I hope everyone’s having a blessed Sunday? This post is my weekly round-up of what’s been happening on the blog over the last week, plus a few personal reflections on my life at this time, and a Question of the Week to help me find out more about you. Let’s begin!
The Week in Review
To kick off the week I shared my Monday Music post, which this week was a classic song by soul legend Sam Cooke. It’s all about love! To read the post and listen to the song, click here.
On Wednesday I shared May’s Blog Spotlight post. Every month I write a post shining the spotlight on a few blogs that have been submitted to my Promote Your Blog page. To see this month’s featured blogs, click here.
I was back on Thursday with my weekly Thursday Theology post. This was a slightly longer post than usual looking at the idea of Christian salvation in relation to the free will problem. To read the post, entitled ‘Free Will and Salvation’, click here.
On Friday I shared my weekly Friday Philosophy post, which this week looked at Philo of Alexandria and his controversial take on the Jewish Scriptures, which was influenced by ancient Greek philosophy. To read about Philo, click here.
Unusually for me, I posted on Saturday as well, as I wanted to get your feedback on some changes I have been considering for the blog. Thanks so much for all the fantastic thoughts and advice you shared, there was plenty of food for thought! More on that below…
A Few Personal Reflections
- Having taken on board your responses to my feedback request concerning how often I should post, I’m going to attempt to stick with my current schedule moving forward. Some people suggested they would like daily posts, others suggested posting once in while would be fine, so it seems that my current schedule offers a good balance / compromise. Also, I really enjoy my current schedule. While things are busy in my life, I’ll just have to be super-organised!
- My new fitness regime has been going on for about two weeks, and it’s going really well. I’ve lost weight, gained a bit of muscle 💪, and am sleeping well and eating more healthily than ever. I’m seeing a physio on Tuesday as I want to sort out my posture – too many years spent slouched over a laptop have taken their toll, and I want to reverse the damage before it’s too late! I’ll update you in the coming weeks.
- I’m already really excited about Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in June. I have some money put aside to upgrade my MacBook, which I have had since 2013. It has served me really well, but I feel it’s time to sell it and upgrade. I’m looking forward to seeing what Apple release in June, and how the price of older models comes down. Which gives me an idea for QOTW…
