framing my basement

[Framing our basement storage room.]

This Photo Friday shows you why my blogging schedule has been interrupted. I’m learning that you never really fit new things (like say, finishing a storage room in your basement) into your routine. As Elisabeth Elliot says, “Choices mean limitations.” So, new things inevitably force a temporary interruption, or permanent change, to your routine. I enjoy working with my hands and power tools, but I hope to be back on schedule with Average Us soon.

On a side note, I’ve been thinking about how I could refine the goal of our posts, and I can’t quite get beyond the word helpful, which is too generic to be, well, helpful to me as a blogger. Do you have any thoughts on what you find most valuable here? Please share your ideas in the comments below.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read, share and comment.

  1. Helpful- as a Christian, helpful is anything that helps keep me pointed to God and His Word. It may be a clarification, helpful tip or hint. On that note, one of the most helpful things to me in my walk with God has been putting on the full armor of the Lord, Ephesians 6, I believe verses 10-17. I put that armor on every morning, I am equipped with all the spiritual armor to do battle for that day and I can be victorious in that battle and therefore give Glory to God in that. Once you understand what the armor provides and discipline yourself to put it on each day and use it, you will see your spiritual life reach a new level. But you do have to read your Bible each day. It is the most important thing you can do in a day and it will renew your mind.
    So, I hope this was helpful.

    • Thanks Corrine. I’m a firm believer that if we could get people to study the Bible more, we’d have more focus on the mission, more joy in Christ, less worldliness, and less doctrinal error. I will think on how Average Us could encourage this. God bless, Lon
