Life Gets in the Way

Bless me father/mother/brother/sister for I have sinned...

I have been really negligent of my blog recently... my last post was January 29th and the one before that was December 17th...  It isn't that I have had nothing to say.  There has been a lot going on in my life and a lot upon which to reflect.  Theologically, I've been thinking about a lot.  My work at the church is very positive these days and I'm feeling good about things there.  I've been working more at my fretless bass playing and I'm feeling really good about it.  Watching my two grandchildren grow and change really is the joy of my life and is simply transcendent.

Life is good... and full... but at the same time I find myself wasting more time these days and I'm not sure what that is about.  I'd like to be spending more time practicing bass (and find more opportunities to perform on it).  I should be writing more here and I even have an idea for a book that has been floating around for a couple of years without me doing anything on it.  I'd like to spend more time playing with Corwin and Khloe or at least be more intentional about it.  I worry terribly about both of my children and their families but really have no solutions to offer either and sometimes that immobilizes me a bit. So I have been spending too much time in completely non-productive activity (which isn't to say that all non-productive activity is bad, we do need some).

So, this post comes both as confession and as commitment to get my butt back in gear.  Check back in a week or so to see whether it has worked.
