Happy Resurrection Sunday! I felt Easter Sunday would be a perfect day to start the first post of my new blog. A good day for new beginnings! Time and time again, I have been told that somewhere in my crazy world, I have a story (or two) to tell that may help someone who needs encouragement and support from a person who has been there and done that.
For those of you who do not know me, I am a believer in God. However, I am also a sinner. That sure sounds contradictory for a “Christian”, right? Just because I am a Christian or any other Christian for that matter, does not make us immune to sin. We are only human and no one is perfect; no one except God. However, I try to do the right things, make the right choices, but when I don’t, I pull up my boot-straps, ask for forgiveness and do the best I can not to fall again. The main thing for me, is not dwelling on the past. What’s done is done. Spiritual growth is a work in progress and trust me, I am too! I do my best to stay in a routine of reading the Word, journaling and staying in communication with God. The minute I deviate from that part of my daily routine, I don’t seem to be at my best. We all have what works for us to get through the trials of life. Some choose yoga, exercise, meditation, … I choose staying in communication with God. Although, I definitely need to incorporate more of that exercise piece.
I have been known to be a starter of many things and rarely a finisher of one thing. Today was my deadline for starting and posting this blog and I am happy to say I actually finished one thing!
