This Journey

Thoughts, rants, prayers, sermons I'll never give and other stuff gathered as I make my way through this life.

8 years ago – a blogiversary tale

Eight years ago today I started this blog; The Journey.

Eight years ago; after the 2004 election results.

Eight years ago; as I began my second year of graduate school.

Eight years ago; when I separated from X but he was still living here.

I was distraught. Not because of the turnout of the election. Well, not just because of the turnout of the election. That was really just the last straw.

Sometimes the light’s all shinin on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip its been.

Grateful Dead – “Truckin'”


Author: Not Fainthearted

A paradox wrapped in an enigma playing the accordion. I'm a sinner-saint, child of God working at the cross-roads of church and world. A Deaconess called to connect people living near the center with people on the edge and to help your life sing (literally and figuratively) while doing it. People don't always get the deaconess part. Could be the swearing, the corporate job, or the wine.
