When I close my eyes and sing praises to the Lord God my Heavenly Father, I imagine my voice is like an angel – ephemeral and glorious – and not the out of tune croaking guttural sound that comes out.
Greetings and Welcome to my Blog. I started this blog to let my thoughts flow into words. It is phenomenological in nature as I rant about my personal journey with Christ, as I reflect and rave about life in general.
Sometimes poetic, at other times soulful, I find it easier to let my thoughts flow free form – it is a creative outlet for me 🙂
Who am I?
Well, I am a wife, mom, artist/writer, and educator. I have studied well into my late 30s, with a B.A in Cultural Anthropology, a B.F.A. in Studio and Art Education, and a M.F.A in Art Education. It sounds impressive, but really it’s not. The more I think I know – I really know nothing!
I think too much. I read too much.
I started this blog as my daily journal – praise, poems and prayer for my Savior Jesus…sometimes I am so overwhelmed by His presence in my life I want to shout and share the love of Him with others, but we live in such a secular world that telling others “I love Jesus” is not only politically incorrect, but many of those around me think I am a “Jesus freak”, or nut case. I am not, I am just inspired and filled with God in me. His presence in my life, has given me hope in our humanity.
I have a hard enough time sharing Him with my own family, that my exuberance for Christ is shrugged off by my own kids and husband as emotionalism. All I can do is lead by example, and know that I can not change them, I can only change myself with God’s help. I see daily the hands of God in my family life, as He awakens within them a light. I see this light growing within them in the little things they do, from humming or singing a tune under their breathe – a song of praise from Sunday worship, or their sense of happy anticipation for Friday night Youth group at our local church.
Praise be to God!
