New Look, New Format

I want to thank everyone that takes the time to visit my blog on a regular basis.  I know there have been a lot of changes over the past month or two, and you have all taken it in stride!

You’ll notice that I’ve added some RSS Feeds and Podcast Links to my site today and my blogroll is back.  When I changed my theme, I didn’t realize that my blogroll wasn’t at the bottom of the page anymore!  Sorry guys, I know this is a big help and you’ll be glad to see that I’ve put it back – it’s now on the sidebar because this theme does not have a bottom bar!

Hope you enjoy the new look and take advantage of the Podcasts.  You’ll also notice that I’ve added an email subscription so you can get my posts delivered right into your email inbox!  How awesome is God for giving us such cool technology!?!

I welcome your feedback and hope to hear from you!  Take care, God bless and as Kenneth Copeland says, “Remember that Jesus is Lord!!!” (fyi, i’m trying to add his podcast to my site, but there seems to be a problem with the code for his reader.  if i can fix it, i will!!)

Works For Me Wednesday – Returning Containers

I was browsing through the blogs I subscribe to and came across Jill’s post for this week over at The Diaper Diaries and I got an idea to piggy back off of her post and stick my 2 cents in.

So, she was saying how she has all these food storage containers in her trunk that she has to return to their owners (she recently had another baby a few months ago and was blessed by friends / family with meals to take some of the workload off her) and that she feels it’s best to use disposable containers versus nice dishes / tupperware. She also has a few really cool tips for the “giver” of the meals so pop over and check her post out!This way the receiver of the item does not have to worry about returning it. Another plus is the giver doesn’t have to worry about asking for it back!

Now, if you must use one of your nice bowls or casserole dishes that’s fine, but make a note (not a mental one, we all know that at one point or another we suffer from short term memory loss and for folks like me who suffer from CRS – can’t remember spit, it’s just pointless to even try to commit it to memory) and post it on the fridge stating what dish you sent and who you sent it to. That way, when you go looking for it, you’ll know who to call if you can’t find it!

My other point is this – if you are on the receiving end of a dish that must be returned, you NEVER return it empty. At least that’s what I’ve been told. You don’t have to put food in it if you don’t feel like cooking, although there’s nothing wrong with putting something from a nice restaurant or bakery in there! I’ve put things like gift cards to their favorite store (I even gave one to the grocery store one time), prayer cards, bookmarkers, a popular paperback, a dvd, crossword / sudoku puzzle books, a nice pen, stationary, something cute I found at the local dollar store – well you get the point. Think about the person who gave you the dish, then put something in it that they would like. It’s even great when you give something you made, a poem you wrote or even a personalized Thank You card telling the giver what a blessing they were. Remember, you don’t have to try and match the value of what you were given with what you are giving back – it’s the thought that counts.

Don’t forget to mosey on over to Rocks In My Dryer to see more of WFMW posts! Bye ya’ll and have a wonderfully blessed Wednesday!
