Thanks to Kayla for introducing me to this loveliness. The Brilliance has been my jam during long grading-papers stints lately. FYI, they have a free live album up for your perusal on NoiseTrade.
How is it that I
seem to think that I have nothing to write about? It has been a week, right? There has been a gathering of crafting friends, another snow day, a great and challenging Bible Study, dinners with more friends, getting stuck away from home for two nights, lots of productive students, exciting projects starting at school...and yet I can't come up with any stories...
Let's just talk about blogs for a minute, then. Recently I verbalized to a friend the thing that "scares" me about this little space. I started this blog as a way to communicate with friends and family, those who love me, and actually know more about my life then what is posted here. Then, later on and for various reasons, I started posting Religious Ed ideas as a way to share resources with people who are doing similar work.
So in my head, I like to pretend that there are only two types of people who read my blog:
My closest family and friends.
And complete strangers.
I have no issues or concerns with either of those groups reading what is here. However, there are a lot of people that do not fall into either category that still find their way to this space. Acquaintances. Friends I don't connect with frequently. Friends of friends. Extended family. Coworkers. Students (eek!).
Even though I am not ashamed of or regret anything that I post here, there is still something about finding out that a person that I don't know all that well knows a whole lot more about me, bases their opinion of me from on what they can find here, and then never mentions it to me during our in-real- life interactions...
Google image search Fulton Sheen Activities and a chunk of the first couple hundred hits are links back to this blog. Same thing if you start digging around on Pinterest. Should have seen that one coming, but the greeting, "Miss Bogner, I found your blog!" isn't exactly music to my teacher ears.

As you can see, my rant slid into bribery. Whoops.
Good thing I know that we have a merciful God, just like the song above preaches.
