Mentoring Series Over

I am 33 years old.  I am done with school unless many things change drastically (in me and around me).  My family might be set at 4.

Blogging seems less interesting to me.  At the same time, I would enjoy putting something out there that was some kind of encouragement.  I say this because it is true.  I also say it because I tried to blog last week and I wrote for awhile and realized I didn’t want to finish the post.  The purpose was to discuss the assumptions I now encounter because I attended Covenant Seminary.

Reason #1 I did not want to finish/publish the post: the blog sounded negative and unless I find grave injustice or become much funnier as a blogger, I don’t want to be negative.  I don’t like it when people lash out and hurt one another on the internet (without cause), and I like it even less when Christians do it.  I wasn’t lashing out, but I couldn’t re-write the post enough to keep it from sounding negative – either towards people or towards my school.

Reason #2: everyone deals with assumptions.  I have a couple of friends who have had 4 children.  People treat them strangely.  My oldest brother teaches philosophy at a college in Elmhurst – I wonder what his life is like relative to assumptions?  So, really, reason #2 is that my blog post was not based upon a compelling point or idea.

I would prefer to write about a compelling idea or two.

I’m done with the Mentoring Posts.  I could have written for a long time – I have another brother I didn’t write about, I have another grandpa, I have other professors and authors.  Maybe I will take it up again 🙂  In the meantime, I will think about e-encouragement to readers.  Maybe a few posts/week on the Psalms.  A series on understanding God’s commands as mission.  Journaling about Julia – my beautiful, wonderful, sometimes violent 2 year old (who was fabulous on the plane to Texas yesterday – literally didn’t cry the whole time).  Have you ever seen Julia’s eyes?  They are amazing.
