What's in a Name?

My favorite verse ends with "think on these things".  Can you find that passage in your Bible?  When I decided to start my own blog, I wanted to call it by that name.  Unfortunately, it was already taken by another blogger.  Yes, I could modify it a bit and still use it, but I didn't want anyone to accidentally end up at the wrong site, think it was mine, and give up looking.  Time to come up with another name.

Several years ago, when my husband was pastoring in a small town, we opened a store.  It was a store that was quite diversified to meet some of the needs of our little town while beginning to put back money for our kids' college funds.  That's when DJ's Sundries was created.  (BTW:  I think the store was great for our little town.  As for the college funds... they still need a lot of work.)

Why Blog?

Recently I've been considering the idea of blogging.  My first real exposure to the world of blogs was several years ago when people that I knew began blogging.  Most of these were theologically based - some quite deep.  About a year ago, I was introduced to coupon / shopping blogs.  Until that time, I hadn't realized that blogs were more than discussion boards.

Enter the world of craft blogs - especially paper crafting!  I discovered that there are a lot of creative people blogging.  I get so many ideas for craft projects when going through these blogs.  Today I found a blog I'd never seen before.  This blog combined  paper crafting with a love for God.  What a thought!
