I've decided to let the CoB continue a little while longer and see how she does. I enjoy the CoB so much, but I also do not want to keep something going just because it is there. Yet, at the same time, I don't want to stop something just because there are only a few participants at times.
I did something a little different with the topics . . . I like the challenge of finding beauty in the everyday topics, but as I've been praying about the CoB this week, I think this two-month theme for October and November is the way to go for right now.
So, are there any volunteers for hosting the following topics?
Oct 5: The Beauty of Love (I will host this week)
Oct 12: The Beauty of Joy
Oct 19: The Beauty of Peace
Oct 26: The Beauty of Patience
Nov 2: The Beauty of Kindness
Nov 9: The Beauty of Goodness
Nov 16: The Beauty of Faithfulness
Nov 23: The Beauty of Gentleness
Nov 30: The Beauty of Self-Control
Dec 7: The Beauty of Praise
Dec 14: The Beauty of Tradition
Dec 21: CoB Takes a break
Dec 28: The Beauty of This Year
I personally invite you to join us as we reflect on the beauty of Christ in the world around us. For more info on how to participate as either a blogger or hostess, click here.
I will be out of town this weekend, and then have an out-of-country guest for the first part of next week. So, expect a reply late next week in regards to the hosting requests. Thanks for understanding!! Requests can be made here in the comments or by email [firstname.lastname@example.org].
