I originally started this blog to record the adventures of our family’s cross country road trip in 2010. Now, here I am still blogging away.
When I write, I learn…about myself, about life, about people, about God. I love it when I am surprised by the words that appear on the paper, or in this case, on the screen. When I write, I feel close to God; He reveals himself to me. It is a gift to be able to experience Him this way. When I write, I have fun – most of the time.
Most of my writing is scribbled in journals and notebooks and that is just fine with me. But in recent years I have had a strange sort of a burning to write and share it with others. Does that sound ridiculous? Or even self-indulgent? It does to me. Who would really want to hear what I have to say? The world is drowning in reading material. Why should I add to it? I can’t help but think that I will be just another indistinguishable voice in the daily clamor of 21st century life.
But then, as I was having this debate with myself, I read somewhere that if I want to write I should write, whether anyone reads it or not. If I have a need to write, I should write. Period. And so here I am. Regardless if anyone ever reads it – though it is a lot more fun for me when someone does!
If you want to know more about me, you can find it in the pages of my blog.
I hope you enjoy what you find here. Feel free to post a comment and share your thoughts.
