God's Goodness

Here I am, writing on a pink, flowery blog that has MY name on it. I thought blogs could only be created by computer wizards. Evidently, I have entered into a new realm of "smartness," as my grandmother would say. New blog equals less time to work on house.
I'm sitting here, looking at my 5 little miracles and thinking of all that God has done for us this year. He has truly been a very "on-time" God! It would take more than a blog entry to describe the goodness that He has bestowed to me and my little, well-er, big family. I love to brag about what God has done and is continually doing in my life. I think God likes it too. The more I give Him the Glory, the more He shows up. Just when I think that He can't do better than the last time, he amazes me with the wave of His hand. Just like that!! So I will start the new year off with a great big "Thank You Lord!" :o)

Beginning my new blog

This is my first post on my first blog! My good friend Dorothy and my cousin Traci have been instrumental in helping me to get it started. In it, I want always to give glory to God and shine a beacon of light to others for Him!
At the insistence of my husband Keith, I decided to begin writing my stories down. I have always been a storyteller. My relatives all said that I told my dreams. Maybe I did, but a good story just cannot stay boxed away in someone's memory! I love to tell stories, my students love to hear stories, my children love to hear stories, so I am writing them down.
I am dedicating this, my new blog, to my husband Keith, my children, my parents, my good friend Dorothy, and my good friend Kim Sawyer, who saw enough in me to give me a chance to hone the craft of writing. Without her, I would never have taken the first step on this journey! Blessings to you in the new year!
