Back in the Saddle Again . . .

Although I am, in fact, a fan of hard rock music, this post is not in deference to Aerosmith’s song bearing the same name.  Rather, it’s just a note to say that blogging has resumed at deaconchris.com.

saddle3I can’t tell you exactly how many times I’ve been asked why I haven’t been blogging, but I can share with you the response I’ve given each time:  “I’ve been busy, wrapped up with this or that.”  And I’ve delivered that line convincingly.

But, while it is true, it’s not the root of my electronic silence.  This last weekend marked one year from the Von Maur shooting.  The last entry I posted was related to that tragedy, and it’s something I think about regularly, and pray about even more often.  One of the heroines is the sister of a friend of mine.

Each time I log onto my blog and see the entry it brings sadness to me a new, and renews feelings about the same.  In a way, I’ve liked that fact that the heroes and heroines of Von Maur were displayed with prominence for all this time.  I just didn’t feel right about blogging with something inconsequential afterward (cooking, or what-not).

But it’s time now to begin again.  A new liturgical calendar is upon us, new hope is given us, and,  mourning has broken, so to speak.

Welcome back to my electronic musings — and thank you for your understanding.
