"What happened to your Blog?" and plans for the new year

The Christmas Season has been a wonderful time this year. Time spend with family and good friends, time spent reflecting on Jesus Christ, and time spend traveling have all made the season special to me. Because of that I have not blogged since Thanksgiving (and not much in the month before that either). On Christmas Eve my daughter (the oldest, who is 25 and has given my wife and I two beautiful grandchildren) asked what happened to my blog? She had noticed that I had not posted at all in quite a while.

My answer to her was short and true, if not thorough. "I've been busy" is what I told her, but there's a lot more to it than that.

The truth is that the animus of politics (generated by the Democrats hate for President Bush) has risen to such intense levels that I needed to give myself a break from it. I used to think that posting my thoughts would help me crystallize them, making them more complete. I thought that discussion of events would be productive in letting people disagree know that we on the "right" side of the spectrum are not evil. But now I'm thinking that there is no changing what the left thinks about us because they are sick (Bush hatred is an illness) and there is no way to talk with them in any meaningful way.

I don't know when I will begin blogging regularly again, or what I will blog about, but for now I'm not blogging on politics.

Best wishes to all for a very happy new year

Thank you for the update. I have checked here regularly, and was hoping you were ok. I understand your decision not to post on politics anymore - a steady diet of reading about hatred and outright lies does no one any good. It's a shame, though, because it's blogs like yours that make us think, remind us we are not alone in seeking the truth, and give a forum to post comments on posts that have always been thoughtfully written.

I wish you all the best, and I'll still keep checking in case you make sporadic posts.

God bless you and yours

Concur with annonymous - you provide thoughtful comment and I enjoy your blog. While I understand this is not about winning/losing for you or your readers (me included) - reminds me of what dear old Dad taught me when I was in the middle of tortuous teenage years -the other guy wins when you let him get under your skin. You're doing a great thing in sharing your thoughts - keep it up and I'll be here to read your blog! Thank you -
