I am through-the-roof excited to be sitting here writing my first blog entry.
This is my idea of a big ol’ ginormous blessing.
I am trying to scrounge up the appropriate words to explain all of the emotions that I am feeling. It’s complicated.
Here I go….
This is my attempt at an accurate and detailed description of all this excitement bottled up inside of my body.
I feel like it’s possible that I will pee my pants, and my heart is beating super fast. I have about one million thoughts of love, blessing, thankfulness, inspiration, security, insecurity, fear, and pure courage all jumbled up…almost like someone threw them all in a blender and created the perfect emotional JESUS SMOOTHIE.
Come to think of it, the bouncy, racing heart and bladder concern may be directly linked to the java-super-slam I had this morning.
Needless to say, I am blessedly excited….
Speaking of undeserved blessings, thank you Lord for coffee.
I sure do love it.
Coffee is my guilty pleasure.
There are people without electricity, without food, without water, and without yet knowing the hope and love of Jesus.
I am able to walk to the coffee pot each morning, push a button, enjoy a hot cup of coffee-all the while with JESUS in my heart.
What an underserved blessing!
Lord, may I always have eyes to see what you have blessed me with, and have the hands to reach out to those in need.
Ok y’all, what I am saying is that I am flat-out-crazy excited about this opportunity to write and to share my heart. This level of excitement is not exactly safe.
If I were ever asked to choose one true passion other than Jesus, it would be writing-no doubt about it.
It always has been.
As a young child, I would find a peaceful place, most-often times in the great outdoors, and I would just write about stuff…
about life, about how I felt, about people, about happiness, and about heartbreak.
Almost anything I would encounter, I would find joy in writing about it. It was hard to find me without a notebook and pencil.
Today, is no different.
If by chance I come up missing in Walmart, the notebook aisle is the answer.
Search no longer. You will find me happy there.
Anyway, when I write, I find peace. I find calm. It has not always been something that I have understood, but now I really “get it.”
When I write, I find Jesus there.
It’s my one on one time with Him.
Over the past few years, I have been praying for God to help me bring peace to others in a world that is not exactly peaceful, to bring others calm in the storm of life, to bring glory to JESUS in a world that seems to be in a dead sprint far from HIM.
My dream is to help others find their place where they best connect and meet with JESUS. He will meet us anywhere, but He has a calling and a place for all of us. A place that is unique. A place that is special. A place that has huge blessings in store for us. Most importantly, a place that THAT BRINGS GLORY BACK TO HIM.
Color of Light has been that place for me.
Like I said, I am wear-a-pamper-and-a-pacemaker excited about what God is doing here.
