Things I Learned During a Month Off from Blogging…

Among other things, I learned…

  • People still check in on your blog, even though you said you were done. Cool!
  • Blogging really is an itch that needs to be scratched! It’s not quite like Jeremiah’s fire in his bones, but it must be pretty dang close! Within 10 minutes of posting that “I’m done” post a month ago, I had three or four things I wanted to post!
  • Perry Noble rocks!
  • So does my buddy, Gary Lamb. (But I knew that before I took my blogging break!)
  • My other buddy, Tony McCollum ain’t too shabby, either!
  • There is no substitute for passion.
  • There are a lot of things that keep our prayers from being answered.
  • If my prayers don’t articulate God’s character, advance God’s Kingdom, and achieve God’s purpose and plan, they probably aren’t going to be answered.
  • Some people “get it.” Some don’t. Some of the ones you think “get it” really don’t. And vice versa.
  • Medeski, Martin, and Wood are perfect for a Tuesday night post-blogging-break Unwind.
