I’ve been forgetting to post here the last week or so and I do apologize for that. I’ve been caught up in other things so much that I kept forgetting that I need to post to my blog two to three times a week. My city is off to a good start once again, and I’m happy at work so everything is good for me this evening.
I need to consider whether I should keep an updated version of my modpack at Swagnilla Ice as well as whether to start posting screenshots that are showing off the progress of Victory City. I already stream most of the work there to my Twitch channel even though very few people watch the building. I also release monthly update videos to my YouTube channel, but I think that a screenshot album might draw in more people to provide more feedback.
I’m glad that my blog is back up and running and that I can once again access cPanel. My blog was down for almost 6 hours today (and I have no clue why it happened), but hopefully, it won’t go down in the future. I’m not able to stream tonight, as I have less than two hours until I need to get ready and leave for work. I will, however, be working on my city for a bit tonight, and I’m thinking about setting up a stone brick and gravel factory. Gravel is not that common, but it does make flint in the crusher, so setting up a factory to grind cobblestone (that’s being auto-generated anyways) is a good idea as well as cooking the cobblestone into stone and then fashioning the stone into stone bricks for buildings. I’ll probably set up the machines first, including their connection to the network before I begin building the factory structure.
I’ve started my journey to becoming a member of the Catholic Church. I don’t know everything that’s in store for me, but I do know that this is the direction I feel led by the Spirit. When I attended my first Mass last Saturday, even though I was a little confused at the beginning, I felt a sense of peace sweep over me. When I attended my first Bible study there yesterday, I felt that sense of peace return. I look forward to what lies ahead on this journey for me.
I’m very close to being invited to become a Twitch Affiliate, but I need your help! I need an average of three viewers per stream on my channel to complete the requirements to be invited, but now I’m averaging less than one. Would you be willing to come and watch? You can just lurk in the channel, you don’t need to chat with me if you don’t want to (though I’d be happy to chat with you).
Darkness comes. In the middle of it, the future looks blank. The temptation to quit is huge. Don’t. You are in good company… You will argue with yourself that there is no way forward. But with God, nothing is impossible. He has more ropes and ladders and tunnels out of pits than you can conceive. Wait. Pray without ceasing. Hope.
Don’t edge if you are trying to break free of addiction – it leads to relapse! Trust me on this as it happened to me this morning, and if it happened to me, it will happen to you as well!
