I've Got the No Time to Write a Post Blues

These days I am feeling a certain sort of obligation (a good obligation I am glad to have placed upon myself) to write a post every few days or so. I certainly would not want a whole week to go by without a posting of some sort. This (writing) is a new discipline and, in the scheme of things is no doubt an answer to my prayer for more discipline in every aspect of my life.

Today I had hoped to spend an hour or two at the keyboard, but it was not to be. It is late and I am left with but these few moments right before bedtime (In that respect, this post is rather more a journal entry). As today unfolded, I did a few chores, like shopping and emptying the cat's litter box, and then received an impromptu lunch invitation from a good friend--which I happily accepted. Coming home I had a visit from my brother and his girlfriend. We went to a neighborhood pub, the Ould Sod, for a beer and then home for pizza and some good and meaningful conversation. These things filled the day.

I did note, on a little index card during the day, a few potential topics, such as: neatness, order and what they mean; the peace of Christ contrasted to the peace of Buddha (now possibly a series); what makes a "man's man" or, a "manly" man; the cigar smoking interior decorator and a few others. These and other ideas will have to vie for next up to bat on this blog.

Please let me know if there is a particular topic you think I should explore. Who knows? You might just tip my hand in one direction or another. For now it is night-night time and in the morning the beginning of a new work week.

May the Lord shed his grace and goodness upon you and may your life be drawn ever more into orbit around him and his eternal truth. Amen.


  1. Allen,

    It was a delight to meet you this past week. The Ladle Ministry is incredible and a faithful sign of the Kingdom of God in the city. Appreciated your comments on my blog and quite frankly have deep appreciation for yours. I will keep reading with great interest. Bryan

  2. Byran,

    I too enjoyed meeting you. I'm glad your wife and daughter could join you as well. I started blogging in mid May and am really enjoying it. I'll have to return to your blog to do some catch-up on some of your earlier posts. I am very fond of compelling graphics and I really like the one you chose (built?) for your header--very nice!

    I'm beginning to think there should be some sort of group for Christian blogges, like Fellowship of Christian Bloggers or something. Anyway, I just love the cross-fertilization of Christian writers/thinkers sharing their ideas with one another.
    Let's stay in touch! --Allen
