Still running for the cheese (or why this blog still exists)

As my regular readers can tell, this has been a dry year for me. Just look at the number of posts this year vs. 2008! Awhile back, I had considered either shutting down the Maze, or starting a new blog that would more accurately reflect where I am in life now. Truth be told, sometimes I come here, look around, and feel distinctly hypocrytical about the things I want to write. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever be in that kind of place.
As the time in between posts has grown longer, I came to realize something. Without the past years' material, where I am now makes very little sense. What good is the destination without the journey? As Christians, so much of the best stuff that happens to us is in the times God is molding us to His image. To throw away the evidence of that process would somehow cheapen the result, I think.
So, here we are, dear friends. I think my little mousie may just have rounded a corner finally. Some things will change around here to reflect the changes in my heart. And you know what? That's ok. As much as I typically rage against anything changed in my life, I'm learning to accept the God-given ones. My prayer is that some of you may be encouraged by what you read here. Hey, you may even be challenged. And of course, if you know me, then you know you always stand a good chance of being offended too. Not intentionally, to be sure! Just know that what you find as you wander this Maze with me may surprise you as much as it does me.

All that to say this:

Monday Meme

It's another Monday, and it's time to meme! As always, thanks goes to Cat for keeping the masses entertained.

1) What is the most disgusting thing you've ever had in your mouth? When MonkeyMan was a baby, he was on ProSoBee formula. Once, he spit up right into my mouth. Yeah. That.
2) What is the boldest thing you've ever done? Well, I just put a bright violet stripe in my hair. Does that count?
3) If you could pick one person you know well to be more religious (or spiritual), who would it be? Mr. P. He really needs it right now because I'm *thisclose* to sending him to see Jesus early. If ya know what I mean. Screamer
4) What is [your] partner's best feature? {edited} ~pffftt~ Um, his backside running away from me? Ignoring You
5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.
I dunno, this just makes me think of Mall of America for some reason. Indoor amusement park I guess.
Til next squeak,

It is Mall of America: spot on!

Hang in there. ;-)

Cat, you should see the stripe. It faded out a bit to some seriously smurfin' blue. Rock on! I really should pop up this dorky pic of me...
