GUILTY FEELINGS…. Whoa whoa whoa….


The 6 Different Types Of Procrastinators

Procrastination tips for everyone:

– Get help from others (professors, friends, family) to stay accountable.

– Keep a daily journal to evaluate your use of time.

– Practice visualization. Envision the changes you want to make in your life — how it feels to make the change, and what your life looks like after the changes are made.

– Create a timeline for completing a task or achieving a goal, with specific, short-term steps along the way.
































So, feeling guilty. Guilty that I have a few hours off this afternoon and just want to go to bed.

Guilty that I came home and didn’t even let the dogs out of the bedroom, so I could relax. And blog.

Guilty that I don’t make more time for volunteering stuff. [but my schedule is so crazy it is hard to plan]

Guilty that I am not upstairs knitting and doing school work.

Guilty about not having enough gumption to go pull weeds. [oh, it is raining now]

I am a perfectionist procrastinator with a dash of defier and overdoer.

Guilty that I have too many irons in the fire and hoping i don’t mess any of them up.

Guilty that I have a great life but always think I need to change something, so something different, focus on the bad.

Guilty that I asked the doctor to change my meds.

Guilty that I am worried about some health issues, when others have it way worse than me. Dying, losing family, homeless, chronic illness, etc.






Musings on…… Home Church/Bible Study


Thinking about having a little bible study here at the house using these books:

Read somewhere that these should be the points to follow for a ‘home church’

(Acts 2:42;42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

1 Corinthians 16:2;On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.

1 Timothy 4:13; Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching.

2 Timothy 4:2: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.).


and this paragraph stood out to me:

When we think of three core things any group — small or big are doing — things that are inward (with our relationships), things that are outward (in the area of evangelism) and things that are upward (toward God), the house church situation provides several advantages over the larger church. Notably, one of them is that it’s not a cultural shift for an unbelieving neighbour or friend of yours to accept your invitation to a gathering that meets in your home, unlike the culture shock of stepping into many of our church buildings for a Sunday morning meeting.


Oh, I like this article, wraps it up in a  pretty bow:, this one too, and


Orderly Worship
1 Corin 14:

26 What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. 27 If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret. 28 But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. 30 If a revelation is made to another sitting there, let the first be silent. 31 For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged, 32 and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. 33 For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.

Acts 17:11
11 Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.

romans 16:3

Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, 4 who risked their necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks but all the churches of the Gentiles give thanks as well. 5 Greet also the church in their house. Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who was the first convert 2 to Christ in Asia.

colossians 4
15 Give my greetings to the brothers 2 at Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church in her house.

Hebrews 10:24:

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
1 Peter 4:10:

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.

Would be nice to get people gathered together to worship, even newbies. If it grew and became more permanent, we could use one weekend devoted to outreach. Questions about tithing, songs, outreach, growth and inverted focus all show up on the interwebs. Far too early to think about that.

My husband and I praying about it and asking others to pray also.

Updated Announcement About Rehoming Cats



from my business site

Originally posted on kristina's critter care:

I am no longer accepting cats for rehoming.
Shelters are inundated with cats and kittens all year long.
They have to vet them, fix them and tirelessly find homes for them.
They spend tremendous amounts of time, their own money and pieces of their heart.
What the public doesn’t see is the tens of hundreds of calls and request one rescue gets in a day.
That means a shelter is trying to re home dozens of cats at one time and the outlook is bleak.
The best thing a person can do is:
1. do not get a cat unless you will keep it lifelong.
2. spay/neuter and vet your cat.
3. if you must rehome a cat, go to, click on the shelters and rescues tab, right side is ‘find pet adoption groups’, put in zip code, then start calling and emailing down the list. Have a…

Just Some Junk I have been Doing and Reading



Faith Crisis: questions. Why did God have to make all the Adam and Eve bullshit… I mean, within the context of the bible it seems to all make sense but in life, it does not. Why did God give us the bible? Or is it just man made religion? Is all this just man made religion? and if it is, then what or who do we believe? what does God really want from us?

I think I let my worship of man get in the way of my faith. So disappointed in frail humans. including myself.

And heaven and hell. I would almost rather believe we are just gone after we die. done. finished. Finito.

Missions Trip: going on a missions trip over the mountains to the Native Yakama Nation reservation. It will be my 5th year and I am super excited to see everyone and do a little bit of good, love on some kids, fix some houses, fellowship. Oh and its supposed to be over 100 degrees. NOT looking forward to that. AT. ALL.

Calvinist snob: I have become what I dislike about others. A Calvinistic snob. Oh, I am trying to rectify it, trust me, but when I made a comment about some church spewing arminian crap… I kinda realized. I’m fixing it.

“If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire- then you have a problem.  Everything else is inconvenience, Life IS inconvenient.  Life IS lumpy.”

   “Learn to separate the inconveniences from the real problems .  You will live longer.  And will not annoy people like me so much.   Good night.”

Missions Trip: hard but good. love being back with all the Sacred Road peeps. Love love love being back with the Sacred Road team and meeting all the church teams that came out this year.


This medicine pouch was made by and given to me by a native woman who is active with the ministry. She and her kids are dear friends and I am so honored to have received this. sacred road 2015 040picture from Kids club

just some stuff i read…..

Christians are like manure, in a pile they stink. Spread out on the land they enrich the soil.

Sense of Entitlement:


I keep getting ideas for posts, then petering out. But, for the sake of time and energy, here is some stuff I wrote down.
