It's Sunday...

...and I am soooo bored. I don't think I have felt this bored in a long while. I don't know why I feel this way, but I do.

This morning was the last day of Sunday school until the fall, and the main teacher in the class I helped teach (kindergarten to grade 2) has now moved away with her family. So, this morning I and my helper for next year (I will be the main teacher) did the class. We just had a fun day for the kids, and only 4 were there - one of whom is not a kid who comes to our church, but was visiting his grandmother. Two kids that are normally in the class moved away as their mom was the other teacher. It would have been nice to have a couple more of the regular kids show up, but that's fine. Next year's class will be small anyway because the Sunday school committee is restructuring things and I will only have grades 1 and 2 - that will leave me with no more than 4 or 5 kids unless there are some families who join the church over the summer with kids that age.

This afternoon I was over to my friend Kristina's for lunch (a usual thing for our 'group' on Sunday's) and we watched the third Matrix movie (I loved all 3 of them). The church van was supposed to come and pick us up for service tonight, but the driver forgot us and we didn't get there. Oh well, stuff happens eh. No big deal, but Kristina was supposed to be in the nursery tonight - hopefully they found someone to go in her place.

So, anyway, I'm back home now and I don't know what to do. I don't want to knit or stay on teh computer much longer so that I can rest my wrists, and I don't want to write because I think I have writer's block - well that and I just really am not in the mood to write I guess. I guess I am just in the mood to not do anything. And that is resulting in boredom. Oh well, might just go to bed early tonight and catch up on some sleep since I didn't really sleep all that well last night.

Hope you have a Christ filled day!

P.S. To whomever is doing a search for 'pitbull cat' and coming to my blog, please note that I removed the picture of the drawing some time ago so you won't find it. Besides it was just a drawing that I was trying to do of a cat and the teacher turned it into what looked like a pitbull, and I had posted the picture of it for fun.

Enjoy the boredom, Shelley! It's God gift to you to rest. Yea, that pitbull cat was something else....

Boredom is not a gift, it's an affliction. Rest is peaceful not boring.

The Lord would ask, "What have you done for the least among you?" I'm sure there are a million things that could occupy your time, if you so choose!

Have a Christ centered day and you can never go wrong!

No more pitbull huh? Guess I missed it. :-) Hope your Sunday turned out well, even if it was just a few extra hours of sleep!

Shelley,
I love your honesty and down-to-earth style of writing....& I love your blog! Seems we have a lot in common with both the writing & yarn & needlecrafts...When I get writer's block, I often pick up my WIP (work in progess) prayer shawl, or whatever I'm knitting, crocheting or stitching.
Love in Jesus,

Hi Shelley,

Just blogging by to say howdy and catch up.

Some days are just days and they make us to be able to give praise for the other days :)

Be blessed,

Writing for the King,

Hi Shelley, just stopping by to visit. The day is over and I am reading up a storm with my book. I trimmed a couple of shrubs today and helped with crafts in Bible school tonight. Glueing foam parts together was stressful and I was glad to get home and leave the glue behind. The littlest kids were the most darling. Our kindergarten teacher mails a letter to each new student every year with her picture in it. She asked 2 little ones at Bible school, 'do you know me?' she said, let me take off my hat (western themed week) and thier little faces lit up...it was a joy to see. One of them pointed his little finger at her and crowed..."I know you" big smiles on thier faces. Each night those little 4 year olds have blessed my heart in a special way.

Boredom is awesome... because you can look back on it wistfully when you're busy, and then remember it wasn't all that awesome.

**hugs**

I can relate to the writer's block, but I think it might just be God's way of making me wait until I completely understand what it is that He wants me to share. Yeah...I've finally posted again...LOL. Thank you for your prayers. I shudder to think what else could have happened if I didn't have them!
