      I Need A Do Over

      Mulligan – noun – (in informal golf) an extra stroke allowed after a poor shot, not counted on the scorecard.  (Google Dictionary)

      Have you ever wanted to start over?

      Have you ever made a mistake and wanted to erase that mistake?

      Have you ever gotten out of the habit of doing something good and wanted to get back on the right track?

      I feel this way about blogging.  I’ve been writing here on my blog for over eleven years, and I have fallen out of my blogging grove over the past several months.

      Yesterday, my wife told me she missed my blog posts, and I’ve had a few people check in with me to make sure I was okay after they hadn’t heard from me for a while.  (Thanks for checking in on me!)

      I don’t want to erase everything I’ve written in the past, but I sometimes wish I could start over with the same energy and time commitment to writing.  Some of this is in my control, but I also recognize that many things have changed for me over the past eleven years – especially over the past two years since I took on more responsibility at work.

      And so I come back to my blog and to you, my readers, asking for a “Do Over.”

      I want to get back on the right track, and I’m hoping you’ll join me on the journey.

      See you tomorrow!

      Do you need a Do Over?

      Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!  2 Corinthians 5:17
