Since my last post's title was about taking the plunge, this one could be about biting the bullet. A few minutes ago I had this realization about my lack of blogging. I mean besides the typical busy life and facebook is easier kind of realizations. The things that I most want to write about are fairly controversial. This is a challenge for a nonconfrontational type of person such as myself. Some of the things that I feel most passionate about are in no particular order... when I find myself in a church that doesn't have a tabernacle I can't help but feel tremendously sad about what the parishioners are missing; how our family often feels like we have more in common with more public schoolers than homeschoolers these days; how when I voted the other day and the volunteer said "oh I see you have no party affiliation" and my reply was "and I'm proud of it"... and how I feel strongly that Jesus would have no party affiliation either; how much I hate guns; how I feel very strongly that marriage is between a man and a woman, but I still find myself a little middle of the road on the whole chick-fil-a controversy...we all sin, plenty of men and women manage to make a mockery out of the sacrament of matrimony, and I could go on and on. Put another way I'm going to keep going to chick-fil-a and loving it, but my kids are going to keep doing theatre (where the definitions of these things are a little looser) and we love that too! How I feel it's important not to shelter kids from bad things because exposure and good conversations can be the best teacher. How's that for a little controversy on a Friday afternoon? That's only the tip of the iceberg!

It's my blog and I'll rant if I want to. You are more than welcome to diasgree with me, but I'd rather not see the disagreements in the comment box.
