Change is a good thing. You may have noticed that I’ve made a change to my site title… the url remains the same, but the title is now: mama’s journal. I’ve done this for a couple of reasons, one being, streamlining a couple of blogs and the other, a first step in changing the url to this page. I recently noticed that there’s a “welcome home blog” page for home-coming soldiers and so, to leave that honour for them, I have decided to merge a couple of my sites into this location and eventually discontinue the use of thewelcomehome.
Additionally, I’m wanting to begin “blogging” again and not without a bit of fear and trepidation, I might add, I sincerely want to just write what’s on my heart… slices of life, and personal commentary, but my fear is that what I often want to share might be misconstrued, misread as an attack on those who see slices of life perhaps a bit (or a LOT) differently than I do. That fear is a powerful silencer. Then, there’s a myriad of fears that my failures, my kid’s failures, my shortcomings do or will disqualify me. So, I can only fall back on Scripture and say, not that I have attained… but I press on. (Pips 3.12, 14)
As many of you know, I love to write — I write things every day — and so I’d like to, once again, share pages of my life story in hopes that my observations, gleanings, experiences — yes, and failures — might be of some help, some hope, and some encouragement to you.
This is my story. These are now pages of this mama’s journal.
