I'm not home, but I scheduled this post because today is my one year blogging anniversary!! I just had to write a little somethin' somethin'! I set out a year ago, 281 posts ago...completely clueless:) I didn't know a thing about how to blog. I wasn't sure what I was going to talk about or if anyone would be able to find me to even read it. But for some reason, day after day it came...the words came, the inspiration came and finally the readers came. I can only attribute it to God. He has filled my heart with so much to share and through that whole process He has given me a lot of new friends. I can honestly say that blogging has changed my life:)
There are times though that I question why I do this. We all know it's really time consuming, but more than that sometimes blogging makes me feel "less than"... I compare myself to other bloggers and feel intimidated. They seem to have it all together with their gorgeous homes, wonderful recipes, amazing crafting ability, pictures etc... This is a little embarrassing to admit, but the green eyed monster comes out and I have to deal with those envious thoughts. I have to remind myself that it's not a competition! I am who I am and that is exactly who God made me to be. Please tell me you've experienced this!
With this New Year approaching my goals are to just listen to what God is trying to tell me, look for opportunities to share my life and art with the world, and to just be! He put these desires in my heart; to blog, to paint, to share...so I give it over. Please know you have all encouraged me so much this past year!! Your comments and letters have always come at the perfect time. They bless my heart day after day and fill me with the inspiration to continue. I love ya...I really do!
Have a blessed day.
Oh and stay tuned...
when I get back I'll have some kind of giveaway to celebrate proper!!
