Welcome to my first post. Wow, what a way to get the party started. Over coffee this morning with my husband of nearly 14 years, I decided I was going to start a blog. So here I am, dog asleep next to me, Texas Longhorns on the TV, muted of course, and on hold with American Airlines, all the while going to WordPress and starting a blog. Nifty, huh?
I chose this grassy, glorious theme because I had a thought. This gorgeous meadow overlooking the ocean is where I would like to be. It is idyllic, it is picturesque, it is serene, but it’s not where I am. It is not even close to where I am. I am home, on the couch, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, it’s evening, still 90 degrees outside, my hair is dirty and I have heartburn. This is reality. This is where I live.
I want to show people in my blog that I am real, that I am a real, live, woman. I am a wife, a Mom, a secretary, and a thousand other things, but sometimes, I actually have something insightful to say. I’ve only been on this road of life for 38 years, but when you were raised in and around ministry, that time is doubled, kind of like dog years, I’m really nearly 80!
Anyway, I hope you stop by to read every once in a while. I hope I can encourage you that you are going to make it, that you’re not alone in your situation, and that God is faithful.
CRITICAL UPDATE! AUGUST 2012
As you can see, after nearly 2 years of blogging, I finally figured out how to change my blog’s appearance. I am digging the new design at the top of my pages… so funky, so 2012… at least that’s what I’m telling myself.
But in the spirit of being the detail-oriented person that I am, I felt I had to address this very first post of mine because it mentions the grassy scene that was my blog cover picture for 2 years. Now the picture is gone and I didn’t want you, my awesome readers and friends, to think I was nuts. The end!
ANOTHER CRITICAL UPDATE! JULY 2014
Time for another change of blog design. Hope you like it!
