your "bits of this and that". I often do the same thing, but it doesn't have any formal format or rules. Just a little of this and that. Hey...it's your blog...do you want you want to do!! That's what blogs are for!! I love your little space in the church. That's so nice to have a little getaway spot where you can think and plan and do whatever you feel needs to be done. And I am sure your hubby appreciates any help you can give. Does he not have any secretary or office staff? Do you have Sunday bulletins, etc.? I used to help my hubby with that in some of our smaller churches where we didn't have any other helpers. I always enjoyed being involved in our church planning, etc. It's all a part of the ministry. I'm glad you are a part of yours!! It's such a blessing to be able to serve the Lord! Have a wonderful week!! Stay warm!ReplyDelete
I think that is nice that you are going into the church office. Good for you. I put the video into my YouTube account to watch later. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Your 'new' nook looks inviting, for sure. Every now and then I struggle to get in a regular (posting) groove. Perhaps that's natural, but it sure feels uncomfortable at the time! Since my first post in 2008, I've reinvented the way I post a couple times. What's that they say? A woman's perogative! LOL.ReplyDelete
Cathy - I really enjoyed your post - your bits of this and that - this evening! A nice was to start the week...like a chat with a friend. I like your borrowed space and I'm sure your hubbie enjoys having you around as well. So nice to serve in the ministry together!! What will you be doing for your spring Bible study? Do you create it yourself or use a printed study? Have a great week!!ReplyDelete
A great start to you getting back to more regular posts! I enjoyed seeing your little alcove office and am glad you have a space there to call yours! Have a good week!! xoReplyDelete
I enjoy these sorts of posts because this is the way most of us live. Mostly ordinary days which are so relatable. I'm glad you found a nook. I focus best in my office although the view out my window has been known to distract. No laundry to look at or kitchen counters to see so that does help.ReplyDelete
