And then I just quit blogging…. Â I didn’t call it Â a blog back then because Â I’d never even heard of a blog. Â I don’t know if anybody had. Â I just called it my “Online Journal” andÂ had no idea how far ahead of the curve I was. Â I don’t know why I quit. Â I just did. Â It was way before WordPress or blogspot. Â Nobody could subscribe or leave commentsÂ so I had no idea, at the time, if anybody was even reading it so I just gave it up. Â I found out years later that a few people were actually reading and enjoying my old school blog. Â I wish I would have known that then, maybe I would have kept it going but oh well, Â Whatcha gonna do??
It has been really fun to reread these old Journal posts and walk through the days when I was just getting started in this phase of my ministry. Â The posts about my Dad’s cancer and death were especially interesting and I plan to revisit them and look at how things have changed in the 10 years since he passed. Â The goofy post about planting all those trees is also funny to me now because those trees are 15 feet tall now and Elli & Nick are nearly grown! Â There is a lot of perspective on that one I couldn’t have begun to see at the time. Â I’ll revisit these topics, the I Have a Reason stuff, and more in upcoming blogs.
If you want a good laugh check out the Old School Runks.com where these Journal posts were actually posted. Â I was doing the website myself and had no idea what I was doing. Â It’s so bad it looks like a website straight out of the 8O’s! hahahhahha
I don’t really know how to end this thing so I guess I’ll just “kick it old school” and go out like I did back in the day!
God Bless ya – Runks
