First Entry

I’ve never written a blog before and I was encouraged to do so by my husband. He’s a big, big blogger. I wanted to explore how I see life. You may not agree with everything you read here, but understand that it’s just one woman’s humble opinion and not to be taken seriously . . . unless of course I’m being serious.

I find that life is funny at times and God has a sense of humor. Why do I say this? Many reasons - one being He created us didn’t He? Now I don’t have any biblical basis for my theory, it’s just my theory. It’s quite simple, when we make that decision to follow Christ, He accepts us just as we are. He died for us while we were yet sinners, isn’t that what the good book states. What I think happened next was - God changed our hearts . . . not our personalities. Some who know me find this a bit scary (because they try to imagine me without Christ . . . a little fear never hurt anyone I say, always keep them wondering).

One of the things I try to do is find the humor in situations. I love to tell a story and yes, I know that I sometimes take liberties in the delivery of the story, but that’s the fun of it. Why tell a story in an ordinary, unimaginative way (just the facts I mean), when you can add a few colorful comments and expressions to make the listener hang on your every word. My husband is just-the-facts-type of guy and I’m not. Telling a story together is very interesting; he wants to tell the facts and I want to expand on it to make it more interesting. It’s okay though because we’ve come to an unspoken agreement – when I’m on a roll, he let’s me roll. That’s why we’re happily married for almost 25 years.

So, I’ll try to examine life as I see it . . . mostly with humor but there are times when life takes a serious turn and I may throw a curve ball. So come with me on this journey and see where it takes us.
