Sounds like “clogging!”
And in a way, it is!!! Blogging for me feels like clogging. Sounds far fetched? Well, there are so many ideas and thoughts bouncing around my head that I visualize them “dancing” in my brain. So, for the next days, weeks -or whatever (?), I will attempt to put on paper these “energetic dances in my head.”
All of this is done in hopes that there might be a chorus or two that will resonate with you. I’m not really a “writer” -more of a “chatterer” (I often say, the Lord gave me the gift of “gab.”) For many years I have processed life by scribbling regularly on scraps of paper and with this amazing invention of this “blog thing,” I am inspired all the more to write and share with you.
For fourteen years I directed the Children & Family Ministry at my church. Then I became a “Nina” (our word for “grandmother”) nine years ago and a whole new world opened to me. Even though I was not prepared for it (too busy, too young, too ….), it has been one of the best gifts God has given to me!
As I have prayed, thought, and sought the Lord in how to be faithful in this now cherished role; I have encountered many lies and misconceptions in our culture about Life — particularly in regards to parenting, grand parenting and grown parenting! Passion has burst within me to set the record straight (!) as I believe is stated in God’s living Word! Optimistic, I know! Naive? Yes! Foolish? Probably. But it is with a huge heart that I “gab” with you about the bold miss truths we buy into in our society -even here in the sunny South, the heartland of the Bible belt. So, tie up your dancing shoes and join me on this dance floor. Enjoy a “turn” or two with me in this grown parenting life?!
