Yep, this is one of those obligatory, "I've been too busy to blog posts." I really don't like posting these things, but I don't want people to think that I've either a) given up blogging, or b) fallen into a hole.
Fear not for my sanity and safety.
The main reason I've been silent is that I'm absolutely slammed right now. Church is always the priority, but I'm also teaching a class and taking a class. When those all collide, I find myself scrambling to stay ahead. I have a major research paper due Thursday [which consumed my non-preaching weekend], in addition to some Bible lessons I'm writing for a magazine [soon and very soon, I'll have those to you Sheryl]. It's rough, but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.
And part of my one week absence could be blamed on this new blog layout. Yeah, it looks pretty sweet but it requires that I get pictures that go with every post. So since that process takes from 5 to 10 minutes, I tend to see it as too time consuming and put it off. So I hope you enjoy the visual stimulation that accompanies my musings.
I do have plenty of things to post about when things calm down. So wait patiently . . .
