Welcome to my little corner of suburbia. Thank you for stopping by! Today is the beginning of a new journey for me. Blogging! Please join me as we talk about kids, faith in God, and the crazy things that happen in our lives. I also look forward to reviewing great books and talking about my love of writing.
When I first felt God prompting me to blog, “I thought surly not me, God!” I mean, aren’t there enough bloggers? I resisted for a while and tried hard to fight it, but He is very persistent and now months later here I sit typing this post to you. Why do we try to argue with God and convince Him that we shouldn’t do what He says we should do? When honestly, we know in the end, we are going to do exactly what He has told us to do in the first place. God is so patient with me. I continually test His patience as a child, a parent, and as a wife. I know part of the reason I resisted blogging was out of fear. What if I fail? What if I don’t have anything to write about? The more I pondered on these possibilities the more the fear of failing paralyzed me. How many areas of our lives do we allow fear to rule our hearts and guide our actions? While reading Matthew 8:26, “He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith ?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm.” I was deeply convicted when I read of how Jesus calmed the sea. If he can control the sea, then can’t he also handle my blog?
It is very exciting to have this chance to share my passion for life with you! Thanks for joining me on this new journey.
