Post Lenten Post 🙄

Hello, and welcome back! It sure is good to break the silence! As you may know, for Lenten season I stopped writing, posting, watching daytime TV (especially political news) and spent the time in relative silence. When hubby was home-I DID watch TV but also spent time reading, reflecting and renewing my spirit.  Truly there is much to be said for being still and surrounding ones self with silence!
Sadly, the noise of everyday living, at least for me, can often muffle God’s voice. While I can’t say I ever heard an audible – well, prayer and Scripture reading and journaling granted me a bit of clarity and guidance going forward in this year.  Most of all, this time away gave me the “R’s” – Repentance, Renewal, Revival, Reflection and last but not least Resurrection!

There is much to be said for sitting and just musing at the snow, praying,  thinking out loud…. and yeah… I admit I sometimes respond to my own questioning 😊!

Anyway, some things I’ve come up with:

I need/want to re-design the entire AWM site while maintaining this blog. I will start requesting guest bloggers. If you want to write a post-email me ( servant1@abidingways.org ). I’m open to most any topic having to do with biblical topics including social justice and Bible literacy as well as series or group of posts on any subject. Just send me a sample and maybe we can work together!

On Thursday we will begin the chapter by chapter exploration of Romans.  Want to catch  up? Re-read these: Intro Part One Part Two

Hope to see you then! Oh… and Happy Easter Monday! He is risen INDEED!


Hope you'll share with others!

The Hurrier I Go…

I am so very sorry for being out of commission for the past couple of weeks.  We have a new family member who has kept me pretty busy and away from you all!

Add to that, the holiday preparation is ON… and tomorrow is the first night of Chanukah around here.  While we don’t go all out, I do get out the menorah, shine it up and light the candles for eight days. It’s also when I add the holiday touches around the home place.

We don’t celebrate big around here. My beloved unbeliever aka “the Grinch of Shearwater” is not big on Christmas OR Chanukah. So I celebrate on my own and set out a few favorite decorations.

My grandson may also be hanging out here over the coming weekend and Chester has his first vet appointment! Yes, the new addition is another fur baby! 

And so, with all this happening I have yet to sit down and write the second part of the super-mini overview of Romans.

However, it IS coming! I just wanted to check in with you and let you know what’s up. I have also been considering my goals and vision for the coming year and for this blog. It’s scary because I’ve already been given my “One Word” for this year! Stay tuned for that one!

I do want to thanks all of you who check in here. I hope to re-do my social media availability and welcome any suggestions!  Enter in the comments.

In the meantime…

Hope you'll share with others!

Adventures in Computing (-and an apology)

To those who have become frustrated waiting for the next post about studying Romans-I am SO SORRY!!!

After what I thought was a routine update, I restarted as requested and well, my desktop decided to go into a never-ending loop of “Automatic Repair”.  After trying an abundance of potential fixes, the last thing to do was the dreaded format c:\  and a total re-install of Windows, applications and all those things that we need on our computers for living the life!

Fine-so here I am on my laptop now while I need to do it all again!!! Because— at first I thought it was a bad program I installed, and hadn’t thought about it being the updates at all!

Again, please forgive… the best part is that laptop IS working well enough until such time as I get things working again.

Remember this… GOD has it, no matter what the trial may be.

Hope you'll share with others!
