I started blogging just over a year ago because I felt I had so many words bubbling up inside me that I just had to get out, but nowhere to put them. God gently reminded me of this wonderful invention called the internet, where anyone who likes can write anything he or she writes, and it is available for others to read.
The joy of writing and of from time to time having people comment favourably on my words has been immense. It has brought with it an unexpected bonus, though – I’ve made new friends!
I have become, in a small measure, part of a community of thinkers and writers who share their thoughts and words with each other and the world. Most of them – most of you – I have never met. One of them is a woman with a wonderful sense of humour who blogs about her walk with God and the lessons she’s learning as a stay at home ‘mom’ somewhere in California. I’ve grown to love her heart, her perspective, and her love for her kids. Her name is Melissa, and today I have the huge honour of guest posting over on her website.
I wrote about writing – it was a post that I was itching to write, but just didn’t quite fit with my blog. Thanks, Melissa, for giving me a space for it! Everyone else – hop over there and start reading!
