I Think I Can

When you are asked if you can do a job, tell 'em, "Certainly I can!" Then get busy and find out how to do it. ~Theodore Roosevelt

For the last few years my husband and I have not been volunteering much at church. We were very active for many years and have done a wide variety of jobs within the different churches, but the demands with his job made it increasing more difficult to make long term or regular obligations. Although he is more often than away from home during the week, things are a bit more predictable on the weekends now and our daughter is a good age to be more independent and responsible. At the same time, our church is in need of people to fill in doing some of the things the pastor and her husband were doing, so we are going to be doing more.

My husband will be running the multimedia and sound systems during most worship services, probably, and has plans to rearrange a few things. Although he is already on the building board, my husband has also been asked to fill a seat on the church board as one board member is moving away within a few weeks. He was asked to teach this Sunday night, but he felt he would not have the time to prepare. While he is gifted in preaching, he is not as strong as a teacher. Seeing that everyone is stretched pretty thin, I volunteered to teach the adults, something I have not done in this capacity before. (They may never wish for me to do it again.) I have also volunteered to be the webmaster for the church website, which I can do on my own time from home.

Needless to say I already had enough to do on my computer with homeschooling, but now I am more chained to it than I was before. I am not sure I will be blogging as often, but I am hoping I will as I truly have come to enjoy it very much.

~ My Lord, may our efforts please You and be of good service to You ~

  1. lol. Blogging is addictive. Now I wake so early I get up & blog then. It's the only part of my day that is truely free of other commitments but I also rely on the on~line friendship as I don't have time for real life ones at this season. In a few years that will change again but for now all my friends live in my computer! ☺

    My Dearest & I found church commitments ate up huge amounts of time & energy ~ especially as most people seem to think they are not called to lift a finger to help. I wish people got Paul's admonishment about us all being a part of the one body! So long as it is what God has laid upon you you will be given the necessary grace. The rest will take care of itself.

    I have your e~mail address... Bwhahaha!


Thank you fellow travelers for walking and talking with me along this journey.
