This is an experiment. And an invitation. There are times when an empty bench like this one, surrounded by lush greenery with a river just peeking between the trees, calls to my soul. When days have been filled with people and appointments, when I can’t think of one more creative menu for supper, I just want to go sit on a bench. Over the coming months, that’s what I hope this blog will become. A quiet place to ponder, think, question, grow–with each other and with God.
It’s been almost two years since I first felt “nudged” by God to expand the writing I’ve done over several years. To be honest, the idea of a blog scared me: who needs to read yet more paragraphs on line? so many blogs seem to be just wandering thoughts without content, do I have anything of worth to add to the blog world? After much thinking, praying and discussion with friends, I’ve decided to move ahead.
Each Monday will have new thoughts–some will hopefully be helpful, all will have been birthed in my own heart and imagination. Maybe you’ll sit with me but more importantly, I hope you’ll sit with God. I look forward to these times together and trust you’ll communicate your thoughts with me.
