For most of my adult life I have awakened every morning excited about doing what I got to do that day.

As a Minister of Music, Youth and/or Education, I got to do things I never would have gotten to do in any other endeavor.

For 27 years as an Announcer/Operator/Manager in christian radio, I got to do what I had never expected to be able to do.

When the economy went south, both of these activities began to suffer and eventually I had to leave them as an occupation.

Now I get up every morning to go to a job I hate, happy to have any bill-paying job at all.

The adjustment to a totally different way of life has taken its toll on my inspiration to write, and
I find myself unwilling to take what little time I have to spend it least for now.

I plan to return in the not too distant future.

For now, I will continue to read and comment on your blogs and will try to keep up with conservative news and comments.

Until my return, keep the liberal/progressives' toes to the fire.

Joe! I'm so sorry to read this! Sorry that you're taking a break, but we all need that. More concerned about the reasons you're doing so...Hopefully, this time will give you a reprieve from the hard issues we blog about - esp. b/c you're living some of them...

Maybe take some time to enjoy some out door stuff, gardening, walking, flying kites! Read something funny, or inspirational, or just plain silly! Enjoy time w/ your lovely wife, DO stop by our blogs (we NEED your voice), and get some rest.

Hope to be hearing from you soon. Until then, you're in my prayers~

"Until my return, keep the liberal/progressives' toes to the fire.?

Joe, I am truly sorry and I pray that you will become inspired once again. God has His hand upon you my friend.

Until your return, I give you my solemn promise to keep all liberals on their toes.

Hope to hear from you and look forward to your visits.
