Last week as we sat and planned out the new year; one of the lists I made was a list of blog topics I am wanting to cover.
Things I wish to blog about in 2010:
*Devotional thoughts - from my read through the Bible and Obedience theme
*Recipes I Find Fun and Fast for the family
*Guest Interviews - "Meet.."
*Child Training Topics and Tips
*Family Outing / Family Night Ideas
*Thoughts on raising a special needs child
I also want to include some give aways this year. I want the give aways to be things that will help strengthen other's walk with God.
I believe that God has called me to be a wife, mother and homemaker. As I seek to do His will for my life I want to share things I am learning with others - so that they can be encouraged in the way. In a day and age when being a wife, mother and homemaker are so looked down upon in a general sense, I think it is best for all of us to be an encouragement to one another. What we are doing IS making a difference.
I loved this poem I just finished reading the other night. Thought I would share it with you all. Enjoy:
If you have gone a little way ahead of me, call back-
'Twill cheer my heart and help my feet along the stony track;
And, if perchance, faith's light is dim, because the oil is low,
Your call will guide my lagging course as wearily I go.
Call back, and tell me that He went with you into the storm;
Call back,and say He kept you when the forest's roots were torn;
That when the heavens thundered and the earthquake shook the hill,
He bore you up and held you when the very air was till.
O friend, call back and tell me, for I cannot see your face;
They say it glows with triumph, and your feet bound in the face;
But there are mists between us, and my spirit eyes are dim,
And I cannot see the glory, though I long for word of Him.
But if you'll say He heard you when your prayer was but a cry,
And if you'll say He saw you through the night's sin-darkened sky,
If you have gone a little way ahead, O friend, call back-
"Twill cheer my heart and hep my feet along the stony track.
I want my blog to call back to what He is doing in my life; how He is enabling me to do it. I want my blog to call back to remembrance for me - when discouragement comes - that "this too will pass" and life will go on. Join me this year - as I seek to obey Him and watch Him change me.
