If it seems like I am posting more stuff about God and Jesus, it is probably true. I just cannot seem to help it. Oh sure, I am still posting about my own foibles and follies, but there is more to me than just the silly or stupid stuff I post.

Yes, I know. I post stupid stuff on the internet. I tend to clutter it up a bit with my musings. But that is okay. There is plenty of space out there on the good ole interweb. And I know that I am not the only one putting stupid stuff out there. You do not need to go far to see that.

But like most people, I have more depth than the couple dimensions you might see on the internet. I have a heart and soul too. And that heart and soul yearn for the same thing every heart and soul years for. God.

I have heard it said in many ways, but we all have a God-sized hole in our hearts. We might try to fill it with different things, but nothing ever works. Wine, women, and song. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll. New age mysticism. Or even creating God in our own image instead of understanding that we are created in His. None of these things work. Even though they might seem to do so in the short term.

I have talked about God in various posts since I started this silly blog. A little here and a little there. It might even have been like tithing. You know, ten percent. I am not sure, but I know I have talked about faith and Jesus and lots of other things along those lines. I think I am just doing it more now.

Oh do not worry, I will post lots more silly and stupid stuff. It is my stock in trade. And my few readers (both real and imaginary) can rest assured that I will say something dumb that they can vilify me with. (Like ending sentences with a preposition. But hey, English is not Latin.) But as I get older, as I develop my relationship with the Creator, I want to talk about Him more.

Which just makes sense. We talk about what we are passionate about. And the older I get, the closer I get to Jesus, the more I want to talk about that relationship. Besides, I watched a part of Teller’s thought about getting a Bible from a fan. And to use his thought, how much must I hate people if I have the words of truth and salvation and do share them with people. How much must I dislike my readers if I do not give them some preaching every once in a while.

So that is why it might seem that I am talking about God more. I am. Because when it comes right down to it, I want people to know that God loves you and so do I.
