Original Post Below (I put the index up at the top to make it easier for anyone who finds this study later and wants to browse).
I was going to start blogging about Keeping House: The Litany of Everyday Life. That was back in July. Then July came, and the summer had turned into a gypsy procession, as various combinations of members of our family traversed south and north and east and even west (in the form of a trip to Alaska). I almost stopped blogging altogether, and I hardly was even reading anything that didn't have a narrative.
In early September I actually did give the house a full autumn cleaning, but I was too busy doing it to write about it.
But now it's
When I was at Bible Study tonight I was thinking about how much more I retain of the things I studied along with others, than I do when I read something on my own. It goes like this:
- Read quickly through it on my own = a general sense of what the book was about plus a few details.
- Read through and blog through it = all the above plus some actual thoughts in my head that came out of what I read.
- Read though and discuss it with others = tackling some real gaps in understanding that I hadn't even noticed + getting insights from others + some actual changes in my life and thinking, whether big or small.
Even starting now takes me through January --- yikes. I needed that reminder that Christmas is not really that far away!
