An urge to write.

Lately, I've felt an urge to write. I can't shake it. I imagine all the disjointed thoughts stumbling around in my mind coming together like a symphony, only to get distracted 5 minutes later by facebook, or twitter, or instagram, or pinterest, or Downton, or or or.  I had this other blog where I wrote faithfully for a few years before I was 8 months pregnant & teaching full time at 2 schools & decided blogging had to hit the back burner.  The thing about the other blog was I occasionally wrote about meaningful things but more often, I ignored the deep, pressing thoughts and meditations from my heart.  I chose materialism over substance and funny nothings over hard somethings, and eventually, shockingly, I got bored.  Bored of writing nothing about nothing.  But, like I said, I have this urge to write that won't go away.  So nagging is it that I learned how to customize this fancy schmancy new and improved look using HTML (without the help of my computer-science-whiz husband). Seriously. What-the-what?!?!? 

And so here we are.  You (anybody???) and me.  Or maybe just me.  Recording my thoughts, musings, prayers, meditations, highs, lows, and everything in between.  The plan is that I will look back on this in 6 months, 1 year, and 5 years, (when nothing is going as planned) and I'll click on that archive and see the truth that defines my life, a beautiful "history" of God's goodness, one page (or rather, post) after another: His mercies were new every morning. His faithfulness was great. His grace was sufficient. His life in me was abundant. And is. And the 2014 me and the 2018 me will look at the 2013 God who was faithful each day and who is the same yesterday, today and forever.

So, here we go.
