It has been a month since I last blogged. I plan to do much better next year. This year my doctoral thesis took up most of my time the first five months. My son and his family came in for the summer June through August and that took up the next three months. By the time September arrived I was out of the habit of blogging. October and November my clerking responsibilities for both our local Baptist association and our State Association required my undivided attention. Now Christmas is upon us and all the activities which it brings keeps me busy. I shall get back into blogging in January if the Lord be willing. God bless you.
