First Light, First Day… First Time

As I sit here this morning at the kitchen table this Monday, I can see the first rays of the approaching sunrise as they find their way through the branches of the live oaks outside the kitchen window. There’s a stillness around me as there always is just as the world begins to stir. It is my favorite time of the day…

I look down to see the steam rising from my fresh mug of coffee and ask myself why I haven’t yet taken a sip…

OK, now I remember; whoa, that’s really hot― If I wasn’t entirely awake before, I am now.

Another sip… yes, that’s better, let’s get down to the business at hand, shall we?

I have neglected my poor blog most terribly over the last couple of years. Oh yes, I have posted in little bursts a time or two, but that’s about it, and the funny thing is that there really hasn’t been a reason for it other than I have just gotten out of the habit, and as habits go, blogging every day is one of my better ones, and it just sort of got away.

How come the bad ones seem to hang on and on and on…?

Well, let’s tackle that one some other time, shall we?

As I was saying, there’s really no reason for this shocking lack of posting on my part, I just didn’t do it. The funny thing is, I wanted to start back up, I’ve even had some great ideas for it… and then they were gone.

I hate it when that happens!

She Who Must be Obeyed says I need to write these things down so I don’t forget. Well, maybe other people write things like that down, but I never forget, so there!

What was I saying?

Oh right, I was talking about how I should write things down, but that I don’t need to because I always remember things. Well, I jotted a few things down the other day, this being one of them, and I’m going to return to the blogging arena effective right now:

Good Lord willing, I’ll be posting most every day from now on, I have some ideas for some new feature items, such as this, the first ever “First Light” post, and hopefully future editions will be a tad more on the actual content side of things. In any case, I hope to see you again in the near future, and by all means, don’t hesitate to drop me a line in the comments section. For now, I’ll wish everyone a blessed day; see you again soon!

    I’ve missed you while you took your mental break, but I think all of us need that. I’m glad you will be back.

    Welcome back! Missed reading your posts on a regular basis. Been praying that nothing bad had occurred. Glad to hear nothing did.
    I understand how easy it is to drop a good habit. I get nervous about my blog when I stop for a few days for traveling and have posts preset to go out, that I might not get going again.

    Looking forward to what God will lay on your heart to write about. Have a blessed day!
