The Blog About Blogglessness

So far this blog has served various purposes:
  • to update people on events in my life
  • to get my thoughts ... out there ... even if only for my own benefit
  • to log significant events such as military training or a running streak
  • to share insights the Lord has given me in the midst of living life
I'm not sure which of these cause you to read my posts more than others, but it is probably the last one that causes me to write them most. I promised myself I wouldn't blog unless I felt like I had something worth saying. On average, that has only been about once a month. You can thank me later for not boring you with posts the other 29 days of the month. (No offense to the daily bloggers out there.)

You may or may not have noticed that it has been almost 3 months since my last blog. (Why did that last statement make me feel more Catholic than Protestant?) The infrequency has been less because of lack of inspiration and more because of lack of time. Between mid April and mid June I was literally home for 12 days, and during those 12 days I had obscene amounts of work (job & school) to complete. Blogging was the furthest thing from my mind.

That being said, I'm home now and enjoying re-entering my routine and normal level of busyness - the kind of busyness that at least allows me to sleep in my own bed, though I'm never in it as long as I'd like. I'm back at the gym and trying to eat healthier. But I'm also making intentional efforts to give God more than a morning drive-by. And as He is so faithful to do when we take the time to listen, He has been speaking to me on a host of topics. Nothing earth shattering, just little nuggets. So if you'll permit me to do so, I'd like to spend some time over the coming days and weeks sharing them with you.

But for those of you who read this blog for the Schadenfreude my life so often provides, hopefully this will get you through. This was my tweet from Saturday:

I'll let your imagination fill in the details of the story but suffice it to say three things:
  1. Any battle between a rock and a swimsuit will always be won by the rock.
  2. The remnants of what used to be my swimsuit are now in my garbage.
  3. The fish in that section of the river got quite a show.
Look forward to talking more in the days to come ...
