Yeah, so it’s technically Monday now but I wanted to write a bit about Sunday. It was the normal church, lunch, throw in family pictures at the local rescue squad, study for youth group, youth group bible study, pick kids up at Mom’s kind of Sunday.
But I wanted to make note today was our new youth pastor’s first full day at church. He sat in my Sunday School class which is the 10th-12th grade and then once again this evening when I taught bible study. We also have planned a guest speaker for Wednesday night as he wants to get a feel for the place before speaking. But what I was surprised about is how much more talkative he was today than before when he had visited. He was pretty quiet while I was teaching, not putting any commentary in but he was teasing a lot of the youth before and after and then added some comments tonight after I requested any other input from anyone. I had kind of been worried he was too quiet than what our group was used to but I think he’s going to work out just fine. And I was also surprised to find I was quite at ease teaching around him. Normally I clam up around other adults but I didn’t today. Maybe it’s just me getting used to being a teacher/speaker. And I was even more happy when I walked out and realized that may be my last bible study I may have to teach for awhile and really, that takes some weight of my (and other leaders I’m sure) shoulders. Reinforcements are here!
This evening I have
completely wasted spent Interneting. Well, I did have official work for about an hour when some problems came through and then I’ve been working on my other blog. So far that blog has totally not been worth my time and money. We’re getting visitors alright, but unfortunately not seeing much money from it. Maybe I’m missing on how to do something?? I’m hoping with the new season starting in about a week, it will pick up. If I’m not seeing much out of it within a few weeks, I may hang on to get my money back and then abandon the whole thing. No point in pouring all this time into something that’s just a time drainer. I really do love the show and all and I’d probably post about the show on here like I do others but it’s a lot of work trying to keep up with every single tidbit of info that comes in on the show and cast.
Oh, I suppose it’s officially New Year’s Eve…last day of 2007…unbelievable.
Oh, let me tell you a little story to make us all feel old. A youth member and her dad were sort of teasing each other and she made some comment like, "You’re so old-fashioned, this IS the twenty-first century, it’s not like it’s the 80s anymore or anything!" Wow, I think that hurt.
