I must admit that I have been extremely tentative about writing this first blog entry. I ask myself if I have anything others would want to hear, or why what I say is important enough to post in a public forum. Then, I remember the process is for me. It is a process of opening up, of revealing oneself in ways that may be helpful to yourself and those around you.
I have long had a desire to speak out, to use the voice that God has given me to share about my joys and trials. The unique path that I have walked, or often tripped down has been often fulfilling, frustrating or just difficult, but never ever dull. The words that tell it need to spill freely so I expect to hop onto a soapbox or two along the way, and I also expect to be challenged while I face a personal demon or two. I just hope they are not too big!
