I am blogging? What?!?

Let me start out by saying, I have no idea what I am doing!  I literally had to go to google to figure out how to even post on this thing!  I am very hesitantly stepping into some deeper water here.  I have been so surprised and encouraged by the responses I’ve been getting on Facebook about my statuses.  So many of you have encouraged  me to start a blog.  Some of you out of love and others just  want to stop seeing all the words I post on Facebook. ha!   Either way, I am starting to feel that this is where I belong.  Sitting with my cup of coffee talking to each of you over the “table” of this post.  (yes,  I am a confessed coffee addict)  Nothing complicated, or particularly insightful, I just love people, observing them and writing about what I see.   I enjoy sharing words (lots of words)  about my every day life. I’m simple and probably not always grammatically correct and I tend to love run on sentences.  But, nothing brings me more happiness than putting on paper (or a computer screen)  what I’m learning and having someone else relate and tell me so.  I see life in stories, I feel like I have a constant narrative going in my head.  I am always looking for the lesson to be learned by the simple happenings around me.  I am not a “writer” and certainly not  an author or anything, really.   I just love making pictures in my mind out of words.  So, hang on and hold on as we get to know each other, I am a mess, as you will soon see.  But, I love Jesus  deeply and I pray everyday to be more like him.  Not sure what this is all gonna look like, I guess we’ll discover it together.  Can’t think of anyone else I’d rather make this journey with.

      Thank you, Bettie, I am scared to death. Not sure why, but I know the Lord is in this and I am going to keep walking forward even though it is on shaky legs.

    I have enjoyed reading your posts on Facebook, so I know I’ll enjoy reading your blog. 🙂 More than once I have read your posts to Mama. I told her that you really have a way with words. I bought Coach Dobson’s book and gave to Ryan as a gift. When you write your book I buy it as a gift to myself. 🙂 God Bless You!

      Mary, you are so sweet! I have been overwhelmed and surprised at the responses to my statuses on Facebook, deeply humbled. The Lord has been good to me and I love to relate that to others and to be able to relate to others while doing it. YOU are a blessing! 🙂
