I must have said all those things.
I find that I don’t have much energy for blogging these days. The very idea makes me sigh. But maybe that’s because I think I need to write about important things that need to be said. What if I just lightened up a little, and wrote about the things that make me smile? There are lots of those things, almost every day. For example:
- I could tell you the story of my Easter Monday adventure, when I walked fifty miles in a single day (ouch!).
- Or my canoe trip on the Rappahannock the week before, when my niece Rachel and I got dumped into the chilly water in a particularly lively stretch of white water.
- I could tell you that I’ve been invited to speak at the CBF meeting in Tampa in a couple of weeks, on the topic of “Prophetic Preaching for Anxious People.”
- Or that I’m going to the Baptist World Alliance meeting in Malaysia in July, to serve on the Peace Commission.
- I could tell you about the funniest thing that happened on our recent staff retreat.
- Or share with you the funniest thing someone sent to my email inbox on any given day.
- I could tell you how my parents are getting along, or what my children are up to, or how I spend my day off.
- I could tell you the whole story of how my brothers and I accidentally burned down the house when we were kids.
- I could tell you why I seem to keep ending up at the Sweetfrog frozen yogurt place on Cary Street every night.
With all that to write about, it seems that I could return to regular blogging. These aren’t really important things. They don’t really need to be said. But maybe it would be fun to say them. And maybe now, in the summer, when things are a little less hectic at church, would be a good time.
