Some may think that my last blog was a bit of a knee jerk reaction, but for me it was a heartfelt reaction to something that was so momentous in the lives and deaths of many people. I just don't want these kinds of incidents to become common place to me while I go on with my comfortable life without another thought for the suffering of others. It would be sort of like fiddling while Rome burns.
As it turns out it was a good time to refrain from blogging for a while because several other major events happened this past week.
First our dear friend of 40 years, Hubie, went to be with the Lord quite unexpectedly. His memorial service was last week. He was so well loved by people in the church and all over town that there were more than 300 people at the service. He was the GREAT Mister Dependable and Mr. Fix-it, but not a big wheel in city matters or politics etc. -- just a humble and caring man.As an usher, he would always greet me every Sunday morning with a big smile and a kiss on the cheek. He is greatly missed.
There is another major event that is quite unexpectedly looming these past weeks and for the near future. It is claiming much of our time and thoughts. It involves many appointments and important decisions. I can't be specific because of the wide-spread nature of the web, but when we are ready I will let you know. I mention it now because it has been, and will continue to be, a factor in the frequency of my blogging. (Thought I'd just mention that it is not a health issue, praise the Lord!)
I am getting some art work done here and there but scanning, cropping and preparing for them to be posted is quite time consuming in my inexpert hands . I would like to keep up with Inchies and ABC Wednesday but don't know if I can. So for now I will blog when I can. I am continuing to visit as many of my blogging friends as I can and I'm leaving comments, so you won't all forget me.
