Yea, verily there comes in ones life a time when they just cannot bloggeth.
They sit with hands poised on the keyboard, but no words come forth, no meaningful thoughts, no funny happenings. Thou then step away from the computer to think about it, eat something, drink something, pray, clean up the bathroom, play with your kids, hoping that the word will come.
Sometimes writing sermons are like that, the first words, thoughts, feelings just don't come. It is a struggle to come up what to write or say. you feel like the Holy Spirit has failed your or the connection is not there. So you readjust yourself, try to reconnect if the connection is down, and hope you come up with what will sound meaningful.
But there is something different. The blogging world are people I don't see face to face. The people who read our blogs are not people we know.
So I force myself to bloggeth something. So I bloggeth that we are back down in the area where I served as Pastor for five years. My girls are flower girls for their former baby sitter who is getting married. My girs are so excited, my boy is jealous. The wedding is not in the church I preached at, but the church the groom is a member of, it is bigger. I am not the officiant, its Baptist, his pastor is officiating. I get to sit and participate. It feels funny to be back here after a year. Can't say why exactly, but I'll write about it later.
