I spent the day cleaning. Well I tried to spend my day cleaning, but as I was dusting off the bookshelf in our room I came across all the blogs I wrote from 2009, which I had printed and bound into a book. I sat on the floor and read through our year, with all the ups and downs, random rants, posts of encouragement, and the unfolding of my faith. I was filled with so many memories and I was so encouraged. This blog is for me; for me to keep a journal of my life and for me to grow as a believer, a wife, and a mom. But, this blog is also for you, whoever "you" may be out there; for you to be encouraged by our life and what God is doing in it, around it, and with it. I want all I do and all I stand for to be for God's glory, this blog included.
I pray that this blog will be used as a vessel for the Lord. Even if there is no one who reads it but my family and friends -- it is my desire that Christ will be seen through my writing. So, when you read a blog post from here on out, know that it is intentional, even if it may seem random. I am intentionally sharing my life with you so you that you may be encouraged, loved, and see the love of Jesus through me.
Until next time, dear friends! You are loved!
