Inaugural Blog

So I'm sitting in a MinistryCOM conference listening to what is the latest and coolest way for churches to communicate and I hear about blogging. Mind you, I have not been in a cave for the last five to six years and completely unaware of what blogging was or even it's purpose. It just hit me . . . I want to start. Why? Not sure. Just honoring the impression.

My first attempts at blogging were on a family trip to China to adopt our little girl, Gigi. Thought the family and friends back home would want to hear about our daily goings on in the Far East, so I wrote emails to a list of interested and chronicled our trip. Looking back, I'm glad I did.

Maybe that is why I've started. I felt like I made a contribution to my small world letting them in on what our life was like for that two weeks. Kind of a cartharsis. Maybe that is why I am moved to blog these days. Not sure what will come of it . . . we shall see. (Who the heck is we?)
