If I can't write, than I get really grumpy...a paraphrase quote of an interview Newsweek did in the past with Madeleine L'Engle.
I echo this feeling. Lately I've been doing a lot of reading. I've been brushing up on my medieval history, as well as reading the thoughts my friends are putting on their blogs. So, my thoughts in writing today are reflective of what I've been reading.
My friend James has his blog at www.steepcrag.blogspot.com and I'd recommend reading it. A history teacher currently studying for his Masters in History...he's got some good thoughts this week especially on Holy Week.
My friend Jason is a M.Div student at Westminster in Philadelphia and has a blog at www.doyouseegod.com and I've kept up with it for several months. He has this uncanny ability to see God in all sorts of small parts of live, and the even greater ability to share it with people on his blog.
And so, what is my blog about? I've been wrestling off and on with a theme. I've titled it merely Jamie's Wanderings, because I married a vagabondo (a wanderer) who never quite feels at home anywhere we go. This feeling is contagious, even though every time I see Chicago in a movie my heart says "HOME".
But Andrew takes comfort in a quote from Lord of the Rings, All who wander are not lost...and I'd like to take off on that.
My wanderings and musings may or may not be spiritual on this blog. However, I want to show the world through my feeble writings that I am not lost, but rather being led to wander.
