Let the Journey Begin! (Part 1)

I really don't know where I should begin. I'm stepping into the great unknown. The uncertainty of what I will write about, who will even read it, and where it may take me. I have been told for a few years by a few friends that I should blog. My reaction was always "blog about what?" Apparently I'm more interesting than I perceive myself. 

Telling a little more about myself would be a good start I suppose. I am married to the most wonderfully perfect man for me that God could pick. (Please note that I realize he's not perfect, but he's perfect for me.) Big difference We've been on our journey for 21 years, and have been married for 16+ years. For the math people out there, he grabbed me up YOUNG, and as he says, he raised me the way he wanted. Some days I'm thinking he regrets rubbing off on me so. (Just to interject here, you will have to get to know me to know that I will show lots of sarcasm, and joking in my writings- so be well advised!) My husband is the Senior Pastor of a wonderful church in Alabama that we have been blessed to be at since 2005. We have had a wonderful journey in ministry that has taught us things we'd never trade for anything. We've been part-time Children's Pastors, full time Youth Pastors and finally we are at the Senior/Lead Pastors journey in our ministry. There is no one else I'd rather be with on this journey than Ryan. He is my rock, although I don't tell him near enough. He amazes me at his growth with the Lord, and how far he has come, not only in his sermons, but his knowledge. And the best part is he is SOOOO goodlooking!! ;) 

Now, what the Lord has blessed us with is not what I had in MY plans when we married. But then again, when you are in the Lord's Will, it doesn't really matter what your plans are, does it? Jeremiah 29:11 confirms this, "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." (NLT)
Those blessings are a post all their own...hopefully, you'll return to my blog for part 2, and to hear about our blonde blessings!

Enjoy the Journey!

  1. I LOVE this! Awesome! I also need glasses, so when I first read it, I thought it said, "Ryan is 50,000 looking!" 50,000 years old? 50,000 on the handsome rating scale? Anyway, you ROCK and, well, Ryan is OK too! ;) Love you guys!
