This really IS happening!  Welcome to my page and my first blog!  I have wanted to start a blog for a very long time but was not sure what I would say, what I wanted to say, what would be my focus.  I mean, everybody has to have a singular focus to do this and pull it off, right?  Um….maybe?  So here I am, putting myself out there for the whole world to see.  Wish me the best of luck and if I can inspire and make a difference to just one person, all of this will be worth it.

I have a good friend who is a true soldier of God.  She is one of the few people I have met personally in my life who truly is willing to run naked through the streets (figuratively!) praising Jesus’ name for the whole world to see.  I met her in 2009 and my walk with Christ from that point forward, while not always perfect or perfectly on track, took on a whole new meaning to me.  The sun was never more bright, the skies never more blue, and the song of the birds never more beautiful.  I believe that every place we have been in our lives, as much as we think we have planned each of our steps, was just a moment in time taking us to the next place, and the next, and the next.  Everywhere I have been in my life has been a new puzzle piece gathered along the way, another stepping stone put in place, moving me toward God’s ultimate purpose for me.  Every person whose path has crossed with mine was sent by God as either someone to teach me a life lesson or someone to move me further along in my journey.  I can only hope that I have been a blessing to others along the way more than I was a lesson!

Proverbs 16:9 – A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.

Psalm 56:3 – Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.
