I'm going to just jump right back in here like nothing ever happened. Like I never neglected this online journal.
A lot has happened since I last posted. I've cleaned up my blog layout (I'm sure you've all noticed), I've welcomed a new darling niece into my life,
I've earned my degree (at long last), I now wear a modest trimmed beard,
I'm in the best shape I've ever been in, and have been living in a room in my parents' basement as I continue searching for a dream job.
Now, here's the part where I just throw out all the thoughts I've got to write.
I think people should make a habit of getting outside. There are days when it's not a great idea, but on the days that are pleasant or even bearable, we should be out and about more often than we are. We should use our porches and patios. We should get a little sun and air. We should slow down enough to appreciate the simple beauties in what's right in our backyard. Not only do I think it's a healthy idea, but I would venture to say God is much nearer when we get outside of our lives and take a grateful glance at His creations.
While I'm on the "sage advice" kick, let's throw these gems in:
(I heard these quotes and have really seen the wisdom in them lately.)
"What other people think of you is none of your business."
"Short visits make long friends."
I could explicate some on those, but I think they're best left as they are. Thanks goes to my aunt Cat for that first one. My aunts are the source of a lot of sound advice for life.
That should do it for now. I've got a few other ideas of things that I'll be posting soon, so watch for them.
It's good to be back.
