a lot of times, in church, they pass out an outline for the morning's sermon....to help people follow along...maybe write in some 'key words' here and there. they can be very helpful.
for years i have taken my own notes...used to be in a journal with lined paper...an occassional cartoon or doodle here or there.
over the last year, off and on, as my kids sit next to me and interrupt me and climb on my lap, and beg to be entertained one way or another, my notes have changed....the message i'm listening for hasn't changed (at least i don't think so), but my notes have changed.
sometimes i feel like i don't know how to do anything else.
