Plans for the Future

Hello and good day to all of you. It has been quite a while since I not only posted anything on here but wrote much at all with this blog in mind. Lately I’ve been taking some time off from blogging. It was an accident at first but it quickly became purposeful. I’ve really just been reading, studying and seeking the Lord. I’ve been learning a lot of awesome stuff from a few books on God’s eternal purpose and the Word. God has just been continuing to reveal Christ in me and in my wife and it’s been awesome.

During this little break from blogging I’ve decided to finally make plans to take this blog off of wordpress.com and move it to my own domain to have my own look and more control of the site. I’m currently designing a new theme for the site using the Genesis Framework, which I use for many of the corporate websites I develop for my day job at A2Z Computer Services. I’m pretty excited about it and I can’t wait to get all of your feedback on the new look when it’s ready to go.

The goal and purpose of the blog will remain the same. That is, I will simply continue sharing what I’ve been learning in the Word and will aim for Christ to be the center in all things. I hope to do more book reviews and start having guest bloggers on the site as well.

The only thing I’m really undecided on is the name of the blog. I love the name “Christ the Center” and it definitely fits the purpose of the blog perfectly but I’m considering changing the name. I don’t know. I suppose we’ll see what happens. I’m too indecisive sometimes.

As of right now I don’t have an exact timeline for when the new site will be up and when I’ll begin blogging again. I’m hoping that it will be sometime this Fall. I’ll keep you updated. Lastly, thank you to everyone who keeps up with my blog, gets in on the conversation and passes the posts around online. I hope that you see a glimpse of Christ on this site and nothing less.

Update 9/20/11

I have decided to continue blogging during this transition.

Aidan’s Monsters

I don’t usually do blog posts like this but I couldn’t help myself today.

This afternoon a friend of mine posted a link to an online store that was setup on Etsy in order to sell a 5 year old’s monster drawings. Aidan is 5 years old and has leukemia, he’s selling prints of his artwork to help pay for his chemotherapy. I got super bummed and excited all at the same time. It’s so sad to see a 5 year old with this disease like leukemia, but so refreshing to see all that he is doing and the joy he still has. Aidan’s aunt has a blog for Aidan where she shares his progress with everyone.
