I'm sorry I didn't get online this weekend, it was pretty full and eventful. But I'll post about that later. How are you guys doing? Sometimes a blog is a very self centered thing. I don't want mine to be, so please be free with the comments. I am sharing what I have to share, it is true, but I also want to be effected by you, and not have this be a one way street.
I feel this will be a serious week here on the Songs on the Way. Seriousness doesn't mean bad or painful, necessarily. And I would never have a ban on silliness! I am a huge fan of the silly.
But as I've been pondering in my head what my next blog post will be, over the course of the last few days, I realized there are several issues I've been avoiding talking to you all about. Because they are serious. And sometimes I fall victim to the "I have to keep it fun and peppy" here mentality. But I also know that occassional seriousness also equals transparent vulnerability... and that also appeals to people. And, in truth, it appeals more the people who I want to leave their own effect on this blog.
So while this week my blog will be in most ways just what it always has been, at the same time I'm going to be doing some more heart pouring.
And that will be good. Because there are really two main reasons (and dozens of smaller ones) why I blog. One reason is to use my voice to share, for Christ. The other is to leave a record of myself, so that in the future when I'm hopefully still keeping this blog we can look back and say, "Wow. Look what God has done."
And so this week, serious as it may end up being, will also be super exciting. You won't want to miss it.
