His Garden of Grace
Garden Graces 1
I thought it would be a good idea to try to make a schedule for posting to you, my dear friends and readers. YIKES! You all that know me well, know that I am not at all a scheduler. I mean, I live by a sort-of schedule, only because I have to. Like I have to schedule to go to the Dr. (which I have done, since my recent unpleasantries with my intestines- it is scheduled for October 22.) And for going on vacation- well, thats a fine example of the f-l-e-x-i-b-l-e schedule I live by.
Take today, for example. If there are two scheduled things in my life you can count on, they are the two things that almost always happen on Mondays. Laundry and Pizza. Monday is (and has been for as long as I can rememeber) laundry day.And Monday night isn't football night at our house. It is Pizza Night. That started when we started visiting my sister in Ohio in the summer. Their pizza place, Smokin' Joes (dont even ask) has a one-topping special on Monday, so they always have pizza on Monday night. So when we got home from their house that year, the kids still wanted pizza on Monday night. And so it began, and it just hasn't ended. Yay! I don't have to cook!
But any other type of schedule scares me. I know it is because once I commit to something, fear causes me to think: did I make the right decision? Should I have waited? Now I have to do whatever it is that I promised I would do. So I just don't make that commitment, so I don't disappoint anyone. But mostly because I am afraid, and I don't want to disappoint myself. Or embarass myself.
But here I am. If I don't commit, I won't do it. So I decided it would be a good place to start to post two times a week. That would work because I can really only write up an article or something worth reading that often. However, I am also planning to do a "daily" short devotional or verse of the day or something, too. And maybe once every week or two do a "feature" that is longer and more involved than either of the above.
I also plan to post to my other side- the crafty, seamstress, cooker, household manager side once or twice a week as well. I hope to strike a balance and drive traffic over hear as well.
Sorry this wasn't super spiritual. Hopefully the next ones will be. So check back often.
I am curious: Am I the only one who has a difficult time with scheduling and/or commitments? I would love to hear about your struggle, or your victories. I know some people are better at it than others, and for some it comes more naturally than for others. If you are particularly good at it, give your best advice in the comments below, too. I need all the help I can get!!!!
