Well here it is. My first blog. I can’t even believe I’ve actually started a blog when just a year ago I was reaching out to my friend Jolene asking exactly what a blog was! I mean, I’m not COMPLETELY clueless. I knew it was a place where people wrote about certain things and people read it. That’s it! Did I ever think I would be a blogger?? Ummm no. So much no that I had actually written blog writer instead of blogger originally in that sentence. Thankfully, after a lot of laughs, Jolene told me to change it to blogger. I am not a writer at heart. I’m not someone who shares my life and struggles with others. In the past I have always been the person that sits in the back of the room, stays quiet, while dipping down in my seat when people are getting called on. I don’t like attention. I don’t like people looking at me, judging me or talking about me. But here I am preparing to share my life, my struggles, my oh crap moments with people who I don’t even know. Am I still the person that wants to hide in the background? Yes. But that is not what God has called me to do. He has called me to live in his light! And if I’m living in his light I can no longer live in darkness, scared and hiding. I have to open my life up to him and to you! If I can share some light on just one persons darkness, then I have succeeded. I may be judged, laughed at or talked about but that’s okay. I’m not doing this for you or myself even. I’m doing it for the Glory of God. He has called me to share my life, my experiences, my struggles with others in hopes of bringing you closer to him.
