I had a very long conversation with my wife tonight about dreaming, the reason being that I’ve become really bad at it. Or I think so anyway. I have a billion thoughts, ideas ,wishes, hopes and yes, dreams, a week, but I defer them or intentionally put them on the back burner. The reasons vary.
Edit: When I say “my crap prayer”, I don’t mean that I think this prayer is stupid, I just use the word “crap” a few times and it was how I felt at the time. There you go.
You may have read my bible fast post last month. If not, please do before you read this prayer – maybe you’ll understand where I’m coming from. This morning, for the first time since that post, I spent some time just talking to God. This is what came out.
I’ve had a few conversations and read a bit about the various things people have been giving up for lent. I really didn’t have anything specific that I felt that strong about fasting. I don’t know what that says about me but I have given up one thing, kind of by accident. I’ve given up my quiet time.
So this is awkward. I feel like the friend that you ran into a while ago and who promised to stay in touch and then stays quiet for one half and three quarters of an eternity. There have been good reasons for my silence – getting married, moving, massive Christmas with the family, honeymoon, starting work again – but I’m not one for excuses. I’ve wondered what the first post would be to re-energise this blog and get this year going with a huge bang. And here it is. Nothing. Yes I have nothing.
