I Almost Forgot How To Blog:( 04/14/2012

Posted by pastorhigdon in Uncategorized.

I can’t believe that it has been almost an entire year since I have posted on my blog. I am always amazed at how an effort begins with great joy and excitement, and then for some inexplicable reason begins to turn into work. This is even true, unfortunately, of labors of love like my blog.

Well, let me say that I plan to begin writing again. (That may either elicit a whoo hoo from you or an oh no, depending on your past experience reading my blog posts)  For some reason, I have always felt that taking some time, writing my thoughts down and sharing them with you has been good for my soul and I have very much missed that.

But, it isn’t like I have been sitting around idle. In reality this has been a very long and difficult year for us, arguably the most difficult year we have ever had. The challenges began last July when we lost Karen’s Mom and two weeks later my sister went into the hospital for emergency surgery and since that time, she has spent pretty much this entire past year in either a hospital or rehab center. As I am writing this, she is once again back in Intensive Care.

It has also been a year of joy, for after a nine year journey since being called into ministry, I will be ordained on June 9th at the Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church up in Indianapolis at the Indiana Convention Center. (I am pretty sure that I will have more to say about that)  🙂

Anyway, I am looking forward to getting back in touch with you again and sharing with you the variety (if not strange diversity) of things that float through my head, all the while trying to remember not to take the journey  so seriously that we can’t stop and smell the flowers along the way.
