I do love to blog....

When I know the Lord is speaking to me I really do try to listen. Sometimes He has to use large flashing neon signs, but this time through several different circumstances and people, He has quietly nudged me back to this blog. It's been almost a year. Why? I do LOVE to blog. Why do I abandon it for so long? The reason I believe is guilt. Guilt for sitting in front of a computer screen for hours talking about myself. Sounds kind of silly and wasteful. But you know what? As a stay-at-home mom, I often crave someone (over the age of 4) to share my thoughts and feelings with. My husband (and best friend) owns his own business and works long hours so by the time he gets home and settled neither of us have the energy to talk about anything meaningful. I sometimes write in a journal but it's not the same. I guess in blogging, even if only one person reads what you have written, you feel like you matter. That someone has heard you, and maybe even been encouraged by your struggles or accomplishments. That's what drives me. I am that girl who is usually too intimidated to speak in a crowd of people, so I just listen. When I do talk, I feel like what comes out of my mouth is not at all what I intend most of the time. I want people to know what I think and believe, even if they don't agree. I know it is hard to "know" someone from reading their blog, but my hope is that this will give this introverted woman a chance to share with you what makes up "me." I will try not to bore you to tears....lol.

So, this is sort of a reintroduction of my blog, and I've got so much to share! I want this to be a place for me to brag on my kids, my husband and ESPECIALLY my God! He is so good. I want this to be a place where I can post pictures of my latest project, or share my favorite recipes, or cute things my kids say, and *hopefully* encourage someone somewhere with what the Lord has so graciously shown me on any given day. So, I am excited!! And maybe it won't be another year before I post again.....
