I am not alone

Okay, I’m up WAAAAY too early this  morning.  No point staying in bed when I just cannot sleep, so – here I am.  My burning question with my ‘new’ blog is whether to try to post twice a week, once a week, follow a schedule or just at random???  Ideas are appreciated.

So, on to my morning – ever feel sorry for yourself?  I guess we all do at some time or other and I’ve been down that path recently.  It’s awfully quiet around here after having my sons visit.  I know that “I am NOT alone” – in the physical or spiritual sense.  I may not have human companionship, but I have little furry blessings following me around constantly at home.

Take my mornings for instance…. as I have my devotions and my first cup of coffee.  Koda is as close as he can get on my right and I can barely reach my coffee cup on my left because…

Emma Grace is on the arm of my love seat, and I have to reach over her!

But much more than the furkids who keep me company is my Lord and Saviour.  I’m reminded daily of the verse that sits in the footer of my blog – Deuteronomy 31:8 “The Lord himself will go before me.  He will be with me, He will never leave me or forsake me.  I will not be afraid and I will not worry”

This remains one of my favorite scriptures.  Moses tells Joshua to be “strong and courageous”.  I try!

    I’m interested in what you come up with schedule wise. I’m sort of quietly trying to start my own blog — haven’t published it yet, just sort of seeing if I can get in the habit of writing and if it’s at all interesting. But I had the same question this morning as well — how often should I publish – if I publish.

    I love reading your blogs and hope you would do one twice a week, but I think random has its place as well. You know — when the mood strikes you. I’ll be interested in what you come up with.

    And it is nice to have the furkids so close — I realize how much I count on them and how much they count on me — so proximity is comforting.

      Thanks Jacki – for the nice compliments on the blog. I’ll be interested to see yours. Remember back “in the day” when Dockers did various blogs. I still have “365 days in…” though it never actually made it to 365. I may actually rob a picture or two from it as the blog goes along. I’m not sure how interesting mine is. It seems so many of the blogs I find are a particular subject – clothes, DIY, etc… and that’s fine – but mine will be ‘stuff’ and I’m not sure how popular that is, but….

      I’m still toying with the ‘how often to publish’ and I think I’ve come up with twice a week (for most weeks). One on a scheduled day – probably Sunday – and one at random. That way I can plan on the weekly one and just sort of insert the random one whenever. I’m a schedule sort of person so we’ll see how that works.

      I’m still learning WordPress – have never used it before, but it’s doing well for this. Not crazy about some of the templates they offer, but it’s good they have a good choice.

      Love seeing Max in your little gravatar. I hope he’s doing well. Yes, I do love my furkids and though they can be pretty pushy sometimes, I do appreciate their touch.

      Looking forward to seeing your blog.

      Iris
