Object in Motion

I haven't blogged in quite some time, but I plan on catching up. I need a place to vent...I am boiling over due to the current state of affairs. The problem has been I have trouble writing unless it is War and Peace, thoroughly researched and thought out. During several home improvement projects, I have had plenty of time alone with my thoughts. Good, bad, indifferent I need a place to share them and I'm choosing this blog. I am pledging to keep my post short and posted before they are perfect. To spend 30 minutes every other day as opposed to hours once a quarter...only not to post the entry because I don't think it is perfect.

So how did I arrive at the blog address, objectinmotion? No, I'm not a physics expert, but I do enjoy studying it. NASA eloquently explains it at http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/objmotion.html. You'll often heard it put as an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an external force. I think that Newton's laws of motion apply to life, not just mass. What do I mean by that?

In my own life, I see these laws so applicable. When I am at rest, I tend to stay at rest...whether it is home projects, blogging, spiritually, at work, and/or as a father. When I am in motion, I tend to stay in motion. I want to be an object in motion. I want to make a difference...I believe I have been given life to do just that stay in motion and make a difference. This blog is now in motion. I hope it encourages thought and makes others better off for reading it, but if not I am using to make me better...in motion to think through issues, in motion to look at the world through different eyes, in motion to let things go that I can't change, in motion to become who God wants me to be...This object is in motion.
