Hey bloggers...thanks for the good responses to yesterday's post...
I've been thinking about this past Sunday's message, and the fact that when at the beginning of the sermon I called for people to come up and tell something random about themselves (as in the current Facebook fad), they just came right up immediately (even kids), and weren't shy at all about sharing personal information in front of a very large crowd. I just found that interesting (you may want to share some facts about yourself here...just keep it clean).
I also wanted to say that there is a reason for my picture choice at the top of the page. I used a pic of me writing on my laptop, because that's what I look like when I'm creating all this stuff, and I think it gives my readers sort of a point of reference. But I especially wanted to use that particular shot at the top because it was taken on my own front porch, and I consider the BLOGINTHENOW title header to be the "front porch" of this cyber-house. All the blogs are the rooms in the house.
The point is that I think of it as a place where I welcome you all in, and now I'm encouraging you to go into all the rooms and make yourself at home.
As I said earlier, the BOOKS BY JIM SWILLEY room isn't technically a blog, per se, but I appreciate the reviews that some of you have written there. If you've never spent any time in that room, please go on in and look around. And if you want to write some words about a book of mine there, that would be great!
If you go into the DEVOTIONAL room (A Year In The Now), you'll find a good entry today about forgiveness. Your thoughts on that subject, as always, are very welcome...
In the ENTREPRENEURS room (A Word for Winners), there's a cool article about attracting wealth that's been there for a couple of days. There's already some good feedback there, but I always welcome more. And while you're there, take a little time to enjoy the music in that room. I'm very proud of that playlist.
The LifeSkills room will get an update after tonight's session, so you may want to visit that room now and later.
The MINISTRY NETWORK room (Now Ministries) has Bishop Tommy's new website link, which includes lots of pictures of UNITE 2009 (those of you who went with me to the Philippines will find your pictures there). There's also an update in that room of what's happening in Uganda. You don't have to be in ministry to participate in that blog.
Peacemaker, I'm glad you're not scared to be all alone in the PERCEPTION room (20/20 VISION)...I actually think that's a neat little blog (the little blog that could)...someone may want to go in there and keep PM company...
And, finally, there hasn't been any activity in the PRAYER REQUEST room for a couple of days, but it's there for you if you need it.
So come on in...take your shoes off...set a spell.
This house was built for you...
C U 2nite ITB!!!
