My daughter has been in Florida with her Dad for almost a week, so I’ve had plenty of time to ponder. This can be good and not so good. This time is was actually very good for me.
A while ago, I started looking at my why in every area of my life. The Blog why was easy. I started this Blog at the prompting of my daughter. She knew I love to write and felt my story would encourage others. I have been through a lot, but God has turned it all into beauty. Even when I couldn’t see it, it was right there waiting for me to stop and notice.
This is one thing I have started doing for myself. Stopping.
Do you stop or pause during the day and look at your life?
The Blog was born from a love of writing. It tells the story of life with my daughter for the past three years. We have been on a great adventure living life on our own with God to lead us.
The Blog is a legacy I will leave to my daughter. She can come here, as long as the Internet exists, and read about our great adventure. God provided and cared for us every step of the way.
Having walked through many a fire, my hope is to encourage everyone who reads it there is a beautiful life available to all.
I love light and things that smell good. When I got home today, I plugged in this little scent warmer and snapped this pic. The light is so bright, it’s difficult to read, but says, “Home Sweet Home.” Above it is a sign that I pause and read quite often. The last line of the sign says, “This is your life…make it beautiful.” That is what I strive to do for myself and others.
Why do I Blog? To share my life with others. You need some beauty? Come here and sit a while. Has it always been this way? No…but it’s getting more and more beautiful everyday.
