As you know, I’ve not been feeling well the past several days, but I am feeling better now. Thanks so much for your prayers.
But even though my health is better, my energy level just isn’t where it should be. I’m am feeling the need to take a break from producing the show.
I’ve produced almost exactly 300 episodes since the last time I took a break. That’s about 60 weeks, with only a day or two’s break for an occasional cold or some such thing. Last summer I took a couple of days to hike in the Sierra, but even then I produced shows in advance so that you wouldn’t be left without fresh episodes.
So, I must admit that my energy level is somewhat depleted and in need of refreshing.
So here is my plan. The Lovely Lady LeeAnn has earned a fairly prestigious award from her employer, and will be taking a trip back to the home office in Charlotte, NC in April to receive it at a big event.
In over 26 years of marriage, we have never taken a long, traveling vacation together. We have been to Hawai’i a couple times, but never anything like what we plan to do in April. We’ll go to Charlotte, after which we will go to a little town she spent part of her childhood in there in NC, then drive up to Washington DC, which she has never seen (and I think every American citizen should go there at least once) and then drive up to NYC.
When I was a boy, my family and I lived in NJ, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan, so I’ve been in NYC many times. But the lovely Lady LeeAnn has never been and has always wanted to go.
So my plan is this.
As I said, I need a break. So I am putting the creation of new episodes on hiatus until the first Monday in May, which is May 2nd.
But I take very seriously my commitment to you that “This is the podcast that helps you achieve consistency in reading the Bible.”
So I am going to be reposting previously published episodes. Reading and listening to the Bible every day is a good habit to be in, and I don’t want to be the reason you fall out of the habit.
I hope that’s ok with you, and that you understand my need for some regenerative time. When I come back on May 2nd, I should be good to go for another long stretch, God willing.
