Why blog?

"Be who you are because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind" - Dr. Suess

I have felt a stirring in my soul lately that God wants me to create a blog. I admit that I have been resistant to it. Will anyone care what I have to say? Do I really want to step out of my comfort zone and share my heart? But then I think of all the lessons God has been teaching me and wonder...what if what I'm learning is not only for my growth, but could be used to benefit others as well?

My hope is that through this blog you will get to know me, and be inspired and encouraged in your own journey. Even if no one reads these words, I am at peace knowing that I am being obedient to the One who matters most.

And I'll stride freely through wide open spaces as I look for your truth and your wisdom; Then I'll tell the world what I find, speak out boldly in public, unembarrassed. - Psalm 119:45-46 (Msg)

LOVE the quote!!!! This is EXACTLY why I never did a blog before I did! A few friends had encouraged that I should but I didn't want to take the time nor did I think I had anything interesting to say or did I really feel comfortable putting myself out there like that. But I LOVE the quote (did I mention that already?!)!!!!! It's so true!!!!! Can't wait to get to know you better through your blog! I miss you! Love you!
