I want to thank those faithful readers who have been faithfully pinging by, to see if I’ve actually updated this blog. I haven’t until now, and there are several reasons why (not excuses mind, but there are reasons):
1.) One of my friends went to see Christ face to face, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. She, more than any other friend I know, embodies this thought from D.L.Moody “One day you will ready in the paper that D.L.Moody has died. Don’t you believe it for a moment, in that instant I will be more alive than I have ever been before.”
I can’t grieve without smiling though, and laugh at the thought of a fantasy book lover like Ginny pigeon holing C.S. Lewis (if you can pigeon hole saints in heaven) and J.R.R. Tolkien and asking them all the questions she’d stored up. Mainly though, I think of her worshiping Christ, dancing with King David before the throne of Yahweh with her own dear Mom and Dad. She loves to worship, and worship Him with all of herself.
Those of us she left behind are aching for the loss—but she is more alive than she has ever been.
2.) My work schedule has been shot to pieces. In the space of two weeks, I had four coworkers in the hospital or undergoing major surgery. Two were planned, and two weren’t. So there’s been a lot of schedule shuffling to cover for those who were out.
(Two were out for gall bladder removals, one had a bone in their foot removed, and the last was an unidentified and prolonged non-scheduled health crisis. All of them are doing better, praise God)
3.) Because of 1. and 2. I’ve gotten behind on my reviews for TCM and catching up has taken up most of my free time.
4.) My amazing Aunt is out visiting for two weeks, so updating the blog hasn’t been that much of a priority, spending what time I have free with her, has. And I know you guys wouldn’t have it any other way. Christ, family and real life first, that’s how it should be for any Christian blogger.
All that said, I really appreciate you who have hung in there while I was ‘running silent’, now you know part of the reason.
So that’s the ‘life and universe part’ onto the cake, tomorrow!
