Hello there my WordPress friends,
When I started writing Reinventing the We’ll three years ago I was a very different man. So much has changed and that was the point of the blog really…change.
R.T.W. and the people who read it have been used by God as a great source of strength through some very difficult times…again times of change. I certainly didn’t see what was coming: My kids went off to school and now two are graduating and planning to go off to Master’s programs; Pastor Wrinkles was born out of a youth group joke. Then I promptly retired from youth ministry turning Pastor Wrinkles into a nomme de plume here on RTW; I started the chapter charts and Heaven posts and rediscovered my love for in-depth Bible study… and photography (thanks Cee!); C.cada artist’s community was born; My sister moved to the Netherlands and I moved back to my childhood home; Certain things in my life died and though I miss them I realize dwelling on the past only helps if it informs the future against more idiotic mistakes… so I have said to myself , “Grieve…and move on…change!”
I come to the end of this chapter suddenly, it seems. I find myself never alone and alone all at once in the presence of an extremely gracious God who has ridden the rapids with me and kept me in the boat! I won’t be stupid enough to suggest that all my changes are done or that the rapids are far- gone up river; But I know that “R.T.W.” has taken me as far as it can go.
So I am unloading this boat called “Reinventing the We’ll” onto the shores of a new land (…err blog that is) called “Lillie-Put”
(yes my middle name is Elon stop laughing). I am taking some of the most precious things from “RTW” along with me including: Jesus (I go nowhere without Him), Pastor Wrinkles, C.cada, photography, Heaven, and hopefully you!
We have whole new world to discover together. So won’t you come along for the walk? Here, grab a lantern and let’s go!
