The Purpose

This little blog started out as a creative outlet. A place to put my thoughts down and document my memories. It still serves that purpose, and so much more.

What do I want this blog of mine to do? This card I found in my daughter's back pack says it perfectly...

{yes, the G+J stands for God+J, you can't make this stuff up}


I do want my blog to be a place where God is glorified.

Where people are encouraged and hopefully challenged.





Where you can get a good laugh now and then, because sometimes I do feel like I'm living in a sitcom.

A place where my Hubby is honored and respected.

Where I remember the small and big things that make up our everyday.

A place where my children will see my love for them.

A place for fellowship.

What an incredible journey this has been so far. I can't wait to see what's next!

I absolutely love this post, I want the same thing for my blog!! I don't want to look back on any of it and think "I shouldn't have said that about my husband," or "I shoudn't have aired that dirty laundry." Thank you so much for the reminder!!

I've visited your blog lots of times, but somehow haven't followed until now! I just remedied that :)
