Sorry, I Can’t Do It

I’m sorry. But this month is shot and I’m sitting here staring at the keyboard and the screen and just can’t seem to write anything. I’m even having trouble writing this.

My wife insists I take the afternoon off. Might as well try it.

Please, please feel entirely free to start profound, witty, and exciting conversations wherever you have room to leave a comment. That way I can say we’re having an experiment to see if readers can write the blog

I hope I can return and get to work in a couple of hours. Well, I pray I can, at least.

  1. “Smart people learn from everything and everyone, average people from their experiences, stupid people already have all the answers.” – Socrates

  2. “We defeated a very corrupt establishment, and have kept our promise to the American people. And it’s driving them crazy!” -President Donald J. Trump
    I’ll be back when I can think of something “profound, witty and exciting” to say. You’re so much better at it…

  3. Well, I’m afraid I won’t be much help today (if ever) as my brain feels as if it had been beaten with an electric mixer, my fingers do not want to hit the right keys, and ,,, things are not cooperating at all. I have to prepare a Bible study for the meeting on Wednesday and if I can get that done I will be happy.

  4. You are probably struggling with “crazy news overload.” It’s the stuff and the basis for nightmares and wild dreams. I’ve begun to use Fridays (the starting of the Sabbath) as a day to chill and to stay away from the news whether it’s news programs, news articles, facebook, etc. I had to make that decision to take a day off and chill because I noticed I’ve become more aggravated by some things and numb to other things and I was having difficulty thinking about what it is I have to do for myself, my husband, my job, my home, my church, and especially, my time with the Lord in reading His Word and praying.

    1. It feels like I’ve got to write 100 stories and hand them in by 5:00. I just didn’t know where to begin.
      I try to stay away from the nooze on Sunday, but sometimes it comes looking for me.

    2. I advise a news sabbath, for everyone. There are forces at work here that we cannot even begin to influence. Sometimes, all we can do is watch.

    1. Well, it’s sort of my job to keep track of what’s going on, as bad as it is–and to sound the trumpet when I see danger. Which of course is all the time.
