I take it rather personally when the blogs I follow go three or four days without a new post.
It almost feels like an un-returned phone call or email. Which is a pretty ridiculous response when I think about it because I only know two or three of those writers personally. Why should they feel responsible to write something new just because I keep clicking on their site when I have a free minute? (That sentence just ran on and on and on.......)
Ridiculous or not, I feel connected to them through their words and I look forward to reading more.
So, here I sit in a hotel room in the panhandle of FL. It's not even 6:30 AM. I'm drinking an excuse for coffee from a tiny styrofoam cup. Listening to a baby cry in the next room.
Not a lovely picture at all. But I haven't written in three or four days and I don't want anyone to think I've forgotten you or feel, well, unconnected! Smile.
Actually, I have a pretty hilarious post I can hardly wait to complete that came to me while I was people-watching in the Atlanta airport this week. Funny stuff!
"Why are you in Crestview, FL?" you may be asking.
Because I'm speaking for a women's conference. Which, by the way, is one of my FAVORITE things to do. I'll be at one next week-end too.
I LOVE the joy of sharing God's Word. I LOVE watching the light of new understanding go on in a lady's eyes. I LOVE being privileged to pray with them. I LOVE listening to them, cheering with them, laughing, crying! I LOVE women's conferences!
All the travel, missed flights, pushy passengers, long hours, missed meals, crying babies and bad coffee are totally worth it!!
Speaking of which, I need to jump up and get ready for this morning's service.
One quick point. Several of you have posted comments which I read (sometimes several times) and truly appreciate. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to respond to those. Ah, technology! Meanwhile, thanks for stopping by.
