Has It Come to This?

OK. Blogging has become hard work. I don't know if my passion has waned or if my creative, thoughtful juices have dried up, or if I'm over-whelmed with other things. But in an effort to keep this blog semi-active and not spend time developing my own thoughts, I offer this joke I came across:


A Highway Patrolman pulled a car over and told the driver that because he had been wearing his seat belt, he had just won $5,000 in the statewide safety competition.

"What are you going to do with the money?" asked the policeman.

"Well, I guess I'm going to get a driver's license," he answered.

"Oh, don't listen to him," yelled a woman in the passenger seat. "He's a real smart-mouth when he's been drinking."

This woke up the guy in the back seat who took one look at the cop and moaned, "I knew we wouldn't get far in a stolen car."

At that moment, there was a knock from the trunk and a voice said, in a thick Spanish accent, "Are we over the border yet?"


I do not intend for this to become some cheesy joke shop. Of course, some of you think my postings are both cheesy and a joke.

Oh well.

"The Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." Our Lord had it about right, at least as far as blogging goes. Trying to juggle ministry, teaching summer classes, and family time just puts a wrench in blogging - these guys who can burn the midnight oil to blog have my respect - I don't see how they are doing it myself - or is it the fact that I am just getting old?

I'm with you brother!

I'm picking up some steam, Rob.

Ditto on the "dry spell". I think it's the summer slump. Not much is happening that can stir me to tickle the keyboard with creative clicks.

I wanted to be in Oklahoma at the Annual Founders Conference this week. I guess I'm just sad.
