Wow — what a Feast of Tabernacles! My apologies to those of you out there who have been coming by regularly to see if my blog had sprung to life yet after the Feast. While the spirit was willing, the flesh was weak (or at least busy), and many other things have taken priority.
However, I currently find myself sitting in the lobby of a Firestone automotive repair building while my van is getting a bolt replaced (ripped off during a recent tire rotation) with only so much I can do without an Internet connection. Actually, I can’t even blog without that but I can type this up on Windows Live Writer and have it post as soon as I get home and connected again. 🙂
For those of you out there who observe the Feast of Tabernacles, I hope you had a great one. (Feel free and let me know in the comments below!) I must say that ours in Branson was blessed beyond belief. My thanks to all those who served in Branson to help God provide us with what was one of the most inspiring Festivals I can remember in a long time.
Also, a huge thank you goes out to those who worked on this year’s “Behind the Work” video. MANY in attendance in Branson told me that they thought it was simply one of the best “Behind the Work” videos they had ever seen. Actually, one person told me that the video was a real mistake — but only because it raises the bar so high that it will be hard to beat next year! 🙂
There is much I would love to write about, and as the dust settles from the post-Feast work and other “catch up” work currently surrounding me, I plan on doing just that. However, I’m not sure I can bring myself to write discuss politics during this final week before the election, so don’t expect me to. How this race is wrapping up is astonishing in my opinion, from everything to late revelations (which aren’t really revelations for those who listen close enough) to one of the poorest run campaigns in my memory, at least (I think one candidate, should he lose, will receive a lot of flak for the numerous unseized opportunities, the many missteps, etc.). But given the extensive coverage of it at the moment coming from all conceivable angles — not to mention how lacking in quality that coverage has been (can we impeach the media?) — I just can’t bring myself to add to the cacophony. So please excuse me if I take a pass for a while — at least here in this forum — as it is hard to stomach much more. Thank GOD that Christ will bring a Government that won’t be so thoroughly unrighteous, dishonest, and, frankly, nauseating.
Again, I hope to be in touch soon. Take care, and — for those who have been traveling — welcome back!
