An Incomplete List of Things You Do Not Have To Do

Okay, besides bake cupbakes for Johnny's pre-school, what else could you choose not to do in order to have time to read your Bible?

  1. Watch TV?
  2. Read the newspaper?
  3. Read the latest novel, Christian or non-Christian.
  4. Read the latest Christian self-help book, or PARENTING book.
  5. Could you relax your standards a little regarding housecleaning or cooking from scratch?
  6. What about hobbies? Why not make Bible study your hobby?

Or how about this non-traditional answer? Quit going to ladies Bible study, especially one with homework.

The possibilities are endless. What would you add?

I second the ladies' Bible study. For more things to give up, how about the Internet? (ooh, personal knife stab)

Jennifer: (after the initial shock and woundedness) SOMEBODY had to say it.

Now here's a question just to you, well, and anyone else who wants to answer it, and I may put it up on the question blog:

Any thoughts about balancing time between blogging and reading blogs? I have so much to say (part of it is probably my stage in life), but I don't want to be rude and not "listen"?

Any thoughts?

good question..... which I can't answer, since not only do I not blog (I kept one as a travel journal for a week), I don't comment when reading blogs. Yours is the only one I've commented on more than once. Writing takes way more time than reading for me! I think a writer doesn't have to be a reader, and vice versa. Whatever works for you, and whatever is enhancing your walk w/the Lord, do that! I've never really thought about rudeness; some would probably consider it extremely rude to read a blog daily and never comment, but hey, who's going to know either? :-) To me, reading blogs is more like reading the newspaper. One-way for me.

How about talking on the phone.

I agree!

Somehow talking on the phone seems to be an ineffective way of building relationship. It's okay for making appointments, etc, but it's especially detrimental to family time.

With my in-town friends, I would prefer to just get together in person. I'm thankful many of my relatives are moving closer this year.
