What I Am Loving, Chapter II

30 Jun

1. Listening to NPR while finishing my bulletin.

I think NPR only hires people with soothing voices.  Agreed?

2. Milog, my newest iPhone app.

I have to track my mileage when I am driving for church-related things and the old-school pad/pencil (that my mom has used successfully for 30 years!) doesn’t seem to work for me – I always forget to write one of the logs down.  This app will flash a little number if I do that, so it’s really helpful.

3. Young House Love‘s Kitchen Remodel

If you don’t read YHL, you need to.  Just trust me.  They inspire me every day.

Although, in my case, I’m being inspired to finish unpacking from my move three months ago.  Not remodeling.

4. Talking theology and faith with my church members.  They make me think in a way seven years of theological and philosophical education never did!

5. Writing my own liturgy.  There so many wonderful resources out there for church liturgy and worship, but I love sitting down and thinking about my congregation as they will say it in worship.  A very cool part of my job.

And I love scribbling it on a legal pad before I type it out.*

What are you loving?!

*My handwriting is usually much neater than that but when I right prayers I do a stream of consciousness and scribbling is the only way for my hand to keep up with my brain!

What I Am Loving Chapter I

What I Am Loving, Chapter I

19 May

Here’s what I’m loving tonight …

1. Getting a jump start on Sunday’s sermon (it’s only Wednesday!)

2. Window shopping on a rainy night.

3. Late night Take5 candy bars.

4. My husband. He’s sweet.

5. A new bottle of nail polish. It’s the little things in life, agreed?

6. Listening to my favorite songs on repeat.

7. The fact that there is FINALLY sunshine on the forecast!

8. Laying in bed and watching horrible television shows. My brain needs a break!

9. My iPhone.  It’s the only way I’ve been able to work at the church while we’re without internet and still stay connected on email.  It’s also gotten me to and from the church, church members houses, nursing homes, funeral homes and back again.  Who needs a GPS?  I’m in love.

10. New possibilities.  Over and out.  Amen.  Goodnight!
