The Audacity!

Okay, so now I have decided to start a blog.  Part of my brain is thinking, "How arrogant of me!  I sit here and think that my words are worth recording for posterity and releasing to others!"

This morning, though, I read Matthew 5:12 in Eugene Peterson's The Message:  "Let me tell you why you are here.  You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth.  If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness?  You've lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage."

We all have a God story -- you do, I do, everyone does.  If we share these stories in whatever venue we have, we can make God shine a little brighter here on earth -- encouraging fellow believers and maybe helping others make a choice for Christ.

So, in humility I will start sharing my God stories -- how He is working in my life.  My prayer is that it will benefit someone -- even if it is just me.

I am a widowed, homeschooling mom of 4 active boys, ages 13, 10, 6 1/2, and 4 1/2.  Welcome to my roller-coaster, God-infused world!
