Nothing to Say
The saying goes that when you have nothing good to say, then say nothing at all.
Due to a head full of sinus sludge, I've struggled today to write anything good, even though I'm under a deadline to get marketing copy done.
So, when I can't seem to concentrate, I find myself floating from one thing to the next. I've read a lot of author blogs today.
Over on Petticoats & Pistols where Mary Connealy hangs out, I enjoyed a discussion of the average age in 1800s. I was just having a similar discussion with someone about the average age being 40 and how that immediately makes us think no one 50 or older was walking around those days.
Through a bunny trail that may have started with Angela Hunt's blog, I found this post by pastor and author John Piper. The October 22 article is "Let Christians Vote as if They Were Not Voting," and I'm now (of course because I'm rushing to end my day) having trouble loading the site. You should find it at www.desiringgod.org/Blog.
It is a good reminder of how we need to remain grounded in Christ no matter how the world changes around us and the insight applies to much more than just the current voting issues, so I thought you might enjoy reading it too in place of any insight from me.
Hopefully I'll have a book preview for you tomorrow.
