My apologies to my loved ones for taking so long to start this blog. I don’t expect many to read this blog but here are just few reasons why I have decided to go through with this:
- My family and friends know me well enough to know that I am not the best at keeping in touch and hopefully this will be just one avenue to keep you updated as to what’s going on in my life. I ensure you this is not a replacement for any type of communication that we could possibly have but I wanted something quick and accessible to my loved ones. Hopefully my lovely fiancée will keep me accountable…
- If you are anything like me there are times when God gives grace to the believer to see his lack of thirst and hunger for holiness. Often resulting in a disappointing attempt to link the void between the affections of the Christian and the reality and grandeur of a holy God. I am hoping this blog is one method to express the heart of God as He has and is revealing it to me. I do want to note that not all that I post will be a direct example of this. As a people who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ we see the world through redeemed eyes hence I have designated this blog as The Crimson Window. This was in part inspired by the old hymn by Isaac Watts called “Windows of Thy Grace.”
- If we have ever had a serious conversation it doesn’t take long to notice how I sometimes find it difficult to convey my thoughts. Awkward pauses, repeating sentences, scrounging around for the right words, using bad synonyms, ridiculous analogies and illustrations, and just when I think I’ve actually made an intelligible statement……a rabbit trail…! This is one exercise that may help bring some resolve to this issue and bring focus. Writing I have noticed in my life brings organization, which on most occasions brings clarity. God has given us minds to think clear and wonderful thoughts about Himself.
- I often run into the most bizarre, interesting, and often times entertaining things on the internet. I am quick and eager to share these….
