Take Three Thursday | A Blimp, A Stack of Bibles & A Box Lid Idea

Joining in with Mary-Lou's Take Three Thursday, a meme designed to help us notice more of the ordinary of our lives.

On my exercise walk earlier this week, I spotted a blimp! Robbie says growing up in the Akron, Ohio, area, it was common to see the Goodyear Blimp flying around. However, it's rare to see one here in the DFW area. This one was advertising Carnival Cruise Lines.

As I was snapping a photo to show the size of my Interleaved Bible versus my journaling Bibles, I was reminded of my tendency to read and enjoy the New King James Version. Although we have Bibles in quite a few translations (including an interlinear one with the original Hebrew and Greek), I gravitate to the NKJV when I begin studying or reading a particular book or topic.

At a card class a few days ago, I noticed that the instructor had the supplies for each card (inks, stamps, bling, sample card) separated into small box lids. This made it easy to keep the supplies together and transfer them from one group to the next. I'm definitely going to remember this idea!

What have you noticed this week?


  1. I'd have to look to be sure, but I think I have at least five different translations of the Bible, maybe more. When I spent a year reading the Psalms every month in a small group, we read different translations during the year which added to the experience. I typically read the NRSV. That is a great organization technique for a class.

  2. Thanks Melissa for joining in today. I will have to check my bibles I'm not sure that they are all the same version. Oh a cruise does sound nice for this time of year. My card instructor sets up three workstation/tables - each for a different cards, so when we are at "that" table we all know which card we are making - it works for me.

  3. My Bible is the NIV ... what my mum used to call the Nearly Infallible Version!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
