Why Blog?

I have always admired those who take time to offer thoughts and advice through blogging. And I have learned so much through their words and have often been encouraged. With three girls, working on the family dairy farm, a passion for youth ministry, I find it difficult to find something just for me. I have had a journal for all of my adult life, and find writing very therapeutic, so why not. I don't know if my words will have an impact on anyone, or teach anyone anything. But I will be satisfied knowing that I am taking some time out for me. This is my great escape.

This year:
I want less sleepless nights,
       less heartache,
               less confusion,
                                         less fear of the unknown.
This year:
I want to read more.
Write more.
Love more.
This year:
I want to run.
                                  ...Well :)
This year:
 I want to grow deeper in my faith,
 and be broken,
                                             challenged by scripture.
This year I want to go in His direction.
This year I want peace.
This year, is like no other year. And it is already filled with so many blessings. My husband, my children, my family. I have a house and food and a vehicle. I have a job I love where I can bring my kids with me and see my husband more (seriously, it's awesome)
This year...really, I have little control over, but there is One who knows exactly what will unfold, and for that I am so thankful.
