Let's get it started

Hi Everyone. I'm sorry it's been a while since I last wrote some thing but you know how life can be. The importance of things that aren't that important get in the way and then you forget about what you should be doing.

Life has been pretty mad of late and my wife and I are trying to work out where we're meant to be, what job I'm supposed to be doing, etc. Speaking of which, I have decided to go back into journalism after 6 years as a full-time carpenter. I have enjoyed my job but journalism is what I was trained in and after laying it down just before I got married I now feel it's time to go back into it.

It wasn't a decision I took lightly, either. These kinds of decisions take lots of thought and prayer because I don't wish to lead my family down a cul-de-sac but make sure they are safe and have a regular income. My carpentry job has been brilliant in terms of finance but it's got to the point where my love for the job has grown less and less and I cannot go on any longer knowing that my heart just isn't in it.

Journalism is my passion. I love writing and I actually miss it so much that I wonder why I ever came to the decision to give it up. Well, actually, the reason I gave it up was because I felt God told me to so I guess you can say that choice had a fair degree of substance to it. But now I feel God is preparing me for more writing. I hope it's more to do with Him than cars and stuff but I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Other stuff going on in my life include being in a band. I am the bass player for a band called Jagged Dogz which I enjoy massively. I didn't think for one moment that after spending 16 years playing bass in church I'd end up in a rock band but it kinda just happened. We have written a few tracks now and one is going to be used in a film called The Estate which is a pretty violent film but I'm happy to be a light in the darkness, if nothing else.

There's nothing much else to say write now but I am going to start making more regular contributions to this and please tell your friends to read it because I'm going to use this as my spiritual soap box from now on and I really want to reach people I don't even know. After all, it's not Christians who need the gospel, it's for everyone else.

Right. Time to go but as I say, please tell your friends. Ta x
