Far too much internetting

Well in between playing bejeweled on facebook and idly reading a variety of blogs and websites I am starting to go boss-eyed. So I need to go do something constructive, like reading! :) I'm still enjoying The Stripping of the Altars.

I want to start incorporating some extra cleaning now that Christmas is over, the things that get missed like the inside of cupboards, etc.

If you like to do a big project then here are a couple of links to a New Year cleaning plan (Hat tip to Sandra):
2010 New Year's Cleaning Grand Plan
Complete text: Grand Cleaning Plan

I'm not sure if I am going to go all out for a grand cleaning plan or just put in a couple of 15 minute projects a day. Depends whether I'm feeling overwhelmed or not. If the weather stays bad and I can't get to church/the village during the week (I do a bit of voluntary work at church on the phones and sometimes in the coffee shop and I help out at Grandma's) then I can plunge into something major but if things start to clear up then I think a bit here and there would be better.

Well, now I've bored you all with my cleaning plans, here is some excerpts from a song our Music Group leader sang this morning:

Still Your Soul in Silence by Don Francisco

So many turns, so many ways, so many voices cry
Standing at the crossroads watching time go flashing by
Indecision paralyses, it's the fear of choosing wrong
But waiting is a step itself and you're wondering too long
So again you search the scriptures and again you ask your friends
But last of all the One Who knows the beginning from the end
In the clamour and confusion, and the blindness of your choice
Still your soul in silence, and listen for His voice.

That is quite beautiful and I feel a deep truth to these words. "The fear of choosing wrong", I think that is a little of where I was at yesterday. Christianity is vibrant and varied, but at the heart of it is Jesus Christ - He is the One we all seek; and if we do genuinely seek then we will find. At the end of the seeking, we will know that our seeking is actually the Lord drawing us - as the Good Shepherd the Lord finds the lost sheep and carries him home.

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:44 (NIV)

See I'm still on the internet! Must go xxxxx


  1. I do far too much "internetting" too. I cut back some and stayed away from the computer for the most part this weekend. I picked up the book "44 Scotland Street" by Alexander McCall Smith this weekend. So far, so good. I should read more.

  2. I've not read that book, let me know if it's any good. I'm always on the look-out for a good read.
