Well lets try this again

I posted a blog a couple of months ago, with a statement that I would read the Bible every day, practice my wood working every day, and post about it at least once a week.  I obviously failed.

With that said I will try again.  One day not to long ago I prayed to win the lottery.  I know some think that this is a sin. I don’t think so because I was answered.  No I didn’t win the lottery, but I received an answer.  As I prayed my mind began to wonder what I did that morning.  What did I do before work the morning before.  I sat and watched T.V.  Now what would I do if I didn’t need to work.  Would I sit around and play video games and watch T.V. all day?  Would I really enjoy this?  I might win the lottery some day.  Yea I don’t really believe this either, but if I learn to avoid the temptation of sloth I might not need to win the lottery.  I will try this again.  I probably will fail again but if I keep trying I might actually accomplish my goals with out winning the lotter.

All prayers are answered even if it’s an answer you don’t want to hear.

Why I’m doing this

The other day I almost started a fight with a friend I haven’t seen in over 20 years.  Why, well we’ve been discussing politics on face book and I didn’t present my idea very well.  Well language is what separates us from the animals so I thought I’d set up a blog to practice.  The blog is about my two favored subjects Catholicism and wood working.  Christ was a carpenters son and I hope to build beautiful furniture for my home.

A list of things I’d like to do along with this blog are.

Practice wood working at least once a day.

Dove tails

Mortises

etc,etc,etc

Read my bible for at least half an hour every day.

Write about one of these subjects or both twice a week.

One final note on this blog is.  I hope no one reads it but if you do I’m trying to learn.  Critiques or appreciated insults get you no were.
