Bloggy Beginnings

I feel that I should start with a disclaimer, I am not a writer.  I "missed the boat" on so many writing assignments in High School and College that I started rejoicing if I could at least spell my name correctly!  I was not an English major. My grammar and spelling will be wrong on many occasions and I do not have a large vocabulary. Somedays I will be critical of what I type and proceed with a type, delete, type, delete, copy, paste, reword approach at sharing life.  Other days, I will just let it go and hope someone in the world can understand the jumbled thoughts that fly out of my brain.

So given the previous information, why am I starting a blog?  And the answer is, that this is something I have felt brewing for a while now. And ultimately, I "write" blogs in my head all the time, so I took that as a sign to go for it.  The fears of rejection, criticism, being boring, and doubts have been pushed back.  They haven't been removed, but they are being eclipsed by the desire to do, for now. And in the interest of full disclosure, I'm not exactly sure where I even want this blog to go.  I read so many blogs myself about life journeyed in a foreign country, recipe and meal planning, being a Godly wife, being a Godly mother, being a Godly woman, and even health and beauty tips that I question whether I even have anything at all relevant or interesting to share.

But the reason I read the various blogs is because of the information and encouragement they provide.  So I may share a recipe or a "how to" every so often, but ultimately I want to encourage you.  I, myself, am still a work in progress, as this blog is, but what I do know is that I am a daughter of the King, and my sins are covered by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  He is my Savior AND my Lord.  And because of that my life is covered, by God, by grace, by the blood of Jesus and by a lot of prayer.

And hopefully, in covering my life events with you here, you will gain encouragement in the happenings in your life!
