Poof.... and it's gone, and a ball of yarn

I deleted a post. Yes. I did. Sorry. But it really wasn't that interesting. At least, I don't think Ace would think it was interesting enough for me to leave it out there in the blogosphere. So poof! It is in deletion land.

So let me talk about this:

Our pastor was talking this morning about engaging the congregation in the numerous ministry opportunities that are available at our church. It was a good, five-part series, talking about equipping, enganging, evangelizing, exalting, and then one more "e" word that escapes me right now. I listened. I really did.

In his discussion, he raised a point about the whole church being bound together. Our worship arts pastor (my choir director) had us throw balls of yarn around so everyone could be holding on to a piece of the yarn. It was a good way to show the interconnection of the church.

But do you know what I was sitting there thinking about?

I wonder if they are going to ball this yarn back up?
This has to be acrylic yarn. It isn't the best quality.
I wonder if I could make a good hat out of this?
I'm not too hip on this color, though.

And you know what? My friends were looking at me during this exercise, and they KNEW I was having these thoughts.

Man. Am I THAT transparent?

I guess I am.

You just need differentiated instruction. You're a high-level thinker who got the concept right away, and is now doing what you've been socialized to do -- sit quietly while everyone else catches up.

Can you tell where my brain is?????

I love your thought processes. It's hard to stay entirely focused all the time, even at church. Then, to make matters worse, they through one of your favorite hobbies at you? Can you imagine if they threw me a book? Even the Bible, and I'd be a goner.

Yeah, I've got to say I'd be thinking something similar. Since I'm not a knitter and wouldn't know my head from a hole in the ground when it comes to yarn, I'd be focused on who was going to clean it up.

Oh, and I have to tell you, I thought of you this weekend. We were in Da Big City (a town, 60 miles away, with a population of just over 20k) and drove by a yarn store. The Knit-N-Purl. I was [] this close to taking a picture of it. LOL!

I SOOOO want to open up my own yarn store. Have a little coffee kiosk thing in there with lots of tables and couches and chairs and books and yarn and people. My American dream.

I would be thinking what a mess it was making. Very good demonstration though, I might have to borrow that.
