So many thoughts, so little time. Over the past few weeks my thinking has been whipsawed by so many interesting and challenging questions, insights, and ideas. Our church’s men’s group is studying J.I. Packer’s Knowing God, which makes significant demands on your spiritual journey; I am pouring over my research of Ramesied Egypt for my first novel in the Moses series; I have been exploring the bloggosphere and getting into some interesting discussions, especially with Rebecca over at Rebecca Writes on things like monergistic regeneration, which all by itself causes a brain ache, believe you me, and too many other things to mention (please don’t anyone feel slighted). It has gotten a bit overwhelming and I have been feeling a little scattershot. Does that ever happen to you?
What to do? Focus, William, focus and this too shall pass. I thought summers were for relaxing and enjoying the verdant life God has spread out before us. I really do need to get away from this computer. If it doesn’t rain today, maybe I’ll cut the grass. Nothing like the sweet smell of freshly mown grass to reconnect you with the God’s creation. Technology and the intellectual joys it makes available are fine, but sometimes we just need to sit by the stream in the back yard and watch the water flow over the rocks, gurgling with the effervescence of life. Grace and peace to your day.
