James' Return to the Blog

I have no good excuse; just laziness. This time in my life is very difficult, but that is the time when we should be focused even more on God. I should be leaning more heavily on His strength. Since my last entry a lot has happened.

Regarding work, I can’t be specific but I will say, it has become almost impossible to deal with. I/we are in over our heads. My poor beautiful wife is stressed beyond any comprehension. In fact, I believe the word “stressed” is thrown around too often.

Regarding health, I’ve gone through an intense case of mono which knocked me out for a couple of weeks although I only missed a week of work (it was impossible for me to miss more). The mono attacked my throat and liver. I could barely swallow without taking 3 Advil every 6 hours and then I had to fast for the ultra-sound on my liver. I think the pain I was in was worse than anything I’ve ever experienced. Yes, I did cry like a baby trying to take the Advil after what ended up being a 13 hour fast. It was horrible. I’m still a little weak but I’m healing quickly. (by the way, I think Carl’s Jr.’s Spit Loaded Breakfast Burrito was the cause. CJ’s is out.)

Anyway, all this to say, I will be back to blogging soon. I need to return to my routine of studying God’s word every morning so it is my main focus all day. I hope to get going tomorrow morning.


  1. Sorry to hear you've been so sick and that work has been so stressful. Stress is not good for you. I hope that you WILL seek God's strength and also some relief from the present conditions. God bless you both!

  2. hey brother sorry to hear the sadness goes on..

    I'll pray to. In the meantime you can refresh yourself by watching a midnight showing of War of the Worlds tomorrow night!
