Have you ever found yourself reading a book and you were so captivated by it that you could not put it down? Have there been times when you picked up a book started reading it and wanted to know why anybody would publish such trash? It’s about the story.
The preacher walked into the kitchen and opened his Bible. He turned on his laptop, ready to begin preparing the sermon that he was to deliver on Sunday. He pours himself a cup of coffee as his mind races through thoughts that have seemed to plague him for months.
- I have to be intentional. I need to plan/schedule time with my wife and child. While writing, sermon prep and church stuff is important, it is not as important as being a good husband and daddy.
- I want to cultivate the relationship with my wife. I want my son to see that when he gets married, his wife should be his closest friend.
- I want to make time for my little boy. Ultimately, I am responsible for teaching him how to be a godly man. Just because he is two does not mean that he cannot start learning now.
- I do not want to wake up one day and realize that I wasted valuable time with my son. There is nothing apart from Jesus and my wife that is more important than my little boy.
I am left-handed so it would make sense to have a journal that keeps me from having to write with that weird left-handers grip. Now, I absolutely enjoy Moleskines but I am a writer and I don’t use my Moleskine for everyday writing. However, I have found a company that sells notebooks for left-handed people.
The company’s name is The Left Hand. They make spiral notebooks for left-handed people. This is genius. The notebooks come in wide-rule and college-rule They make the notebooks in one subject, three subject, and even a smaller size 80 sheet notebook for quick note taking or you could use it as your task list of things that need to get done like I do. The notebook’s spiral has been reversed. The spiral is on the right side of the notebook and the notebook opens right to left as you can see in the picture. I always order more than I need. I probably order them two or three times a year. Other than the spiral there is really no different. The left-handed person does not have to turn the notebook or bend their hand in any awkward positions.There is nothing magical about the notebook, I just enjoy using them. I use them for just about everything, grocery lists, to-do lists, journaling, keeping track of blog posts, sermon prep, and whatever else I choose to write. They have replaced the traditional notebook for me. You can find them at www.thelefthand.com.
What do you use for writing?
