In Luke 15, Jesus told three parables about being lost: lost sheep (15:3-7, NIV); lost coin (15:8-10); lost son (15:11-32). Since my last blog post on June 15 (Yikes!), I guess I’ve been kind of lost.
Some of it has been due to travel. Some of it due to a six-week location where wifi and computer service was spotty at best. Some of it due to other projects. And some of it due to…well, feeling kind of lost.
I don’t apologize for feeling that way. I think we all feel a little lost at times. I do apologize for going dark without any explanation. I kept intending to get started again. I kept intending to let you know what was going on or what wasn’t. But intending and doing are two different things, of course. So, my sincere apologies.
In Jesus’s three “lost” parables, there was rejoicing that the sheep, coin, and son were found. I’m not going to be so bold or vain to assume that you are rejoicing at my return, but I am rejoicing. I have missed connecting with you on this blog. When I need a break in the future, I’ll at least have the courtesy to let you know that.
To begin again, I plan on returning to what was the genesis of this blog: the book I wrote to celebrate the births of our first two grandchildren. That doesn’t mean I’m going to post things I’ve already posted or lift portions of the book and place them on this blog. But A TIME TO BE BORN: Meditations on the Birth of a Child focuses on birth, life, and renewal. That kind of focus is a good way to get re-started. I may not post something every day. Let’s just say I’ll be posing something regularly.
Stay tuned–and thanks for your patience.
