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 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 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.
