AN OVERVIEW

(Image taken by me...not as technologically creative as Richard.)

Since I last posted in February:

1. I bought myself several books to read. One I read in 2 days...It was the Pride and Prejudice story from Mr. Darcy's viewpoint. The last three chapters were missing. It took me about 3 weeks to get a corrected version. I tried to get help from one sales clerk. Clearly, being of the male orientation, he did not fully appreciate my delimma. In fact, he thought it was rather humorous. The sales clerk that waited on me when I received my corrected version laughed as well. Because I found a chair and read the rest of the book before leaving the store. Another book, Born on a Blue Day , was fascinating and intriguing. And humbling. It gave me a glimpse of the vast greatness of Creator God. I am so simple. He is so amazing.

2. I implemented some new training techniques at work. They have worked out amazingly well. We also identified a whole new slew of trainers within our organization resulting in a much improved orientation for newbees. And little time for me...lol.

3. We have felt God moving us....well, I hope it is God because I have credited it to Him...for moving us from our faith community. We have visited a number of churches and communities and as of yet, have not gotten the nod, spiritually speaking, on settling in anywhere. I am parched for a Christian community of my own. I feel so welcomed at a number of places...but like I said...we are waiting for the nod. I hope it comes soon. If not, I hope I am patient.

4. I sprained my ankle in January. It has just now started to feel better.

5. I turned 50 last month. I am not sure how I feel about this, or even how it happened. I still feel like a kid. Well, most days that is (please see #4). I tried to play it down and warned my family that there would be NO "over the hill" parties. My office was lovingly decorated, tho (thanks Amy, Madison, and Tyler!)

6. I have missed reading blogs and writing posts. It is interesting how cathartic this can be and how connected I feel to people, some of whom I have never met.

Hi Kay. Sorry about your ankle. Good luck in your faith community search. and do let me know how you feel about turning 50. I reach that point in July.

I feel the same way you do about "over the hill" parties. It really is just another day.

thanks for your comments on my blog. It is a tough subject and one that really cannot even be explored in 5 little paragraphs. Probably shows how little I know about the subject. But I had to say something. that is why I am here.

I will try to stop by more often. Thanks.
David

Welcome back! I know that it brought a huge smile to my face when I saw that you had left me a comment. It's great to hear from you and I'm excited to read what proceeds from your mind, through your keyboard, and into my mind via the world wide web (and my eyes).

Happy belated birthday!

You have been missed too.

Mind you, I have had difficulty getting around to visitors bloggers as I once did.
