Before I went to Blissdom, I thought I would have all this creative energy and time to get my vision for my blog firmly grounded. I know that I want to create a community. A real community. This should be a place to celebrate each other but it should also be a place to lift each other high during the lows. It is important that readers know that they are not judged because the author is human too. Life is exciting. I want this blog community to be exciting too.
So Blissdom is three weeks away. And while I have some ideas on where I want to be as a blogger, I just can not seem to get it together. Life has taken control in a time where I need to be able to dream. The once creative necessity has been replaced by fear and doubt. I have no idea what the future holds for my family, let alone how can I worry about this fairy tale career I have made up for myself?
But today I realized, that things may not be going my way but they will pass. And out of this storm will be something beautiful; a rainbow of sorts. A promise that his works are intentional. A promise to stop and listen to what I need to learn. A promise of things yet to come. A promise to make the most of my gifts. A promise of continual support. A promise to you -- that I am getting it together. For this blog is so much more important that a housewife vent. It is a safe place. A safe place for what I hope will be many, soon.
Blissdom is still three weeks away and I can not promise that I will have my ideas solidly rooted before I head the car north. But perhaps, that I why God made sure I would get to Nashville?
While it seems to be a down week at the Sew Four palace the Lord showed up and gave me a place to start. Four words to start with.............( I would love to hear what they mean to you!)
Welcome to Sew Four my friends, come see what this blog is so for.
