Back in the saddle?

Attention my dear five friends of this blog: 

I have been away for a while, really for a good half a year.   Why?

*  I've stopped blogging in order to focus on launching New City Church.  
*  I've stopped blogging in order to redefine (for myself) why I want to blog. 
*  I've stopped blogging in order to refrain from making snarky comments about US politics (not that there is anything wrong with that--I've just needed to check myself & motives for doing so).

So, what now?  

*  The church is launched and we're having a blast watching God work.   Not that there is not more work for us to do, but I feel like this blog is no longer a distraction.
*  Why do I want to blog?  Mainly just to reference stuff that I may want to remember, to keep up writing, and to share things with you--my faithful five friends (which may be even fewer now that I haven't posted anything in forever.  
*  I really have to refrain from political comments.   I'm neither Democrat or Republican (generally--snarky comment coming--I think the Dems are driving the car off the cliff at 85mph while the Republicans are content to drive it off at 65mph).   I'm generally conservative, but don't think our Republic comes anywhere near what was originally envisioned by the Signers of the US Constitution.   Plus, I'm living in Canada now, and Canadians are pretty snarky about US & Canadian politics.  

So yeah, I'm back in the saddle.

Thanks, my friend!

Glad you're back. I've missed ya! But we miss you more in real life. I'm so thankful for all God is doing up there. Praying regularly for you all. Keep us in prayer too. We're still doing a lot of waiting, praying, trusting that God has some good stuff up His sleeve for us (I suppose that's the main theme of all of life as Christians isn't it though?!)

I love that you said "snarky". "Wonky" is next up to be used. ;)

Well, just to let you know, #5 friend looks at her reader nearly every day hoping to have a tidbit, snarky or not, to make me think about something that is important to you.

And btw, NC still needs more PCA churches and it doesn't get nearly so cold!

Love you, Son.

Yeah! I've been off the blog scene either and hope to be in the same boat as you. Interesting, isn't? Btw, your political line of thought reminds me of Doug Wilson. Do you read him? Whenever I get the chance to read him, I'm both encouraged and challenge by his writing.

Keep the banner up my friend!
