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.
