And now…This!

If you attend RCA Church in Ridgecrest you know that is how I transition from the announcements to the sermon bumper. I like it a lot, but I stole the idea from John Oliver, who is just parodying old school TV News, so there you have it: I’m not original! That’s OK though, as Pablo Picasso said “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” This isn’t just for artists, it translates into life as well. Sometimes we take the things that we’ve experienced and repackage them in a way that makes sense to us. So now I’m stealing from myself. Everyday is another day, right? They don’t all stack up the same so often times I try to find a way to stack them up in a new way so that I can make it through until tomorrow happens.

Yesterday our worship team said “Goodbye” to a valued family member. I chose to see that she is just going a little further down the road and remembered that we will still see each other when she comes home to visit. Talking about and over coffee will still happen, it’ll just be long distance. And now this…

This weekend I took a trip to Legoland with my kids and grand kids. When I opened up my Facebook app I noticed that once again my account had been disabled “courtesy” of some people who don’t particularly care for the old me. Is it a hassle? Certainly. But if I give up, they win, and we all know that Love Wins!!! So I started a new one…and then ANOTHER new one when that one got crushed in a matter of hours (as of this writing I am now “Zack Lee Wright”, go friend me!). And now this…

So what’s my point? I’ll be honest, sometimes I don’t really know either. I guess it’s just my way of saying that things are always happening. There are 7 billion people on this planet and in a way we are all roommates. We’ll get on each other’s nerves. But we’ll also have some fun making memories. When the trials come, and they will come, just remind yourself that this is just a transition. And now this…

–Rise Up!!

      1. I’m chuckling because when I was an opinion columnist at a newspaper I would start my articles with one thought, transitioned into another thought and drew the two thoughts together at the end. I do the same thing in my novels. Since I write Christian romance and investigative mystery, I jump between the two as I write, interweaving two stories. Often a chapter name will have two meanings, one for each side of the story. As a columnist my staff Nick named my column “Whats My Point?”
