Super Sunday and My Journey

Today I planned to share about the purpose of my blog and My Journey. The last couple of weeks I have been praying about how God wants me to use this medium for him.
I mentioned it briefly on Friday at Kellis Show and Tell which is one of my favorite parts of the week. But Friday was the last Show and Tell that will be posted at this blog.

After much prayer and waiting on God's answers and timing I have created a new blog
called My Home Sanctuary I want to invite you all to visit me during the week as some of my regular posts will be at My Home Sanctuary.

I know you must be asking questions like 'Why start another blog?' (the last couple of weeks I haven't been able to keep up with one blog!) When I started My Journey it was an attempt at kind of getting my life back and being able to do some fun things for myself and be able to use my blog to maybe help someone else.

One of my favorite things is my home and my family and I have learned over the last couple of years how important it is not to let anything including ministry to become more important than your home and family. And it really isn't that I allowed that to totally happen but in many ways I did. I was absorbed and consumed and spent so many hours in ministry that I was so exhausted I didn't have time for anything else.
Including myself, home and family. The thing that has suffered the most is my marriage. Now don't get me wrong we are great and cool with each other I mean my Cowboy is just as busy and absorbed as I am but I see how we neglect each other.

Through reading other great blogs I have met some wonderful people that have helped me learn how to be more organized at this time in my life. I have found ladies that challenge me in my relationship with God. I have met wonderful ladies that have shared their ideas and hearts and have given me new ideas and new ways to share my faith.

With all that said. I am separating my house keeping and home organizing posts from my Journey and faith posts. There may be days that I will post on both blogs. But God has placed it on my heart to use the My Home Sanctuary as a blog to reach non believers. I hope that those of you that are reading this will understand my heart. And understand my method. You see I minister daily to young girls and their families that have no desire to hear anything about God. And while I read other blogs I stumble across others that are great homemakers and fun crafters but the main focus of their blogs aren't about God. It is my pray that My Home Sanctuary will be a safe haven to draw in these ladies and help them get a glimpse of God. My Home Sanctuary will always be God's blog just like My Journey but the main emphasis will be home and family. I don't really know exactly how to explain it so please come over and visit me at both blogs.

I know dear sweet Peggy that this isn't the kind of post that you outlined for your Super Sunday and I hope you forgive me for taking this time to share my heart with everyone. And so as not to totally ignore what Super Sunday is all about here is my Super Sunday submission.

This is my first attempt at making one of these great scripture illustrations. It is pretty elementary and I know I need lots of practise but I wanted to share it with you because this verse means a lot to me as I am sure it means a lot to you.
I wanted to share it today and ask you all to come back tomorrow and visit me and Peggy for Mission Monday. Tomorrow I will be sharing how I ended up where I am and how God has shown me his plans for my life. You see I get it now and I am looking so forward to sharing it with everyone.

Thank you Peggy for your sweet spirit and encouragement. Thanks too for your wonderful idea of Mission Monday and Super Sunday and I look forward to being a part of both.

Blessings's a new day!
It's HIS WAY! Hey...who says this is not SIMPLE! IT'S SUPER! And your graphic was simple & perfect! The point is to share what God lays on your heart...and you certainly are doing just that! I understand!I think Gods been speaking to me and others about blogging. Most of us would like to reach out to others
that do not know Jesus, but we are encircling ourselves with others we love who do know Jesus which defeats the others from joining in.

Let my words be few! Keeping it simple! Have a SUPER SUNDAY! This was more than was SUPER!

Great thoughts Sherry! We love to blog, but the trouble is finding the balance with real life. May the Lord lead you and guide you in your new blog.

Hi Sherry!!

I found you at Peggy's and decided to stop by, and I'm glad that I did!

I understand exactly about having two blogs which is why I, myself, have two. One is for my crafting and everyday stuff--although now I'm doing the Love Dare for my son on this one.

The other is for the glory of God and God alone--

The two blogs sometimes overlap and intertwine, and that is just fine with me. But, sometimes, something is only pertinent to one of them, so then I post there.

So, blessings to you on your new journey, and I'll be back to visit!!

And your Scripture picture is wonderful!! It says exactly what is on your heart!!

I hope you stop by for a visit!

Thanks for stopping by. I understand the need for balance of ones life. Your family is always the ones who need you most. I look forward to getting to know you. I also was impressed with the words of Peggy. I added my link for today to her page in hope of finding more people to pass on todays words Think positive and create positive.With this I have hope that god is working through me to help our world with words.

I love what Peggy said...It's HIS WAY for you..that says it all!

And yes, you may use my picture..a dear friend of mine has a daughter who is schooling in Scotland and she took the photo and sent it to me. She is like my adopted niece and she knows how I love God's creation. I pray it blesses whomever you will share it with!

Blessings to you, Sherry, as you venture in the direction God leads you!

I love you sweetie, I will visit both blogs.

I've been over to your other blog before, not quite sure how I ended up there, but I did.

I'm so glad you are finding outlets and ways to express yourself and reach others, too.

God bless you sweet friend.
