Yes it has been almost that long since my last post here. I am aware that two and a half years is a long time to leave a blog untended. I do apologize to anyone who might have read my last post and been expecting the next installment. It’s not as if I forgot this blog. There was just stuff that I had to do and things that I had to deal with before I could come back to it.
– When I began this blog I was in the process of moving out of one house and into another that I was still building.
– I was in the midst of a major life adjustment, shifting from one style of living to another.
– As always seems to be the case, God had some pending work he needed to do within me. While I am deeply grateful to Him for always improving and bettering me, the process often ends up being a very rough and unpleasant ride. So far the pattern in my adult life has been that my spiritual self has frequent “growth spurts” – times when my maturity as a man deepens and develops. I go through periods of testing and growth that might last a few months or a few years. In the midst of these periods I find it difficult to write anything insightful. I suppose you really can’t write about life lessons until you have learned them.
Anyway, I have done a bit more growing and maturing since my last post and am ready to continue with the story of my testimony. So, read on for part three.
