Get Talking - Mentors

Have you ever had a mentor? It could have been for any reason - work, ministry ...
I haven't really had one ... well except for when I was doing my CPA and it was a requirement for completion. Other than that, although I have wanted one sometimes it has never worked out.

The question is:
Who's your dream mentor?

I can honestly say that I really don't know. I think it would depend on the context - are they for work or something else? Whoever they are need to be a person of integrity, knowledgeable in their field, and actually care about me.

Get Talking - Sunday

What's your favourite way to spend Sundays?

I like to sit with my family and either watch a movie or play board games.
I used to love going over to my best friend's house and hanging out with her, but that hasn't been possible since she moved out of the country.

Get Talking - Fashion and Fears

It's been a good 2 weeks; it's been a bad week ...
2 weeks off work for school holidays, except for the two holiday club shifts that I worked. I got some things done. And then week 2 started with an epic tooth ache. One trip to the dentist (which is somewhere I avoid unless absolutely necessary because of bad experiences as a child) turned into a week of antibiotics followed by a 2nd trip to the dentist and a tooth extracted. Then I've also ended up with a nasty cold - so I may just be going back to work a little later than expected.
I suppose it's given me a little more time to rest, but it's also a little frustrating that things have been cancelled or postponed or just not done.

Anyway, I'm doing 2 questions again this week because I didn't get my act together over the last couple of weeks. I know, I keep giving excuses. Maybe I need to schedule things a bit so you don't miss out.

First up:

What's your worst fashion mistake?

I'm not sure, although maybe it was wearing white pants as a kid and playing in the grass - those grass stains never did come out, but we sure did have fun playing.



What are you afraid of?

  • Spiders
  • Dying alone
Kind of random, but there you have it.

About the Book:

'The word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword ...'That is one of the ways the Bible defines itself. This Devotional takes you into 30 other of its definitions. Your confidence in and appreciation of God's word will be strengthened as you understand its claims.The author's hope is that this book will enrich your love for and understanding of God's unchanging scriptures. For God has expressed Himself within them so you will know Him in a personal way.Scripture is God's breath in print with power to declare His glory. It is His sword to strike against ungodliness. He has given it to us also to guide, guard and govern our relationship of faith in Him.

My Thoughts:

I haven't finished reading this yet.
Ray always gives me things to think about, learn and study more.
This book gives glimpses of the purpose of the Bible and reminds us that it is God's Word.
