So many words, so little time

I look back and realize that it has been 4 months since I posted here. Good heavens. But, I have a bit of an excuse. First ... no one really reads this space. It was actually created as a place for me to hide out and do some quiet writing. I'd LOVE to have readers - what, do you think I'm nuts? (stop it - of course you do!)

However, I got to Ephesians 5 and stopped. Why? Well, I have been writing a Bible Study that has taken up all of my free writing time. It's been awesome and incredible, but it's also been a little overwhelming. All of my reading time is taken up researching the thing and all of my writing time is taken up writing the study, the weekly lessons and every other bit of stuff that goes into something like this.

I hope to publish it after I have finished writing and presenting it to several groups at my church. We'll see how far down the path I can go with that.

I will be thrilled to finish it. I'm ready to move on to something else, but God knows me quite well and I am in the middle of presenting it to groups of people that will not allow me to cut and run. I have a responsibility to them! So ... that puts me back in my place at my desk with pencil in hand and a keyboard under my fingers.

Every once in awhile ... when I find a few extra moments - and something triggers in my mind ... I'll be back. And when I get finished with the study - I'll also finish Ephesians and get on to something else!

I am a coworker of Jacque's and linked to see the picture you took - it's beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I know Jacque will be lifted up by that. And now that I've found your blog, I'll have to check out your past posts. I attend Community Covenant Church at 157th and Q where I've been trying to learn more about the Bible. I was raised a Christian (United Methodist, actually) but managed to grow up without a whole lot of Biblical knowledge. So you'll have one reader now! :-) Good luck with your book, sounds like a great opportunity for you! ~Melanie Dostal

Welcome! You can check more of my fun blogging on my myspace account. And a lot of my reading is on my home page - there are some devotions and lots to read there.

I'm glad you found it - and I'm glad Jacque has such amazing coworkers! It's been awesome to read!
