With apologies to Ringo Star, “ya know, it don’t come easy”. No, I haven’t been writing much lately. It’s so much easier to sit in my recliner and let ALS exhaustion envelop me. Everything I do any more takes so much energy and effort, whether getting dressed,running an errand, or sitting at my computer to work. Sure, I have some ideas to write about but they come and go and nothing gets written. Time has gotten blurry, and it’s hard to find things that really matter; it’s so hard to care. I’m on the downhill slope. In fact, this weekend I was wondering if God was giving me permission to quit trying to make a difference (I’m “retiring” from my communications work with the Presbyterian churches in the state. By September I’ll be unable to attend meetings).
But for whatever reason this morning is different. There are still some stories to be told while I can still tell them, perhaps a thought or two that may yet inspire someone about Jesus. I won’t promise that my writing will pick up, but I’m gonna try, depending that some how the Holy Spirit will give me the diligence I need.
