Oh, It's Good to be Back

Hello, everyone. I cannot believe how much I missed being here. Even more, I missed knowing what was going on in your lives! This lenten sacrifice was incredibly hard. I don't know that I'll pick this one again. Wowza.

I was not perfect. I stumbled more times than I care to admit, but I was still on the internet for a lot less time. If you don't believe me, check out my bloglines. I have over 1400 blog posts unread. 1400!! Good grief. I fear I will never catch up. I've thought of selecting "Mark All Read", but I just cannot do it. So, if I have not returned to your blog, be patient. I'll get there.

I found that it is not enough to give up something for God, you have to replace it with something else. I started a Precept Bible study on Matthew that I found here. It's free and you can find online videos (also free) to go along with the lessons. I found that I did not have time to watch the videos, so I've just been doing the lessons. I took Precept training almost 15 years ago, but haven't done one of their studies in ages.

Here's a quick peek into our lives over the past few weeks.

Welcome back!!! Thanks for sharing the Precept info. I have been doing Precept with a friend for a couple of years, but we are on break right now. I'm going to ask her if we can do the "Matthew" study!

I don't have much blogging or online time these days. I always enjoy visiting your blog when I do have a few minutes!

Well I guess my head has been in the sand! Welcome back!

Welcome to the green hour challenge! We have been doing them too... but the last few weeks I have been taking a blog break so I have not posted 6 or 7. I won’t either, but will continue on where we are with 8.

I took precepts training about 7 years ago in Portland Oregon. Love precepts. In fact I am starting a class on the 24th. We will study Jude.

Welcome back... read and enjoyed your weekly report for this week April 11, and your first green hour challenge... good job!
