Talk-to-Myself-Tuesday, March 20, 2012

My family says I talk to myself, but I prefer to think of it as thinking outloud! But either way, here’s what I’ve been saying.


– Spring usually isn’t my favorite season, but since it’s warm and not soggy & rainy, I’m lovin’ it!

– When a person is taking part in a church service, walking slooowly does NOT make you more spiritual, just more noticeable. Just be yourself.

– Also, when you must get up for some reason during a church service, we can STILL see you when you’re ducking your head & bending over.

– The tribe of Levi in the Old Testament had a lot of extra duties, but extra rewards (maybe I’ll blog about that sometime!)

– Home school can bring many things to the surface: impatience, selfishness, impatience & did I mention selfishness?

– My extended family is spread  all over the country and I rarely get to see them… I miss them.

City churches have different challenges than suburb churches. One of those is the constant need for finances.

– I’m SO grateful to live in the city. Wide open space sorta gives me the heebie-gebbies after a while.

– It was 85 years ago yesterday that my Dad was born. (and he’s been gone for nearly 15 yrs. ) I miss him!

– It was around 105 years ago yesterday that Chilly’s Grandma was born… She was little, tough & adorable.

– I’m not very good at “relaxing” and yet I seem rather good at wasting time.  Grrr

– Introducing someone to a relationship with Jesus is often the easy part; helping them develop that relationship (discipleship) is much more challenging…. but also amazingly rewarding!

– To many people in my life I’m like an Aunt; to some, a sister; to others, a Mom. The funny thing is that most of them are about the same age.

– Ministry is WHO we are, not what we do

– I’m so thankful for some friends who came over & helped out with some yard work & window cleaning jobs! Yay!

– It used to be kinda frustrated when people would just send cards that only said, “Happy Birthday” and nothing else. Or just put two little words on my Facebook wall, “Happy Birthday.” But when my husband said, “Well, saying two words of kindness is nicer than not caring & saying nothing at all.”  Oh… true. That changed my entire point of view. (Sometimes I so dumb)


Anything on your mind that you wanna share?

  1. I love these posts. A look into your brain makes me feel a little less crazy. (Not cause you’re nuts, but cause I can think the same things!)

    What I’m thinking? Umm…I’m already having to roll off of the couch with 19 weeks of baby growth left. Oy. It’s humbling. And challenging more than just physically.

    Oh, and Veggietales are some of my songs. Lol!

  2. I love how honest you are- it is very courageous! I am really interested in the thought about the tribe of Levi…that is pretty sweet how they had extra rewards too!

    ..on my mind? I am loving every second of this warm weather!

  3. I love reading random thoughts too. It’s fun. 🙂

    On my mind…

    – I am really enjoying my kids lately. Both Sam & Addi have been saying some very profound stuff & it can almost bring me to tears. So blessed to have them.

    – I always seem to forget how challenging the 2-yr old year is. Micah is proving very challenging one second & making me laugh the next second.

    – One of those things Micah makes me laugh at lately is calling me “stink bug” when I tell him to do something. Since we don’t use that phrase, I want to know who taught him it! lol

    – I love this warm weather but am nervous about it getting cold again. Cuz it has to, right? I mean, it’s only March!

    – I am so thankful I am not sick all day/night now that I am in my 2nd trimester. Praise Jesus!

    – My husband is the greatest. He just is. Nuff said. 😉

  4. I love that you’re my friend and we encourage each other (based on the thought about how you are so much to so many!)

    On my mind…

    Glad I got armor, I’ve had to use it more than I thought this week… wondering how I was managing before nLOL!

    The weather is so absolutely beautiful I wish my dad didn’t sell his boat

    and i wish I had more vacation time!!

  5. “Ministry is WHO we are, not what we do”

    This is something that I have learned over the last few months. It is crazy to think that I used to think the opposite now. This is so good. Thanks Netta!
