You guys have no idea how much I’ve hated not having my computer! I mean, I love the technology of hand-held devices, but there is nothing like sitting down to a computer and making the keyboard smoke! Booyah!
Anyway, I finally go my computer back from the “shop” and it is running like a fine-tuned machine…which is what it is. Now, if I can manage to manage my time and keep my wife and daughters’ eyes from rolling back and searching their brains each time I sit down in my chair, things will be great! Woo Hoo!
Now that I am back at the keyboard, I feel the temptation to comment on the many, many items in the news. However, there is just so much, and so many other bloggers – not to mention news sites – cover this stuff to the point of nausea. Therefore, I’ve got to choose my postings wisely.
Sure, I need to address a few issues floating about in the stormy media sea, but do I really need to comment on everything? Of course not. As a matter of fact, much of what is going on in the world right now is so depressing that I’ve begun to limit my exposure to it. For example, I’m going to vote in the next election, but I’m tired of politics; I’m only going to consume what I have to in order to get by.
Trump and Clinton are on my last nerve, and the election isn’t even in full swing.
Essentially, I only want to write about stuff that will allow me to express my uniquely unique writing style…nothing forced. Hopefully, if all goes well, those of you who read my posts will be encouraged to keep coming back. Hopefully, the stuff I unstuff from my brain will interest you, too.
Here are some things I do plan on covering in the near and dear future:
- An impassioned and desperate plea for donations – I’ve GOT to get to Africa in August!
- A look at the 1996 “Atlanta Covenant” from the Promise Keepers Clergy Conference. I was there, you know.
- A melancholy-like happy reflection on life with an exchange student.
- An answer to a question asked of me: “Why don’t Christians kill Muslims?”
In the meantime…
Enjoy one of my most favorite music videos and one of my most favorite songs – because I wrote it….and it’s funny.
