Blogger Interrupted (again)March 12, 2009
Greetings to all in Jesus name. The thunderstorms that rolled through our area on Sunday were by no means remarkable. Nonetheless, the surge protection devices were incapable of protecting the computer which is now being repaired. Everything was under warrenty so there’s no cost, however, it has to be sent to an authorized repair center. This means that for the next 2-3 weeks, any activity will have to be conducted at the township library. Needless to say, my activity will be greatly curtailed until our computer is returned.
The trip to Chicago went very well, and while it was a sunny day, it was also very windy. The temperature hovered around 20 degrees and gave new meaning to the phrase “the frozen chosen.” Truth went forth nonetheless. Two things that intrigue me, though neither should. First is how far my wife has come along. She has become more understanding and supportive as she no longer protests these ventures. Secondly, is the sheer number of folks who are so busy building their careers and running to and fro that they simply have no time to think about eternity. It’s astonishing and in a place like Chicago, the scope of this truth becomes more manifest. Thousands upon thousands of individual tragedies unfolding as everyones final moment draws ever closer.
And such is the case in every community, in every corner of the globe. There’s been much on my heart during the past few days about giving our all to Jesus. To be in a place so surrendered to the Lord that we count all that we have in this world as dung that we may be a faithful ambassador for Jesus. Well, I’ll be going for now as I have to get home and take care of a few things. I’m enjoying the layoff this week, however, it’s been busy. As soon as our computer is back up, I’ll try to ge caught back up. Thanks to all who have taken time to comment. I’ll reply when I can. Until then, I wish to all, blessings in Jesus name.
