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

Yay! The first meme of the new year! Thanks Cat!

1) What is the cause that you believe is the most worthy of all those available? I swear, if there were an "Eliminate stupidity from the general human population" ribbon, I'd wear it proudly. Why oh why Lord, did You see fit to give this earth so many morons?
2) What problem is the most common among people your age? See above answer. Falling Off Chair Laughing
3) Who do you feel is the most underappreciated actor (male or female) in the history of Hollywood? I have no idea. Perhaps Hollywood gets too much appreciation as it is. After all, look how much $$$ those guys and gals make compared to our everyday heroes. Now that's under appreciation.
4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.
Ok I admit that I need new glasses. I saw this and thought, "Hmmm. Reminds me of the rocks near the Coppermine Brook by our place." Alas, according to the tag when you save it, it's dishes. Doh. Time to call my opto...bah, the eye doc.

Til next squeak,

5 Squeaks from the Maze:

Holy cats! The picture is from MY blog and I thought it was stones too. OMG--Please send money to us poor stupid people! ;-)

Happy New Year.
