Alan Jackson sang about them a few years ago. He claimed that there “ain’t no cure” for them. Well, I dunno, but I do seem to have them. Just feel like I am in a creative funk- like the well is a little dry.
I know reading is the best way to rejuvinate the mind. I am reading The Way of the Wild Heart by John Eldridge, but not at the pace I prefer. I still have Simply Christian by Wright on my desk shelf just waiting for me. And there are a couple of smaller books that I need to read to help me prepare for some upcoming class series that I plan to teach. I need to go to the beach (or mountains) for a week and just read. That would be awesome.
I am working on plans for fall sermons and classes. The sermon focus will be on the Ten Commandments. My idea for a class is still evolving but I think I have settled on an overall theme of Truth versus Tradition . This should be really interesting.
I enjoyed going over last Wednesday to the Fort Walton Beach church and participating in their Wednesday summer series. What a great church! Their preacher is Jeff Custer and he is a neat guy. I would like to get to know him better. I have a couple of more Wednesday night appointments like this in the area later. I know they will be fun too.
On the homefront we are having a sunroom added to our house. It is interesting watching it go up and we are looking forward to enjoying it. Specifically we will use it as a play room for our kids.
As for a family summer vacation, we are only taking an abbriviated one for a few days to the Big Easy to take in the aquarium and zoo. Our bigger trip will come in the snow somewhere- skiing in the winter.
I hope your summertime is going well!
