The Mash Unit - the genesis

Frances Bacon wrote, "Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man."  I remember Billy Prescott, my discipler with Campus Crusade for Christ at the University of Florida, making our bible study group go and search for that quote on the side of one of the buildings on campus.  It is a quote that has stuck in my head since because of the truth that it conveys.  It is part of the reason for this blog.  Not that I will be anywhere close to being exact on any subject, but, hopefully, I will have a better grasp on what I think by being able to write about it.

What shall I write about?  Life in general. Sports. Books. Church. Work. Music. Family. My relationship with God.  Hopefully, you will find something that might be interesting.  And, I would love to hear your comments.

Now, why the Mash Unit?  Well, it came about one day at work when practically everyone in the building was sick or had a family member that was sick. And, as I was sending out email updates, I would make reference to the Mash Unit from the TV series M*A*S*H.

So, I thought to myself, that would make a great name for a blog if I ever did one.  Of course, I'm sure that my friends will say that I will take on the role of Radar because of my communication skills.  Ha!  Or, maybe because it is the TV star that I look like the most barring George from Seinfeld.

Anyway, that's enough fodder for my friends; back to The Mash Unit.  There are days that I feel like I am the patient - needing as much help as I can get.  And, there are days that I feel like the doctor - able to use what I have to help others.  Hopefully, God will use this forum in both scenarios.

Well, it's late, and I was bound and determined to get the first entry done.  So, I am going to leave it as it is.  Nowhere close to what I want it to be, but done. 

Good night, and remember God loves ya!
