Friends, I apologize for the long delay in posting new material to my blog. Unfortunately, the prolonged crash of the web server in July coincided with my plans for vacation. I appreciate the strenuous efforts of Karissa H. for going above and beyond the call of duty to get the Charis site and my own “Seasons” blog running again.
This combination of events and other conversations has led me to a “season” of discernment. I regret that my CRPS limits my energy and ability to do all that I would like to do. In truth, no matter our health, we all need to live within our abilities – what my therapist calls “a sustainable rhythm.” It sounds so simple, so common sense, but it’s among the most difficult things I’ve ever tried to do. I’d like to write a blog entry twice a week, read and review new books, write a journal article or two a year, write a book on Job, a memoir, and so much more. But I can’t do what I want to do, all the things I did before CRPS took hold of my life. So I learn (stubbornly), I adjust (even more stubbornly), and sometimes I need to reassess. Sooner or later, we all face this struggle as we get older and/or deal with illness.
The Chris blog will soon be transitioning to (hopefully) a more stable platform. In time, I will provide the redirect link to this site; it will house materials that I have already written and posted. I’d like to keep “Seasons” (my blog) going and growing, but I’d also like to do other things. At present, I need time to discern what’s best from what’s good. And honestly, I don’t know what that means for the future of “Seasons.”
I would appreciate your prayers. Please know that I appreciate everyone who follows my writings in whatever form they may appear. I promise to honor your support by keeping you informed as I reach decisions about my blog.
Many blessings to you all, Glenn
