Blog Administration, Rwanda Trip

Twelve Years…

I got a note that I had registered with Word Press 12 years ago today. If you know me from this blog, I haven’t been saying much lately. I’ve been dealing with “way too busy” on other projects – including one with a deadline I hope to meet. I’ve been doing that while fighting through writer’s block, sometimes ecstatic to get between 4 and 500 words written in a day. Even the devotionals have been a struggle, although they did show up on my Daily Enduring Truth blog. I did finish the deadline and will be submitting soon. I can get back to my main writing and editing of my devotionals.

This blog will soon be the site where I give reports from trip to Rwanda. They will be password protected while I’m over there, but it’s easy to get on the prayer list to get the daily password. Just go to my prayer list sign up and register. You have a choice of getting things in an email or a link (with password) to the blog post on this site. I will eventually unprotect those posts, but while I’m traveling, I don’t like to give out too much information. Thanks for your friendship and support. God’s blessings on you!

Daily Work

April 5 – Stayin’ Alive

Getting through today was an accomplishment. Some days the devotional thoughts seem to type themselves. Today was a struggle. I finally thought of something my wife said and had an idea to begin working with. A few Sundays ago, my wife had to miss church to travel to a conference. I wished her safe travels. She came back and wished me dangerous worship. I loved that idea. That thought came to mind as I was reading the Bible passage for about the fifth time seeking inspiration. Then, I had to hurry so I could get to my tutoring assignment on time. I started off running about 5 minutes late and ended up running about 15 minutes late. Came home for a touch of lunch about 3:00 (Tutoring runs across comfortable lunch hour.) Then, I sat down to plan meals for the rest of the week. I couldn’t think of anything. I stared at the computer. I finally gave up and played more Splatoon (see last night’s post). The title of this post is from a joke that my daughter and I share when she’s playing one of the scenarios. After a certain time, the most important part is staying alive. When she gets to that point, I tell her she needs to Bee Gee it. (If you’re a bit young, they have a song entitled “Stayin’ Alive.”) After dinner, which we ate out, we came home and I did my editing and then started writing this. I’m going back to editing my March and April Devotional book which got skipped due to technical difficulties around the time I needed to get it done.
