Where does the time go? I mean, it seems like it was yesterday when it was Labor Day! With fall comes a lot of camping, traveling and races. Now before we knew it, Christmas is knocking at our door. At first, I was not going to put up a Christmas tree since we were going to be in and out so much. Then it got sad because it felt like we were being left out of the best season of all...Christmas! So while I was out one day, I saw this cute little tree and decided that this is what we'll use. Instead of our usual tree, we went with a table tree. We rarely use our dining room table except for throwing things on anyway, so why not use it to our advantage...brain storm approaching! Though all the gifts wouldn't fit on the table, they are placed around the dining room to give the whole area a festive feel. There are several underneath the dining room window. Here's our little tree with over 20 gifts around it. There's still a few more to be wrapped and purchased but you get the drift. The second photo shows the lights on the tree a little better. Enjoy and have a wonderful Christmas season with your family and friends!
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life."
Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
