20 Words Making a Comeback, and Other News…

20 words coming backThis post might be catching you off guard because I’ve been AWOL lately. I’ve taken some time away from blogging due to a hectic schedule. That’s been a good thing.

But I haven’t taken time away from writing. Lately, I’ve been writing a bunch of 20 Words poems, which long-time readers will recognize. This is one of the few things that multiple people have always told me they enjoyed.

So my big commitment for 2014 is going to be to post one new 20 Words every day. Yep. Every day.

It might be awesome. It might be terrible.

But at the end of it, I think we’ll have something special.

One of the big reasons for only committing to posting something so short (which actually takes longer to write than you might think) is because I’ll be starting seminary next year if all goes according to plan. Oh, and we’re going from 3 to 4.

Fun times ahead, I’ll hope you’ll stick around and enjoy it with me.

      Thanks Geoff! Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Mostly online since I live a couple hours away from the campus.

    in for the journey, the ride
    watching what God unfolds
    His story bursting new
    in flesh again
    to His glory

    Glad to see you back, Grayson! That’s a big commitment to write every day but I’m sure you’ll be an even better writer for it. That’s big news about attending seminary soon. Congratulations on that and the addition to your family!

      Yep, I figure the best way to get really good at something is to do it every day. And congrats on going from 4 to 5! Very exciting! Have a great Christmas Loren.
