7 Quick Takes for Friday



--- 1 ---

I've started the 1,000 gifts in a year Joy Dare challenge. Ann Voskamp launched it yesterday. And I signed on. I've already been kinda sorta doing it with my "Where's God?" journal postings, but now I have to start from #1 and so "Where's God?" is going to be on hiatus while I attempt to come up with 3+ gifts God has given me each day. I usually manage about 5-7 a week!

Will you be joining in?

For some reason, I want to memorize this dialog. All of it. The funny thing is that when my brother showed me the first episode of the series (which was converted into a movie for American audiences), I was all "meh". Now I find it freakin' hilarious.


"Gentlemen, to bed! For we rise at daybreak."

He quoted it on Facebook and I couldn't remember much of the dialogue. But to learn the whole thing, including the Billy Connolly impression. That'd be awesome.

7 Quick Takes is hard. (This is my first time doing one.)

So excited about Revbecca's ordination tomorrow. And the day after she celebrates her first Eucharist. I guess more about this in next week's 7 Takes...

I have written the first "family" newsletter that I have in literally years. My grandparents loved getting this.  My last grandparent died this past year, so I think this is me trying to stay connected to my family a whole ocean away.

It didn't go out in time for Christmas, but it will hopefully go out before Lent. They're printed and I'm prepared to email the others.

Last week found me at Chick-fil-A doing my church communications planning for the year. When to promote events and how to get a communications strategic plan done for each ministry in my church. I suspect I ate way too much fried chicken for the day and a half I was there.... (oh, and the chocolate milkshake! omg.)

What? It's a Christian restaurant.  It even closes on Sunday. The In 'n' Out was too far to get to.

Today hasn't been a good day for my English. (It's my first language.) First, I wrote "highly educatid" (stop correcting me, Mac laptop). Then I wrote "I have wrote a newsletter..." above. And then "plan done for each church in my ministry."

I truly suspect it's time to call it a night.

"Gentlemen! To bed! For tomorrow we ride at 9:30"

"ish"
