For about a month now I've been considering if I should start blogging again. I asked myself several questions. Would it be good stewardship of my time? What would I write about? Is blogging being selfish as I would mostly be writing about me or my family? Would I risk saying something I shouldn't? Within the last week or two, I started getting answers. As we've moved to a more minimalist homeschool this year, it frees up some time for the things we love. For me, that's writing. Unfortunately, I tend to write way too much, therefore it not being a good use of my time nor anyone who reads what I write. My answer came from Ecclesiastes 5:2b ESV "Therefore let your words be few." I can do that. Considering that I haven't written a blog post since 2011, I have much to write about to get caught up. However if you follow me on Facebook or see me in person, that's not necessary. I hope to write about the here an now, life as God's grace gets us through each day. Additionally, I don't wish to be known as a narcissist. But then I thought, what kind of family member or friend would I be if I didn't share Jesus? After all, everything I say and do, I want to point others to Him. As a daughter of the King and an officer's wife, words I share have potential to do much harm. Keeping that in mind, I hope to pray over each post before I hit "publish." So in the days ahead, I hope to get caught up on blogging grammar and get our page cleared up. There's so many new things to learn! Grab a cup of coffee or tea and come join me in my dining room as we continue this journey together.
