Figuring it out

I started this blog many months ago, high on excitement at a new beginning. But I was not ready for WordPress. It was, and still is, overwhelming. I wasn’t looking to learn html or formatting. And learning curves? Yeah. Not a fan of them. I’ve stopped and started so many posts, it’s not funny. I had a dozen drafts, but deleted them all. This indecisiveness is maddening.

I have, at least, however, come to some clarity on one thing, and that’s this: defining the purpose of this blog. I’ve decided it’s simply going to, like my grief blog, be a window into this life of mine. Ha! Sounds so vain, doesn’t it? What I mean is that I intend to write and post with sincerity and transparency. My life verse is Galatians 2:20.

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Because of that, everything I do and say, all that I write, stems from that belief. I just want to honor God by the things I write. I want to glorify Him. Grief is a part of my life, but my life is not all grief, and that is why I wanted a “new” blog. This new blog is yet another window from which to look out from.

For now, I have no idea how often I’ll post, as the responsibilities of homeschooling, wife-ing, and motherhood are first on the priority list, followed by my role as editor of our local Compassionate Friends newsletter. As if those didn’t keep me busy enough, I’m also working on several children’s picture book manuscripts. So, yeah, blogging frequency? Who knows. There’s always the tension between expectation and reality, right? Just keeping it real.

Thanks for reading.
