HERE I AM

So, I start again on the whole blogging thing. I really do enjoy blogging, I don't know if anyone enjoys reading my blogs, it has been quite a while since I have blogged. I have a friend who has a blog, and one of the things I appreciate about her blog, is that she is honest about everything, and does not hide who she is from anyone...in this aspect, my plan is to blog "the same" by the same I mean, I intend to be brutally honest as well. Our lives are too short, to complicated and to "real" to NOT be real with each other. I take comfort in knowing I am not the only one going through one thing or another, and maybe someone, somewhere will take comfort in my struggles, and my joys as well. We are called to comfort and encourage on another, how can we do this if we are too busy putting on our "Christians are wonderful happy and joyful ALL the time" face? The fact of the matter is, that is not true. Yes, we do find great peace and joy in spite of any storms, however, we still HAVE storms, and they still effect us emotionally, and there is nothing wrong with that. Quite contrary, it's those times, that we seek the Lord even more, even deeper...don't you think that is why we have those storms in the first place?
So, why HERE I AM? Because, that is my heart for the Lord, "Here I am Lord, no matter what you want from me, I am willing to do, or go, or be, knowing that the only way to get there is by YOUR strength and guidance!" I know that no matter where I am, even if it is in the bottom of a pit....HE is there, tending to me and helping me out of that terrible pit!
So, this first blog, of my new blogging, I guess is meant to let you know, who I am, where I stand, and to hope that while I share my growing pains and joys, that it will somehow be an encouragement to someone.
Have a wonderfully blessed day!!

Hi Andresa,
I've been blogging since around the first of February, mostly family, ministry and scrapbooking and I enjoy it a lot. It's actually how I got to meet one of the ladies in Nashville. She's a ministers' wife from Georgia!
