So, I haven’t been here in two months. That is a long time. I have been distracted and searching for what it is I really need to do with my life.
I decided I was ready to go to work, but since I still have small kids and no sitter, I can work limited hours/days. So I reapplied at the school board to be a substitute teacher.
This way I only work when the kids are in school. It’s pretty slow now, but I am hoping it will pick up and be a pretty steady paycheck eventually.
Working From Home
I started a blog in November called Organizing Spaces. You can check it out here. I started another blog, this one, in December. My other blog I started using affiliate links and google ads to try to make money. I can see that is a slow process that would require me to put in a lot of time on that blog.
It isn’t that I don’t have time, but as I had mentioned in a previous post about being over scheduled that you can see here, I find myself doing all the things besides what I really need to do. Then my important things get laid aside, and as you can see, it takes quite awhile to get back to it.
I have sort of been wondering what God wants me to do. I’ve asked Him, but am not very good at discerning his response.
Am I supposed to work? Am I supposed to go back to school? Should I devote my time working on these blogs? I find myself torn. I am fairly certain I will not go back to school. Two reasons to work is to get out of the house while also making money. But I still want to help others through my blogs.
So I was laying in bed last night putting the 5-year old to bed while reading my bible and wondering what to do about my blogs that are just sitting around. And the answer suddenly became clear to me. I am sure it was God telling me what I needed to do.
Why Not Both?
I can substitute and still work on my blogs. After all, school is almost out for the summer, so that will give me plenty of time to re-establish the blogs.
I’ve never been much of a writer, but I am finding that I enjoy it. That is probably something I got from school. I just graduated last July from Kaplan University, now Purdue, with an AAS in business administration. I wrote a ton of papers.
So awhile back I wrote a post titled Jesus and Coffee which you can see here. Now, I am thinking that I kinda wish I had named my website Jesus and Coffee, or Coffee and Jesus or something along those lines.
I started going to church March 19, 2017, and found my home. I need Jesus and Coffee everyday!
I know this post is a little short, but I really didn’t take any time to plan it. So bear with me as I get back into the swing of things. So, what are your thoughts on changing the name of this blog to Jesus and Coffee or some variation of that? Let me know what you think. Leave your honest opinions in the comment section below!
