Hello there.

Well. Hello there. Yes, despite all evidence to the contrary, the blog really isn’t dead. Not yet, anyway.

I met someone recently who said to me “I heard you like to write.” I paused and stammered out some semblance of a reply, all the while wondering, do I? Like to write? I think I do. Or maybe I used to.

Anyway, that exchange prompted me to at least attempt to revive the blog, however short-lived said revival may be. And y’all know as well as I do that if past experience is any indicator…

Though I haven’t been blogging, I have been busy with real life and all its joys and responsibilities and laundry. Here’s a small peek into what I’ve been up to.

I finished up our year of Bible study a couple of weeks ago and y’all know how sappy that makes me. This year, this group, this study, it is no different. I love those ladies; I love studying God’s Word with them; I miss our Tuesdays together terribly. We usually break until September and I gotta tell you, that’s a long time! I told my husband it’s a pitiful thing for a Bible teacher to be without a class.

But I have been busy cramming preparing to teach a conference at my dear friend’s church in south Louisiana. Four sessions! I am so excited. And just a little overwhelmed. And humbled. And thrilled. And nervous. The last time I taught a multi-session event was at a retreat and I got the stomach virus. It was horrible. Here’s hoping for a better experience this time! Oh, and if any of you dear readers are in the area, shoot me an email and I’ll give you the details.

And…I’ve been invited to speak at a local moms’ group which is awesome. I love encouraging young moms, mainly because I needed it so much as a young(er) mom myself. 🙂

I do write, sometimes anyway. I wrote a post at Out of the Ordinary a week or so ago that I forgot to link here. It’s my second contribution in our series on the church. You can find it by clicking here.

To file in the surreal—as in I-can’t-believe-this-is-happening—category: we took my number three son on a college tour. I’m not sure how this is possible as I’m fairly certain that last time I checked he was a mere 8 years old. It’s not right, I tell you.

I am loving spring and sunshine and warm weather. Winter really did a number on me this year and as a result I cannot get enough of the sun. As I am writing this I am looking out to our back yard and the blue skies and bright sun and it makes me happy.

So there’s a brief snapshot of life as I know it. Since you can’t depend on the blog (obviously) you can occasionally find me on other social media as well. I’m on Twitter and Instagram, both with the user name @lisa_writes. You can click through the links to follow over there on the right sidebar.

If you’re reading this I want to say thank you! I’ve been plugging away at the blog for almost nine years, more or less. Okay, less. One thing that hasn’t changed is my bewilderment that anyone would actually care to read my rambling thoughts. So thanks, readers, and here’s hoping future posts find their way to the blog soon. Maybe. We’ll see…

  1. I totally relate to this post, Lisa! And I’m still here for whenever you DO decide to publish something on your blog.

  2. Motherhood does strange things to us. My oldest is married with 3 of his own children and my youngest will be 30 next month…where does the time go? It’s good to read that you are well and that God is opening doors to work through you, He’s so awesome! Many blessings along the way, I’m quite sure! Cindy

  3. Glad you’re having opportunities to teach and speak, even if not with a weekly Bible study crowd. Makes me wish I were in your part of the world so I could sit in 🙂
