This blog is getting old. Already well into its second decade. (Well, into, at least.)
Today is the day, eleven years ago, that I first set out on this blogging adventure. You can read the post here. Many of the August Twenth-Sixths since, I have linked to that first “blog”. It was not of much consequence, but it was the beginning of much thought and heart shared, many stories told and re-told, and generally just life shared with you, Dear Reader.
You’ll note, if you are the observant sort, that the next most recent post here at GregsHead dot net is from the month of June. (At least it is still in the year Twenty-Fourteen…) The writing has been sparse, selective, and even somewhat nonexistent for quite some time. There are reasons, but the main reason of course is my own choice not to write.
Why does that happen? The reasons I mentioned above include excessive busyness, choosing to spend time on other things, feelings of an unimportance placed (by me) upon my writing on any topic, and even sometimes being so beat down by life that, “I just don’t feel like it.”
I have taken some moments to get thoughts out. Perhaps you’ll recall when I wrote about how truly Special God has made each of us to be (not as sappy as that synopsis makes it sound); or two posts [one, two] about our strength being found in our weakness; or maybe you saw the post titled Christians Being Christian, and my aversion to gatherings where those of that ilk are present in greater numbers.
(If not, today might be a nice day to click those links and catch up?)
Perhaps as the Fall begins so many things anew, I will make a concerted (joyful) effort to put fingers to keyboard and once again process the thoughts that constantly churn in my head and heart. I love to share them (and in so doing, refine and learn from them) and I love to hear back from anyone in whom they might strike a similar chord—or a discordant one.
It will resume. The words have flowed for eleven years now. I don’t imagine they will ever cease completely, so long as God breathes his life into me, and there is Internet to share these stories by.
Thanks for reading along.
I’m a fairly new subscriber to your blog.. but I hope you keep on writing. Your stories and family are very inspirational. ..You never know who you touch and the good it does. God has an amazing way of directing the right words to cross the path of the right person at just the right time. ..You’ll never know (this side of life) the number of just such individuals you have been used by our Lord to accomplish and further direct His purpose for their lives.
Thanks, Ginger. Appreciate the kind words. It is humbling and amazing when you think about how your actions, words, etc might truly/deeply affect another person. And especially that we might not even ever know it. Just keep living loved and sharing what God is doing in and through you. God does the rest. 🙂
