Tonight is the candlelight devotional at ACU. As you begin to doze off after watching the last badminton match tonight--or whatever happens to be on at the Olympics--offer a quick prayer for me. I'll be speaking well past my bedtime! (Why can't we do the candlelight devotional at 5:00 a.m.?) When I began this blog last August, I thought I'd give it a try for a year. The year is up. So now what? I launched it thinking that at least my mom would read it. Now a sort of blog community has popped up. A couple days ago I dropped a little counter on the site to see if anyone besides mom is really reading. (Again, thanks to Matt Elliott for holding my hand and walking me through the technology even though it wasn't much more complicated than "take two aspirin and call me in the morning"). And, apparently there are a few out there (675 yesterday) dropping by to see where my insanities are centered today. So, I'll plug along for awhile. This is the busy time of the year, though, so be patient with me. My Bible class at ACU begins Monday, as does my second year of Spanish. In the past year I've written about grief, baseball (another sort of grief for Rangers fans), love, guacamole, love of guacamole, parenting, faith, church, coaching little league, obsessions, holy ground, marriage, and doubt. I managed to predict none of the winners in the NCAA tournament. (Which reminds me . . . this year's World Series? Angels v. Cardinals. You read it here first.) As readers of the blog, you're welcome to have some input. What do you want to read about? Some would probably prefer that I stay on more serious topics, but I think I have more insight about topics that aren't very serious. We'll see . . . . Thanks for dropping by.
