the beginning

All blogs have to start somewhere.

I will begin this one by saying that I am by no means a writer... so, if you're looking for something profound and elegant here, you may be sorely disappointed. {Sorry!}

I also have no idea in which direction this blog will find itself. What I do know is that I have currently been using Facebook as a faux blog and it has been mentioned many times that I should start one of these things.

The real thing.

The one that requires much more writing than a simple 'comment' under a photograph and a much bigger leap than a quick 'status update'. Reasons are for inspiration, creativity, parenting and cooking.

As flattered as I am that some may see me as an inspiration, I'm beyond humbled by this.

I'm the quiet girl who sits silently by watching and learning from others. I don't long to be in the spotlight. And many times I feel like I'm not one anyone should be looking to for anything. Imperfection at it's finest!

But then there's the issue of Ephesians 1:4. I am chosen. So are you. And I was chosen before the creation of the world. So even when I think I'm nothing or I have nothing to give, my heavenly father has never thought that. He dearly loves me. And you. That means I have to dearly love myself, too. So, maybe once all the dust settles, I do have something to offer though my simple musings and life.

We'll see where it leads...
