Your Blogging Type is Kind and Harmonious
You're an approachable blogger who tends to have many online friends.People new to your blogging circle know they can count on you for support.You tend to mediate fighting and drama. You set a cooperative tone.You have a great eye for design - and your blog tends to be the best looking on the block!




You have a great eye for design...and your blog tends to be the best looking on the block! LOL :) , that line is so far from the truth, BUT despite that last line, I found this quite interesting...it actually gives a pretty accurate picture of how I am wired in real life, especially when life is on a more even and smoother road! I just wanted to thank everyone for your comments on the previous post...I tend to have some issues when I'm not getting sleep...go figure that everyday life as a stay-at-home, homeschooling mommy and wife would get a little tense and more difficult when you aren't able to get more than 5 hours of sleep for 5 or 6 days in a row and am starting to feel sick. Praise God that last night I was able to sleep for almost 8 hours straight...I feel refreshed this morning and that in itself took away some of the anxiety, grouchiness, and whines that I was feeling!

I wanted to simply direct you to some really good posts I've come upon the last couple of days. Curious Servant just put up a new post http://jobstale.blogspot.com/2006/02/echoes.html. The last few posts have been very thought provoking...please continue to remember Curious Servant and his family in prayer.

After working for a pastor for two years before our move, something which has come to play in my life is what do I call him now that I'm away and we're no longer sidekicks in the pastoral staff area of life! Ricochet is a very good post about this...you can find it at http://e-pistles.blogspot.com/2006/01/ricochet.html.

I have read a few articles in the last little while about shalom and found them to be very educational in giving me a good overview about what shalom is. You can find these at http://northvus.blogspot.com/2006/01/shalom-baby.html, http://sheffield.typepad.com/dansheffield/2006/01/describing_shal.html and http://sheffield.typepad.com/dansheffield/2006/01/missional_commu_1.html.

This one is about my church...what an amazing group of people (our new church family) that Mr. Cinder and I have been blessed with...words cannot adequately describe or give justice to how God-loving, God-driven and supportive they are! This post talks about an amazing work of art on the back wall of the church and now another work in the basement on the youth room wall...you can see the pic at http://northvus.blogspot.com/2006/01/bombing-church-for-gods-glory.html.

Kc has a post which will direct you to some more good sites: http://justsoyouallknow.blogspot.com/2006/02/few-things.html.

These posts from Following the Herd, Corry, Jackie, and Pia are really interesting:

I'm so glad you're feeling better today and I appreciate the links and the link to the links. ;-)

Corry said...

Thanks for the link:-)I hope you are doing better.

Keeping you in my prayers.

God's Grace.

Cinder said...

Thanks you guys...I can honestly feel prayers right now...that's helping me through! I'm thinking if I can get a couple more nights of really good sleep, then I'll be on my way to getting on the straight and narrow.

Being sleep deprived and having three kids with you 24/7 is hard...it's been making teaching difficult and we've had to take a far lighter load this week than I'd hoped, but that's alright...next week will be a brand new week!

Blessings

Apparently I am an artistic and passionate blogger.

Which may be true, but from the dearth of questions I doubt they have the detail to always be accurate.

They also told me:

You see your blog as the ultimate personal expression - and work hard to make it great.
One moment you may be working on a new dramatic design for your blog...
And the next, you're passionately writing about your pet causes.
Your blog is very important - and you're careful about who you share it with.



Overall, probably not a bad take on "Job's Tale".

Jackie said...

Glad to hear that you are feeling better. Don't forget to take time out for yourself. God Bless.
