Life without printer ink
PsalmsI had begun reading Psalms on my quest to my way through the bible cover to cover. I had gotten halfway through and found a study that interested me. I was looking to better understand the history of Psalms. This book was a bit of a mystery and I stumbled upon this site. I am currently going through the book Celebration of Discipline by Richard J. Foster. Last month we covered the discipline of study so in a concerted effort to apply what I am learning, I wanted to delve deeper when I reached my mysterious book of Psalms. I began the book over, this time using the study as a secondary resource. It has taken on a whole new meaning. I knew there was a Psalm for just about everything you can think of to pray about. In fact, when studying the discipline of meditation, it was suggested to pick scripture to meditate on and Psalms was my first choice. I have truly enjoyed, thus far, seeing a behind the scenes look into not just the book, but the authors of each chapter, where they were in their lives when they were writing, who they were directing to...and the like. I was particularly taken with the Truly Happy Man and the Mark of a True Worshiper. These Psalms can truly show your weaknesses and strengths. God's desires are plain and clear. We just need to be open and willing to accept them. We are going to be studying confession in Celebration of Discipline and I look forward to comparing that to Psalm 32, the Blessedness of Confessing Sin.
Life without printer ink
My printer ran out of ink when I was trying to print out my book. This is bad in that ink is very, very pricey and I cannot print out coupons without ink. I was going to be smart and get my ink refilled at Walgreens for about $12, which I have done in the past. Not this time, however. My ink cartridge woulsd not work in their machines...at either of the two stores they sent me to. I truly felt the value of my time when I realized how long I wasted driving and waiting for ink that couldn't be filled. One store thought it was their machine and sent me to another store who also couldn't fill it. Thankfully, while waiting, I was utilizing my time wisely by accomplishing things that needed to be done, but the driving part and even the ten extra minutes of waiting really got to me! That is when you know your time is valuable! Needless to say, I may have to break down and buy new ink. Research on cheap ink is on my horizon!
