It has been way too long since I have written on here. Since I was reading some other peoples blogs, I decided to ramble a little bit myself.
Nick and I are getting ready to leave for Australia. Its crazy how quickly time has passed!! We only have 4 weeks until we get on that plane. I am very excited and somewhat apprehensive as well. I cannot wait to see that gorgeous country! But at the same time...I'm a worrywort. I worry that we will get mixed up in the airport, our bags won't clear or will get lost, something will be wrong with our tickets...the list could go on. I try to remind myself that everything will be ok but that doesn't seem to help too much. Not thinking about it helps.
In Aussie I am going to do a teen girls class one Sunday. I am not really sure what to expect or how to prepare. So I enlisted to the services of the girls here. I gave them all the assignment to tell me what they would want to hear a lesson on, directed at them personally. Two of them gave me the same answer and a third was similar. So, alas my topic was chosen. And ironicly it is one that I need just as much as they do so I believe this will be a very profitable study. However, it is daunting to realize that you are going to teach a class to someone on a subject that you really need someone to teach to you! So here is the topic- (topic..not title. I stink at titles.) How to evangelize, staying true to God and yourself. Easy enough, right? Ha! But it will be good. I'm looking forward to it. I think my first two points might be 1. Know what you believe and 2. Stand up for what you believe. I mean after all...how can we teach others if we aren't sure what we believe or if we are compromising? Anyway, thats just the start.
Another lesson I am working on is How Women Can Help Build a Strong Church. To be honest, this has been a great study for me! I've enjoyed it so much. I think there is soooo much more work to do before I am done though. I might post what I have so far on here and see if I get some feedback though.
Max has been sick again. He is the sickliest dog...its frustrating since no one seems to know whats wrong with him. Vets sure do charge a lot to tell you they don't know. Maybe thats what I should do...go into business giving people answers. "Come to me with your problems, questions, and concerns! I charge by the word, your word count and mine. There is also a service charge for replying. There is also a processing fee. I also charge you for whatever advice I give you, should that incur additional products or services." And then of course...78.4% of the time, my answer will be "I don't know but try..." After all...I didn't go to school for this!
Okay, thats all I feel like writing about now. But I think I am going to get back into doing this. Its kinda therapeutic. Is that spelled right?
