Here Comes the Hiatus

Posted by on Jan 31, 2018 in Faith, Hope, and Love, Weekly Debriefs 2018

Hi All,

Quick word, fast and loose. I’m headed to sunny southern California early tomorrow morning, and my ability to blog with any consistency and ease is uncertain at best and most likely, unlikely.

That being said, No weekly debriefs will hit this Saturday (2/3) or next (2/10), but the past few days of this week since the debrief on 1/27 have been good.

My Buds and me doing a selfie (kinda)

Well, January is wrapping up faster than I would have expected. This time next week we’ll be in February, and I’ll be in California to see wonderful friends for a week. As of now, I’m looking forward to a busy few days of work, prep, travel, and good times. I expect it to be even better than this past week, which wasn’t all that bad itself.

Others Will Help You Survive the Pain. Do the Same

Life is hard. Survival requires work ; thriving, even more. Perhaps the best truth one can accept is that you are going to experience more hurt, pain, and suffering than you expect. Things may go well for a season, but challenges will come. They are coming. They will be here sooner than you think. This is true for human beings. It may be an unfavorable reality, but the sooner you accept it, the better your life will be.

Of course, what’s also true is that things will be calm and peaceful again; or at least they have the capacity to. And YOU have a great deal with that outcome. But it will go far better for you if you are not alone.

I find it hard to believe that we are already more than halfway through the first month of 2018. But time flies when—well, time just flies regardless. This year has started well, and I believe it will continue to¬† be great. I have a pretty full ten days ahead before heading to Southern California for vacation. I cannot express how excited I am for that trip. We’ll be seeing some great friends, eating great food, and hopefully drinking in plenty of warm sunshine. I think my soul will be well fed for the month of February. But we’re still some days from takeoff, so how bout a look at the last week.

This past weekend, the United States celebrated the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who in my estimation may be one of the single greatest figures our country has ever produced.

Of course, the United States America and its citizenry are very prone to elevate individuals rather than groups, to find figureheads to place far above the many people that make them the success that they are. The Civil Rights Era of the 1960’s was no different, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is specifically celebrated because he became something of the “face of the movement”. The truth, however, is that countless individuals contributed to the progress made during this historic time, and these individuals were as integral to the movement as Dr. King.
