I surrender

Well, I have wanted to write many a time this last week, and again this morning, but alas I have met my match. Preparing for my classes this semester, along with the endless considerations of my side work, and the rest of life, has left me with no intellectual time and space for anything else.

I am certain I will be able to write now and again, but this semester seems it may be a wash for my blog. That makes me very sad, as this is my spirit’s playground, but such it is.

I am grateful for all who read here and ask you to hang in there, as I expect in May I will return full force. All in God’s providence.

Peace and joy.

    Dr. Neal,

    Wishing you all the best. Lent will have more meaning without reading your insightful blog.

    Peace, now and always

    Tom, I will miss you posts, but understand!! I have been adjusting to a new job, coaching bowling, and trying to keep the household afloat during the government shutdown. I am trying to play catch up this weekend. I still won’t get everything done. Thanks for the song. Tell the family hello for me.
    God Bless!

    I understand. Best to you in all you do. Peace and all good and God’s blessings to you.

  4. Very understandable but you will be sorely missed.

    I will miss your posts during this hiatus! Your writing always touches me and I have no doubt God uses your insightful words to guide me, correct me (always in a gentle and liberating way!) and strengthen me as much of what you write strikes to the core of my doubts, questions and musings in my faith journey. I find myself re-reading much of what you write and lingering on the message that God conveys to me through your insight. I will trust that He will use other conduits of grace and wisdom to keep me on my toes during your break 😜 Best of luck to you during this busy season of life!

    The Holy Spirit is planning something great come May! Can’t wait to see what happens on the other side.

    Dear friend — You have given so much to so many (including your family) seems like you’ve saved nothing for yourself. Stop worrying about us and take care of Tom!

    No worries… your life and family come first!
    We can read old posts … that will keep us going for a while ….
    You take care of yourself.
    Peace To All

    I am with Maureen – plenty of old post to refer to when I feel the call. Perfect example, this was posted on 2/2 and I am just reading 11 days later ? !
    You will have the call to share something with us. And you don’t always need to “write”. You can always share Ashley & Marie . . . 🙂
    God bless you and your family.
