Journaling

 

Stuck inside, I have re-discovered the Bible. 

And scrolling thru YouTube, aside from cat videos and recipes, I began watching journaling videos, some Bible history videos, and then Bible history journaling videos. 

Not initially being a crafty-type person, these seemed only vaguely interesting. 

I already markup my Bible pages sometimes trying to keep history straight, and then I saw that there is such a thing called a Chronological Bible, Interesting! 

And then I saw there were spiral-bound bibles, and single-column bibles for drawing, notes, and those ever-utilitarian Washi tapes. 

Some really beautiful books! 

Even though they aren't overly expensive, I can't even begin to think about re-starting a bible collection, but sure is tempting! 

There are bibles for boys, girls, men, families and groups. 

Here's just a few of them, and should I ever have one in my possession, I'll be sure to include it within my BookRoom;  

(Sorry I'm not able to line these up a little more consecutively, blogger has a mind of its own..!)

I've turned a corner...

...I think...
Having planned on reserving a pool in Swimply for a break from the summer heat, I found I turned a corner because I'd rather work and save money than relax and spend it.
What a turnaround!
Working rather than relaxing? Never would have thunk it. 
Who can resist sunbathing by a luxurious pool whiling away the stress?
And I have Financial Peace to thank/blame :-)



I made it a problem to spend money.
I had to work at it and it took quite awhile, but it has officially become a problem and I really feel it when I want to purchase a necessity.
Some necessities are okay, and some aren't necessities.
Sunbathing by the pool, yummy! Quite necessary really.
And yet, been there, done that, so off to work I go...

Best Friends

Missed a post last week!
Didn't this week.
Added a new organization dear to my heart for monthly donations.
Can see brief info in the Rescues tab.

It looks like Wildlife Waystation is still accepting donations with costs from closing and moving, etc.
All I know is that all their animals were safely moved to new locations with no euthanasia.
I must say that I always felt a bit insecure about that wonderful rescue only because I couldn't seem to determine what would happen to their animals after Martine was gone way into the future.
The costs mounted, the multiple wildfires didn't help, and the virus would have set their fate for sure.
Injured wildlife rescues are so needed.
May God bless the Caregivers, Staff, Admin, and the wonderful animals, too.

I moved those regular monthly donations over to Best Friends.
This organization has stood the test of time so far.
They are a rescue for injured or abandoned pets.
Their No-Kill motto is; Save Them All, which is quite the task.

Uh-Oh, lockdown again...

The state is on lockdown again.
Can't service the route?
Fear not, even if the lockdown were to go on for years,
and businesses survive, I'll adapt donations one way or another.

They're Baaack....

Does anyone else notice the crazy drivers? 
Was it always that way, or are folks crazy once let out of lockdowns? 
There are people honking, speeding, flashing lights, swerving, peeling out... 
Have only seen 2 people run red lights, otherwise, fairly sane, just can't figure out what they're thinking when I almost always meet up with them at the next red light, weird...

Proverbs 6:6

I chose this business not only because it is a cash business, 
helps the critters, and is easy to manage, but also because it is flexible. 

No thanks to Wuhan virus, looters, or fear itself, the route still runs, and always will. 

I have a new Proverb to share; 

My Ideal; 
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 
Provideth her meat in the summer, 
and gathereth her food in the harvest. 
KJV

My Reality; 

Till Monday when I go back to work :-)

What's Next..? The Heat..!

It's the hottest 80 degrees I can remember in a long time!
If it's only The Heat that's the next virus, I'm prepared, I hope!

What's Next?

The pandemic hurt businesses,
Then looters hurt businesses,
What else will be brought up to hurt businesses and why?
