A year ago this month someone, who I deeply admire, proposed the idea of me starting a blog. I quickly brushed off the idea. It was just hard to imagine that I could offer anything by simply sharing my thoughts and experiences. Nevertheless, the idea was planted, and I began to pray about it. I kept thinking this project would be completely useless and irrelevant if it wasn’t helpful to anyone. My prayers were fueled with a desire for the Lord’s confirmation. I can’t tell you that some supernatural event occurred. Instead a scripture replayed in my mind, like a gentle voice. Colossians 3:17 says, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
Everything that we do we want to be fruitful. But sometimes we have to simply get started. With my prayers I felt a prompting from the Lord, “Do it for Me, I will bless it.” So this blog spot isn’t just a place to share opinions, pictures, or recipes. No, this is my offering. This is a place where I give glory to my God for how great He is.
All of the trials, the lessons, the gifts and blessings are not my own. They are opportunities to glorify the Lord. That is the purpose for each post. And that is my vision for this project. I desire to share these life experiences with as many as will read them. I want to tell the world the great work the Lord does in my life each and every day, and the work He desires to do in each and every individual.

Philippians 2:1-2, “Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.”
My prayers are for that encouragement, comfort, tenderness, compassion and unity to be found at the beginning, the end and throughout all of our days. We are the vessels.
