Since the start of the year, I have been slacking off on my blog. Last year I was pretty consistent with posts at least once a week and sometimes several in a week. My lasts two posts have reflected the melancholy feeling I have found myself in with regards to my blog. Maybe it’s because of the season of life I find myself in or maybe I just blame it on the time of year. Either way, I haven’t felt like blogging much. We really haven’t been doing anything of note since the holidays. I enjoyed hanging out with some friends for the Chargers playoff game and then for the Royal Rumble PPV. I have been doing a lot of reading and have finished the first few books of the The New Jedi Order series of Star Wars novels. We bought Renee the first season of Columbo on DVD and have spent several nights watching it.
One of the main things bugging me is the silence of our close friend from France. She last spoke to us in December just before Christmas. Since that time, we haven’t heard a peep despite many e-mails and voice mails. We continue to pray for her and her family, but we just don’t know what has happened to bring about this silence after 8 years of non-stop communication. This alone may be one of the reasons for my mood of late. We miss her and her family. I hope we hear from her or her family soon and will continue to pray in the meantime.
