Where have I been?
The simple answer would be “busy.” Very busy at work. We’ve launched several new websites and have 6 more big go-lives before the end of April. Frankly, at the end of my working day, I’ve not had a whole lot of energy to sit down and write.
Reading through the Bible this year… has taken a big hit. This frustrates me. I should be in the middle of Joshua right now. Joshua is one of my favorite books in the Bible. Talk about a guy who had a whole lot on his shoulders. He didn’t have the luxury of just working one shift. He sat under the leadership of Moses for years. After Moses would leave the tent of meeting, Joshua stayed a little longer to spend some face time with God. I guess I have failed in this aspect over the past month.
So, I’m just gonna pick up where I left off. Leviticus isn’t as riveting as Joshua, but I need to get back on the plan.
On the physical side of things, I have been trying to be more healthy. I try to make it to the gym more often. Drinking more water. I need to pick up my pace to get prepared for the Peachtree Road Race (assuming that I get a number from the lottery) Even if I am not totally prepared by July 4, the best part about doing the race is getting to do it with my wife. Neither of us are ever gonna run it in under an hour, so we just go to enjoy the event and get the shirt.
Japan. Wow. It is such a reminder of how blessed we are. Seeing the images coming from it are so difficult. God is in control. These are times that we should trust him. These are times that test our faith and willingness to get involved in the world around us. We should not be like the church of Sardis. We should not be found asleep.
I did read a book that I wouldn’t have picked up unless my wife didn’t recommend it. Water for Elephants. Apparently there is a movie coming out this summer with one of those vampire dudes from the twilight movies and Reese Witherspoon. It is about the old circus companies that traveled by train at the turn of the century. The Depression serves as a backdrop to the story. The book was extremely interesting. It would seem that there is nothing like working for a circus and the operating proceedures that happened in these early troups are bizzare.
One of my recent posts was about my learning some .net development. I have worked on a couple other demos and training sessions. There is so much that I want to know and I just want to build into my foundation more so that I can be a better leader at work. Not sure where that is leading, but it is challenging nonetheless and we can all use a little challenge.
Looking forward to a vacation that is coming up. It is gonna be fantastic.
Anyway, I just thought I would do a general update. I hope whoever is still reading my pathetic blog is still doing well.
