Can it be that I got this blog to work? It’s not fancy, but it’s a place to write and process things. I never knew it before Facebook, but writing is theraputic for me. I love Facebook. Writing even small things helps me process through the daily thoughts and struggles. I am a deep, analytical thinker so while I’m not a big talker, I like to express things through writing. My sister, Suzi suggested I start a blog so I’ll give it a try and then I don’t have to post as much on Facebook. (: I hope to be an encouragement to all who read here and be real about this journey of faith we are on. I don’t think it helps to pretend our lives are all put together perfectly when in reality God brings into all of our lives as His children various tests and trials as a help to mold and strengthen our faith.

I’ve always been fond of older, wiser, even gray-headed Christians who have been down much of this life’s journey and are still faithful to God. It’s my passion, though I fail daily, to grow into a person of genuine faith. Tomorrow or in an hour from now, when I fail again, by lack of patience with my children or struggle with my attitude, it’s there that I have the opportunity to look to Jesus as the only one who can help me overcome my struggles and look up. It’s a daily, moment by moment relationship. Growing up, I don’t think I fully grasped what a relationship with God meant. When God brought me to the end of myself, mostly as a mom, and at times as a wife, that is when I learned to depend on Him. I remember thinking about Paul, was it, who said he desired God more than his necessary food? Earlier in my years of motherhood, I thought how can that be? God taught me. Now I understand. Just like at salvation, I was helpless and He saved me.  Daily I need to put my trust in Him to fill me and give me the strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.
