I can’t believe it’s been three plus months since the last time I wrote anything here. It’s not like I haven’t done anything. Or don’t have anything to write. For those Garth Brooks fans out there, I was just listening to Much too young. That probably describes why there’s been nothing here. lately.
Maybe I’m tired ’cause our little dog’s kidneys are failing. We thought we were going to lose him last year. After much experimentation on food and meds, a whole lot of fluid injections (six days a week now), and many nights of taking him outside because of those injections, he’s actually stable.
It’s not like he’s cured. The vets think his kidneys are pretty much gone. But he still loves life. Has no pain. And has way more good days than not so good ones. Hasn’t had a bad day in a couple months.
I wrote about that on my other sites. Usually put something in here when do. But somehow, just never got it done.
For the Garth Brooks fans again, maybe I need a worn out tape of Chris LeDoux?
But then, maybe it’s my own prostate cancer? That’s been going on for almost two years now. Was on what they call active surveillance. I guess it’s a doctor’s joke to say, as opposed to benign neglect. Get it?
Anyway, after the last biopsy, there was a whole lot more cancerous cells than was expected. So now it’s time to take it out, because I’m too young to go through chemo and/or radiation. Even if I don’t always feel that young right now.
And I haven’t been to Denver in many years. But isn’t that an awesome live version of the sound – the one from Denver?
It might be from COVID lockdown syndrome, or some such thing. But then, unless I’m writing, where no one knows me, I’m too much of an introvert to get out and do all sorts of things with tons of people anyway. So that’s not too likely. In fact, it’s impossible. If I get to do a drive-through order for breakfast or lunch a couple times a week, I’m good.
The one thing that keeps me going is the writing. Even though I haven’t done it here, I have been busy. Have to start putting the excerpts and stuff over here. The problem with publishing here, as some of you know, is that we’re too limited on plugins and formatting options. It’s really hard, painful is a better word, to write the stuff I write without my own CSS and a bunch of plugins.
You know, I guess it’s two things that keep me going. The other is the class I teach at church. Great group of people who really want to get into the Bible. The Old Testament background behind the New Testament. The implications of the Greek and Hebrew words, as opposed to the often watered-down English we read. And the culture of the people back in those days. It’s great. Lots of work – researching and writing. But it’s fun.
And then there is that other “thing”, so I guess it’s three. Lot’s of time to spend with God.
Really – it’s not all that bad. Sometimes I’m just tired. Maybe I need to remember:
Ps 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
Ps 23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
Ps 23:3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Ps 23:4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
