This weekend past I bought myself a lovely new toy, a lovely little net book computer. Yes it is a little flashy and yes it is an expense that I don't really need to splash out on. But there is a reason and method behind the madness. Having this new net book servers a triple purpose, the first it allows me to be able to write and blog more regularly when I am fleeting about the country visiting people. The other two are slightly more long term, having this will allow me to keep in contact with family and continue to blog when I move abroad next year.
Some people may feel that to splash out on such a device when I currently earn so little and need to save up so much is frivolous. But this purchase is the last thing I require for going away, everything I will need for moving away and living away for a year is now available to me, except the funding. I know I have a lot to do still to prepare for Canada in a mental, spiritual and financial context but the plans for them is ongoing an in process of being done. At least there is one list of things that can be ticked off and need not be thought about so much. Hopefully the other plans can come together as nicely and quickly, but only He knows what the future holds.
This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.
