Two-fer Tuesday: 70/30 by Deacon Blue

Doing another “gimmick” again, similar to last week’s 50/50 posts by Deacon Blue and Miz Pink. This time, though, we each post exactly 70 words for our point, and the other has exactly 30 words to respond. But we can each pick whatever topic we want for our mini-posts today.

Getting Sloppy

It’s easy to become complacent. Mrs. Blue actually does much more Bible reading than I do overall, whereas I do more Bible “thinking” (which means most of my reading is part of research on a specific blog post or something). But know what? I’m not doing enough reading of God’s Word in general these days. Need to fix that.

After all, we are told to “study to show ourselves approved.”

Miz Pink’s Response

Really good advice I agree. But it’s about more than just reading the Bible. Bible-oriented educational books, radio shows, TV preachers all can add to studying to “show ourselves approved.”

Sharing Space

I am so done with being pregnant. I’m due in days which means I’m due any time. I love the glory of bringing life into the world but why can’t we lay eggs? having to rent out my womb to someone I haven’t even met yet just seems so unfair. I know I’ll love Mini-Pink #3. I just think God coulda picked a better way. I just don’t get it.

Deacon Blue’s Response

LOL. My preacher father-in-law believes women were (before that disobedience in Eden) to have painless childbirth. It is what the Bible suggests, though my inner feminist has trouble with that.

Disease Zone!

Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday. Little Girl Blue was sick and wouldn’t let go of me…pretty much all day.

Literally.

Wouldn’t let go.

You can imagine how productive I was trying to work yesterday, too.

But the lovely little girl is well enough to watch TV on her own while she plays hooky yet again from daycare. Catching up on work and hope to have one or two blog posts later today or maybe tonight.




Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
