I was asked that that the other day. It’s a good question.
It got me thinking.
So I decided, after digging out a blank journal I was given years ago, that I am going to copy down the entire contents of this blog there.
I realize now, I blog because I am afraid that if I don’t I will someday look back on our life as this great big fuzzy blur…And I don’t ever want to lose the sweetness of these days. I don’t want the simple, ordinary, day-to-day joys to fade over time.
So life becomes a treasure hunt.
A challenge to see things from God’s perspective. And to never stop thanking Him for the glimpses of joy of truth and of beauty He sends every day. To recognize, when David’s smiles at me, numberless times in a day…it’s God wispering, " I love you." To know that the delight that sparkles in the eyes of my tiny daughter, is nothing less than the joy of the Lord. To watch every evening, the sunset splendour as it glows across the hills and know it’s Love, written in color, framed in by the corners of my living room window…so beautiful, it shocks me, especially as I wonder over the feeling that it was hung there, just for me. Or how often through the words of a friend, it occurs to me that I am being Invisibly hugged .
I long to document His grace. Leave hints of His faithfulness for Annabelle to someday uncover. Proof that He is with us. Evidence of His goodness. A history of love. Our history.
Everyone blogs for a reason. Now you know mine.
