First and foremost this is about my Heavenly Father, that’s the plan. To give Him the glory and honor and the place He deserves in my life. He is everything to me and always will be. My walk is daily. Trusting Him is all of lifes trials, small or large. None are too small to matter to Him and none are too large to not lay down to His care. That’s the goal. To do the laying down daily.
I am woman. This will be about being Created in His image. Yes. We were created in His image too. Not with the same role but in His image no less.
I am a wife. Created to be a Helpmeet. This will be about this most important role, yes, even the role I was created for. An heir together in the grace of life with the one I love. The one I was made for. To complete and compliment him as God created him. Not as I want him to be.
I am a mother. Created to bring up other image bearers. Ones who will carry the light of His love into this dark land. Bearing children, as I am learning, is a life long process. One never stops bearing this burden . The phases are different but the path never ends.
I am a friend. I love many and want to share and learn from you about how to be a better friend.
In all these things I am a follower of Jesus Christ. For without Him I would be nothing.
I am new to blogging. I may not bring anything “new” to the table of the blogging world and I don’t intend on making myself something that I am not in an endeavor to do so. I know that there is nothing new under the sun. I am sure that my opinions and way of living and thinking have not taken the world by surprise. In any case, I would like to share my life with anyone who might be interested. I have been deeply blessed by many in the blogging community and find that it seems fitting to join in a little more rather than living on the outskirts of this blogging world.
As for what I “do”. I love my husband by homemaking my house. I work to create and atmosphere of peace, which falters more than I’d like it too. I love to homeschool our four children. I love to cook, sew, crochet and knit. I love to garden. I love to learn and share. Sometimes these loves can take on a life of there own… I always want to get the loves… the ones that are pleasures rather than “must’s” and “need to’s” back into reality and give them their rightful place.
So ready or not, here I come! Have fun with me and learn to laugh as I am. Learn to trust Him in everything with me. To give Him His place as Lord and Savior and Lover of our souls daily in everything 🙂
