A new look; a new start; a new blog

As much as I loved the customized "blog togs" Cat & Co. did for me, the colors and image have come to represent a Bad Time in my life. I cringe when I see them. Sigh.

So I'm back to an off-the-rack look to my blog, to see if I can get it started again, leave the bitterness behind, forgive but not forget the personal attacks.

A new academic year. A job I no longer enjoy. A cross-roads of my life. A new blog.

You should forgive and forget. Otherwise you'll be dragging whatever that it will become an obstacle in your walk with God.

Take it from me, a guy who's also trying to forgive and forget, with mixed results.

Theo,

I'll think about what you said. To me, it's important not to forget that persecution exists even in our country where freedom of speech and freedom of religion are the law of the land. Next time I am persecuted, I hope to have a better understanding of who I am and Who Christ Is.

Joanne, let's pray for one another. After 25 years loving my job, it's an unfamiliar and unpleasant experience to dread going in to work. On the other hand, I value family & friends more than ever. And my identity doesn't need to be tied up with my occupation.
