Hello!!! What an exciting new thing to come our way. This week’s blog will be just an overview of what to look for in the future ones.
I do plan on updating every Tuesday. Check it out!!. I will be blogging about life in general, as it happens. It will be for everyone, however if it is a specific blog geared for middle or high schoolers, I’ll let ya’ll know.
Now I want to know what you guys want to be reading. I’m not just writing because I like to talk… which I do. I’m writing to give you something(hopefully good) to read!! What are things you are looking for from me?? I am ready and willing to change topics, formats etc etc to quench your reading thirst. E-mail them to me, facebook, or comment on this blog.
I will blab about whatever strikes me as worthy for the week. The cherry on top will be our quick weekly devotional; meant intentionally to bring you closer to God, and those close to you (your friends, family, family-friends, friend’s family, family’s pet etc…)
YOUTH: We can touch on the hard hitting topics that everyone is concerned about…. School, homework, boys, girls, sports, music, faith, praying, insecurities, making and keeping friends, living out God’s work, saying NO to a ‘DO IT’ world, texting, youtube-ing, facebook, connecting, and best of all YOU!
ADULTS: What do you want to hear? What are things you have questions about? What do you want to read?
Don’t ever be hesitant to ask me something, or talk to me. I LOVE talking (I tend to ramble a bit, which you’ll all find out…wait, am I rambling now?? Oh dear, I don’t know how I get off on such different topics. Anyone else have that problem? One minute talking about birds, then the next it’s the new I-pad, and then its shoes! Ok, I caught myself.) Sorry about that! I do tend to wander from the main topic…. Now what were we talking about?
Ahhhh yes, TALK TO ME!! Hang out! Come visit me in my office- I LOVE LOVE LOVE to get out of the office! We’ll meet for coffee, or soda, or whatever it is you guys drink these days, Redbull?? Yikes!
Ok, I’ll leave you with a thought, a prayer, and hopefully I’ll see you again!
Our world is busy, even my blog is a little crazy (a little?) but there are so many missed opportunities to connect with ourselves, our loved ones, friends, and our God. Our awesome and perfect God.
What in your world right now, is something you can let go of. What is something you want to let go of, but have a hard time doing so?
Is it that grudge you’re holding onto? That anger inside of you that boils up anytime someone bumps your arm? What about an hour?
Maybe an hour is too long. What about 10 minutes? Do you have 10 minutes to spend away from your phone, facebook, homework, or tv, to just BE.
That’s it just BE.
Be with God.
It is amazing how easy your day can calm down and make sense when you spend 10 minutes breathing, and clearing your mind. It is almost impossible with all of today’s distractions but I challenge each of you to try.
Lord, I ask you today to take all that is weighing me down and lift it off my shoulders. Help me to see what 10 minutes can do. Help me to clear my mind and focus on you. I thank you for all that I have today, and I give thanks that in an ever moving world you are a solid rock to cling to. Thank you for letting me just BE. Amen.
