Pausing the blog for now.

It's been a good ride but I think that this blog has come to its useful end for now.

It once was a good tool for me to get thoughts out of my head into the blog. Now, I find I'm busy with work, family and other commitments. I still write but I only have time to add it in a journal.

You can find me on Facebook these days.

Wednesday's Willardism

"We will come to understand that for the most part our hurry is really based upon pride, self-importance, fear and lack of faith, and rarely upon the production of anything of true value for anyone." (Dallas Willard - "The Great Omission" page 29)

Willardism of the Day

"Solitude well practiced will break the power of busyness, haste, isolation and loneliness. You will see the world is not on your shoulders after all." (Dallas Willard - "The Great Omission" pg 36)
