Something’s Gotta Give!


Between doing my exceedingly complex taxes, writing & editing for my business, waking the farm from its long winter’s nap, picking up the slack while my wife’s been sick, fighting the Wal-Mart that’s supposedly coming to town, trying to fight the RealID monstrosity, editing a novel and novella for publication, and writing another novel…well, this boy is strung out!

What’s gotta give? The finale of my series “Banking on God.”  The bad news is that I won’t be able to finish it this week, especially since the final posts will be on the tough financial times we are facing as individuals, churches, and a nation. Plenty to say on that, and I want to give it proper attention.

So I’ll be picking up the series next Monday, I hope. Thanks for understanding.

Meanwhile, here are a few links you should check out if you haven’t already:

Jan at the view from her (which is possibly my favorite blog title) regularly discusses a number of issues facing Christian singles, especially from the female point of view. Though I long ago tied the knot, I was single long enough to still resonate with much of Jan writes. Plenty of great insights into Christin living in general, too.

Travis at On the Other Hand talks some of the same financial smack as I do here, but interspersed with talk on comic books! How cool is that?

Rick at RickIaniello charts that wise middle course on all things theological. Lots of common sense Christianity at that blog. Love the “I’m gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse” photo of Rick + cigar.

The Pearcey Report is the online news source of first regard should I need a dose of newsblogging. Plenty of secular news, plus news of peculiar interest to Christians.

Milton at Transforming Sermons gives Cerulean Sanctum a lot of link love. Here’s to you, Milton, for locating consistently superb writing from other fine bloggers and sharing it with us.

And lastly, if you love genuine horror stories, check out Mish’s insights at his Global Economic Trend Analysis blog. Read enough posts there and you’ll be ready for the finale of my series next week! (HT: Oengus Moonbones)

Have a great weekend,

    Well, Dan, just this once we’ll give you an extension!

    Have you considered cloning yourself? How can you possibly get everything done?

    Looking forward to the grand finale.

    • Dave,

      My family no longer knows who I am.

      It used to be that every household had a crazy aunt in the attic. Here, it’s an unshaven bum hunched over a keyboard in what’s supposed to be the dining room but instead features computers, fax machines, laser printers, and filing cabinets.

      Not quite as menacing, but just as strange.

    • Rick,

      The taxes got done faster than I thought they would, though I’m not sure how. Normally it takes me days and this year had even more paperwork!

      Still, I think I’m getting sick, so the rest may be forced. We’ll see.

      Glad to feature your blog. You tackle great topics and do so with more common spiritual sense than the vast majority of bloggers. Plus, you’re a Cincinnatian, so that counts big!

  2. Oh, Dan, I’m blushing!

    I hear you on RealID… our family is planning a trip around its implementation deadline so that the grandparents can see Katie and Joshua one more time before our blessed fascist dictatorship prevents us from further air travel (to protect us from ourselves, of course). 🙂

    Meanwhile, how many undocumented folks are slipping across our borders every day?

    Ugh. I’d think the nation was run by idiots if I didn’t know about the NAU…
