Status Report, March (or, In Which the Blog Lives to See Another Day)

Sitting...at the dining room table.

Drinking...coffee, black.

Loving...the sunshine streaming in my (still) treatment-less windows. Y'all know I love fall and winter both, very much so, but I have to tell you there is that part of me that is ready for spring, believe or not.

Resurrecting...the blog, at least for this one post.

Wondering...how long this blogging spurt will last. And, yes, when your blog has been dark for a couple of months, one post does indeed count as a spurt!

Ignoring...the mound of laundry needing to be folded and the messy and dirty house that surrounds me in order to instead report my status, such as it is. You can thank me in the comments. Or maybe it is I that should thank you. Who wants to clean anyway?

Thinking...of returning to wordpress. Any opinions out there as to the benefit of blogger over wordpress or vice versa? Really, my possible move has more to do with me wanting a new look to the blog and finding the free wordpress options to be more appealing. I'm sure there are other, better reasons but I'm just keeping it real. I'll let you know here in this space of any upcoming transfers should they occur so stay tuned.

Realizing...the irony of not having blogged in ages and yet worrying over the site's appearance.

Posting...every other Friday at Out of the Ordinary so it's not like I haven't been writing at all. I have a post over there today in fact. Click over and let me know what you think about the gospel and the world at our doorstep.

Wrapping up...our twenty weeks of seeing Jesus in the Old Testament this Tuesday in the Bible study I teach. It's been a great journey but I have to be honest and say it's also been the most challenging course(s) I've taught. We will spend the remaining weeks of our spring session in the gospel of John looking at Jesus' "I am" statements. I'm pretty excited about it.

Enjoying...having my college student home this week for spring break. All my men under one roof? Yes and amen.

Wrestling...with the freedom of grace and the truth that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus. If the Spirit of God has set me free, I am free indeed! I want to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus and to grasp how deep and wide and high is the love of God, that love that is demonstrated in that while I was yet a sinner, Christ died. What joy is mine! What forgiveness! What grace!

Wishing...you all a happy Friday!

  3. Life is fully of irony. I'm starting to see it everywhere -- and take great humor in it!
