If you have been following my blog you may have noticed that my header has changed. I have had this site up and running for months and until tonight never noticed that my header featured a big mistake. I don’t know how many others caught this error and just didn’t want to hurt my feelings by telling me I was wrong. Or, if like me, they assumed I must have known what I was talking about, after all this was my site, right? lol
Never assume! I know now, never think you are right, always double-check, triple check to be sure what you are posting up for the world is accurate information. What was this mistake you might ask? Take a peek one more time at the old header and see if you can notice it first.
Have you figured it out yet? Need a hint, a big one? It has to do with the basis for the name of my site, for the theme of the site, for the theme of our whole lives. It was something I was so sure I knew I didn’t double-check, and guess what, here I am months later going, “What was I thinking????”
If you know the Bible, better than me obviously, you realized that Judges doesn’t have 24 chapters, it only has 21 chapters! I put the wrong book for my main verse! And I never realized it. How many times have I typed that in? How many times, not just here but over all, have I referenced that verse and never realized I was looking at the wrong one! Never assume you know, always be sure. Never let that little voice in your head say, “It’s ok, you know this, you don’t need to double-check the scriptures.” Always, ALWAYS, read it again, look it up, find it in God’s word and be sure. Don’t assume because you think its right, because you heard it somewhere else, because someone else told you, that it is right.
So thanks to this BIG Boo Boo, I am now going to be making a few updates. I guess it was time for a fresh look anyway! Thank you for sticking around. Thank you to those who follow me. Thank you to all the family and friends who support me and keep in touch though this site. And thank you to a God who is always willing to forgive even the littlest mistakes.
