Good evening world!

Yes, I am back. I have recently returned from my two-year mission for my church in the south of France. And it was incredible. What can I say, is there a single thing better in the world than being blessed to serve with all of your heart, might, mind and strength, to be solely focused on the well-being of others, and to be completely dedicated to the Lord for two years? No, not a thing.

Approximately one month has passed, I have simply been “readjusting” to “real-life,” which isn’t always the most pleasant of experiences. I haven’t updated this since I brought it back online about two weeks after my return because it was just too much to handle and think of again. Besides, I figured I would wait for the release of WordPress 2.5, which came out today, so I guess I am out of excuses.

I am excited to begin writing again. Like anyone who maintains a blog, I simply enjoy writing. I love quietly expressing myself, I think personal content is what makes our world interesting, and besides, letters are such individual works of art! Furthermore, I have 2,398 photos accumulated which I wouldn’t mind sharing either. I am currently working on processing all of those – not a small task. Everything in it’s time – one lesson I have certainly learned.

So thank you for reading, thank you for the interaction. I am pleased to be back here at my home, podq.com, and am excited for the years to come! May God bless and keep you.

Hi Josh,
I just wanted thank you for your wonderful theme. I’m using your theme for a friend who is currently stationed in Afghanistan as a way for her to keep in touch with family. It is the perfect design. We’re still tweaking the site, but the design is all yours. You didn’t place a credit in the footer code. Can I put you in there with a link?

I just came across your site, I love your theme and am using it on a site I’m currently putting together. The .psd file is, in fact, broken but there is another place to get it right now, http://dev.wp-themes.org/browser/travelogue/trunk/travelogue.psd

By the way, given that you served a two year mission for your church I’m guessing you were an LDS Elder. Welcome home Elder, I served in Northern Portugal nearly 10 years ago.

Welcome home,

Kris Beldin

If you need a beta tester for the new travelogue theme, I’m happy to help out.
