"Do you blog?" I overheard my officemate ask another coworker.
"Yeah...well, sort of. We used to but it's been awhile since we've posted anything," he answered, before putting the same question to me.
"Yes, but same goes for us. I mean, it's great when we have been out on a project trip and have something to report, but the day-to-day aspects of this thing strikes me as a bit too boring to post very often," I responded.
So yeah, I know we haven’t blogged in awhile. We did not really mean to just fade off into oblivion or fail to update you on the happenings here, but one of my “no-nos” is blogging when I don’t really have anything to report. I don’t need to waste anyone’s time with photos of the mule deer in our yard or my last hike or some snow (although I love that so many of you tell me how much you enjoy the CO pics). It always feels like the "real" news is what happens on project trips. But then we recently took a week in Florida and got to meet and catch up with so many of you and all your great questions helped me see there are some good things I have neglected to report.
So over the next few weeks I aim to publish some short posts. Like our preparations and thoughts about our upcoming stint in Egypt, how our individual job descriptions are evolving, our Term 2 project trip plans, and the various and sundry things God has taught us over the past year. If I stop and take stock of all God has done, I must admit it would be silly to not share all that wonderful stuff with you.
For now, I leave you with this photo of our new “dog."
