Summer’s Gone (Or Something Else I Did On My Break)
Happy Labor Day. It’s the unofficial end to Summer. Sure, we have a few more weeks until the season is truly over, but let’s face it. Our Summer plans are over. We have moved into a new season that I like to call football season. Summer’s done.
Today I want to delve into some other things that I did this summer besides just be busy. The big thing is that I did a lot of thinking and reflecting.
I spent a lot of time thinking about who I am. Not that I don’t know, but life is in a bit of transition these days. My daughter is engaged and getting married in a few months. My son is starting college. My life is changing. I’ve been asked to take on a position at my church that I’m trying to get my arms around. All of this is really causing to me to look at who I am and what I should be doing.
The other thing that I did on my break was question the existence of this blog. Should I continue it? Should I change the focus? Should I start an entirely new blog and do something completely different? Those were just some of the questions I asked. What did I decide?
I’m not sure.
I think the big thing is that I want the focus to be something like this: A real guy pursuing a real God. Maybe that’s what I’ve been doing for the past five years or so, but maybe I just want to slightly shift the focus. What I realize everyday is that I don’t have this whole thing figured out. Whatever I write about is usually what I’m trying to figure out. Sometimes I’m trying to discover what I think about my topic, even as I write it.
So, that’s another brief glimpse into what my summer was like not writing this blog. Let’s move forward now that summer’s over.
Now get out there and doing some grilling on this last day of summer.
