When a blog is quiet

by Jim on 16 November 2007

There are many reasons why a blog might be quiet.  Maybe there’s not a lot to write about (that’s not the case with us – I have a list of things to write about when I have the time).  Maybe the blogger just doesn’t feel like writing.  Maybe things are really busy, and there’s just no time.  Or maybe things are just downright CRAZY!

Earlier this week I was getting together with my friend Tim.  I was a little late – ok, about 45 minutes late.  I took a wrong turn.  Well, ok, not so much a wrong turn – more like a completely wrong idea.

Anyway, being so late, we didn’t have a lot of time.  We decided just to pray, and so he asked if there was anything specific he could pray about for me.  I told him that there were so many things it would take too long to explain.  When he asked me for just a couple – I said again – it would just take too long to explain.

Really, I wasn’t trying to be evasive.  It’s just that, not only are there a LOT of things going on right now, many of them are pretty complex.  One thing depends on another, and another can’t really be explained without mentioning this and that and the other thing…

It’s not rare that we get hit all at once with a bunch of little things.  But in this case it’s not just little things.  It’s not even one big or two big things and several little things.  It’s a whole bunch of big things AND little things.  There are so many major things on our minds, big things we’re trying to work through – it’s really unbelievable.

So, I’m sorry I don’t have more time to write, or the time (or finger stamina!) to fill you in.  We’re still here, and things are going at an unusually crazy pace.  We would appreciate your prayers as we work through a number of issues and try to get — a grip!  ;)

We’ll be praying for you and the family Jim! I understand the feeling and don’t need to know all the issues to be able to pray for you. God knows them all. Thanks for sharing.

Norm – you are AWESOME! ;)

And congrats on finishing your newsletter (looks great) – I’m working on the same thing as I type.
