For those of you who have seen the movie "Up", you will understand the title of my first blog, and the struggle it was for me to get it up and running. For those of you who haven't seen the movie, there's a dog who speak quite eloquently in a human's voice (with the help of a high-tech collar), but at one point, gets easily distracted and yells "squirrel!". I've yelled "squirrel!" ("termites!" & "stinging caterpillar!", too) a few times this week. Not because I didn't want to do a blog--I've had several friends suggest blogging to me as I've been sharing my spiritual journey with them. I prayed about it, & I'm at a point spiritually where I desire to share my journey with others. I had a blog half done on
Matthew 7:24-29 (building your house on a rock--coming soon!), and it kept taking my heart to a place of
thankfulness. So yeah, my first blog is going to be all about the shout-outs! First, I want to give praise to my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ. I love you! You are my rock, my protector, my strength, my life. To all my sisters in Christ, I'm throwing love & air kisses out to you. Thank you putting up with me, listening to me, praying for me, running with me, & inspiring me. I thank the Lord every day I wake up for blessing my life with such amazing women.
..and so ends my first blog. I blame stage fright for the shortness. Don't worry, ya'll know I've got a lot to say!
