"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life."

It has been so busy lately. First one thing, then another. Races have picked up and we've enjoyed participating in them. We've also taken the camper out and got away a couple of times here and there...well, the time just gets away from you. Daddy's stroke added to the "get aways" and thankfully he is doing better now. Where does the time go? Sometimes there is not a way to account for it all. We really miss church and the end is not near. We have fantastic plans for the fall and can hardly wait to enjoy them. I have had such a yearning to make cards but only a couple have emerged which you can see at this blog. Soon I will be able to focus more on this, but for now I miss it so much. A couple of dear friends (who live away) and I have been trying to "connect" but with something one day and something else another it has been a struggle to say the least to visit. Hopefully, it won't be long before we can do so. So, to reiterate, we have just been plain ole busy! It is good to have something to do with your time. I don't know what we'd do if we were confined to home.
Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
