I'm writing this post on November 4th, at the end of four weeks of travel in Europe and in the US for Dave and I.
I'm POSTING it on October 26th, because that's the last time that I had time to blog! I'll eventually go back and catch up on those missing days of blogging, but wanted to explain a bit about why I don't get to blog daily while we're on the road.
When I'm traveling, I especially love blogging because each day is so full of goodness that I might forget it I didn't write about it. And I don't want to do that! But the nature of travel makes that difficult since our days often start very early and end late as we're meeting with people or en route to the next place.
In the past, I used to do better at keeping up with my blog when we traveled. I'd stay up for an extra hour to do it at the end of a day. But for the past three years, my computer time while traveling has gone first to our Josiah Venture Prayer Room.
Every day, whether traveling or not, I work in the Prayer Room, editing new requests being added by our JV staff, as well as their answers to prayer, and anything that's posted on the Reflection Wall.
I'm also troubleshooting problems each day, and communicating with our web design team who work in Slovakia when I can't figure it out myself. In addition to that, any time someone writes a note on the reflection wall that is specific to a person, I email that note to the designated recipient.
All of this can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours, or more, a day! Thus all my spare time goes to this while on the road, and I have to look for other blocks of time to blog.
I don't like to get behind! But it's the nature of travel and work along the way.
This afternoon I'm at Chicago O'Hare waiting for our flight across the ocean...and remember, this is November 4th, not October 26th, even though it says that on the date of this post! 😂
I'm hopeful that I'll get a few blog posts done before we fly, but if not, I'll do it after I get home to our beloved Czech Republic!
