In case you missed reading posts about the Church, God’s work in my life, racial issues and so on, I’m baaaack! I’m writing this informal post to let you know why I haven’t written in several months: I haven’t had a laptop of my own for the past two months, but praise God! He blessed me with generous friends and sufficient resources during the first half of the semester, and as the second half begins, I have a PC of my own. I bought a refurbished Barbie pink laptop, which, after being sent to the wrong post office and lost for a week, arrived at my door on Thursday.
Now I can blog more easily again! My insides have been shriveling without this writing outlet, this place to create and be productive; to process life and to share the news of God’s goodness, hope and coming glory; to talk about the Church and why and how we should act and love people well. I thrive through writing. It rejuvenates me, and I hope this blog can encourage you. I thank God for the written word, for the internet, for my laptop and for this blog.
I have a list of topics about which to write, but comment below or send me an email if you want me to address something specific or elaborate on a previous blog or conversation. For example, I hope to keep writing about race and ethnic issues for the sake of the Church. God has blessed me with the opportunity to take a class on race and ethnic relations this semester, and if you’re friends with me on social media, you may know I post about racial issues fairly often. I’ve been able to see God work in people’s hearts over time and have been blessed to participate in some of those growing conversations recently. I’d love to keep talking with you about these and other things. I plan on updating you, dear readers, on my pre-missionary journey as well. Get excited for that!!
I can’t wait to begin blogging again! God bless!
