Writing the Journey


I've been blogging now for almost 6 years.  When I started out, I felt like after a year or two, I would have said all there was to say.  Yet here I am, feeling like I have just scratched the surface.

In the beginning, my main objective was to leave a record of family life for those who might be interested.  So many of my people have passed away without me really getting a handle on the stories they had to tell.  I didn't want that to happen anymore.

My future grandchildren may think there is just too much of my writings to ever read all my thoughts.  I hope not for I feel my writing is my legacy.

Over time, another purpose for my blogging has emerged. I'm an encourager and writing is my means to do it.  I love writing about God and His word.  That is a given.  But I also like sharing with you the beauties in nature that I find, the nuggets of wisdom I come across in my reading, and hey!  I like passing along a new recipe or home organization tip I have tried that just might change your life.

Writing is all about sharing my journey through life. If you'd like to come along, you are always welcome!
