first blog post

March 15, 2010

Well here it is!  My first ever “official” blog post.  I only name it as such so you will know I’m a complete newbie at blogging.  But also in the hopes that someday I’ll be able to look back over a somewhat substantial body of work and point to it as some type of sentimental beginning.

If you are reading this then we’re probably really good friends, family or at least “friends” on Facebook or you’ve simply wondered across this somehow and my writing prowess has drawn you in too deep!   OK so not the latter.  Truth is I’ve wanted to start a blog for some time now but I have not… probably because I’m a terrible procrastinator but also because life is extremely full when you have three boys (Jonathan 6, Caleb 5, and Josiah 9-months at the time of this posting) a business you’re trying to build, seminary courses to finish and an incredible wife (Vanessa) who has been encouraging me to do this for a long time.

I must confess upfront that, more-than-likely, this blog will be more therapeutic for me than anything else for those that choose to read it.  Truth is I don’t feel as though I fit into our world very well.  We live in a time of specialized knowledge and niche markets on a global scale, and either I have ADHD or I simply love too many subjects to be of much marketable value to any of them!  Either way I’ve been somewhat vocationally challenged a lot of my adult life and hopefully by writing about the many subjects that interest me here I will be able to focus and refine my strengths on what exactly it is I should spend the rest of my life pursuing.  I pray this is an encouragement for you to do the same.

Calvin opened his Institutes of the Christian Religion with “The sum of true wisdom-viz. the knowledge of God and of ourselves.”  I hope to explore a lot of both of those… and I hope you’ll join in the conversation.

I will aim to be honest with my thoughts and welcome your honest feedback.

    I love you…and I think you have great things, insights and thoughts that many, many people will find spiritual, helpful, and exciting.

    I love you! Many times I depended on you as a “spiritual” headship, which was probably unfair, but….you never let me down! And, I thank you so much for that! XO

    PS…I think we both have ADHD….just sayin’…
