Hello!

It has been way too long since I’ve posted. I have started on and added to one in particular several times, but it is weighty, and I have yet to finish it. Whenever I have an unfinished project, I tend to freeze up until I have completed the task. But sometimes, the task isn’t meant to be completed quite then, especially if it prevents other good ideas from their development.

My blog has been on my mind throughout these last five or so months, and I have missed publishing posts.

I’ve had many ideas – too many (written in the notes section of my phone) – piling up into a menacing stack too daunting to tackle. So I came up with a plan to prevent this unnecessary procrastination in the future. I believe the best way to keep the blog going strong is to write more often with less pressure.

When I first started this project I was reluctant to write too often for fear of having nothing of any value to say in between the more serious posts. That worked to motivate me to establish quality content in the beginning, but I need a different approach moving forward.

The plan is for my topics to be as light-hearted (not necessarily inspirational or impactful) as they may be in between the more “meaty” posts. I want to have more fun with it and hopefully engage in a more community feel. My idea was to build an authentic conversation with others who would engage with or appreciate the type of content I put into the blog and have others share as they feel compelled. I do hope to grow in interaction and visitors/followers.

I want to keep the categories I have already created, and maybe create a few more.

It’s been months since I’ve pursued photography as I have in the past. I can’t wait to get out there and get some more great shots for the blog!

There have been a couple of funny stories (indeed, at my expense) that I could have shared. I may begin to incorporate some of those. 😊

I have discovered that dog posts are by far the most popular. It would be my pleasure to write more about my dogs, and it seems that people like those sorts of posts (though I’ve only written a few so far).

From the beginning, I wanted to encourage and point others to Jesus. I hope to shine His light to others who may be walking in darkness and need hope. For me, this is the most important part of my writing.

This June will be the fourth anniversary of the start of this blog. Thank you for being a part of it. Be on the lookout for more frequent posts!

  1. I love the transparency! Giving us a glimpse into the writing process, it’s fascinating to someone who gets stumped by writing a greeting card! 😅
    And I adore the pictures (told ya I wasn’t a writer!).
    Being a creature of habit, I keep trying to double click the photos, to show my favs, alas this is not IG. So, I have to say that pic of the muffins and your moms beautiful painting, is an all time FAV OF MIINE!!

  2. Beautiful pictures! Looking forward to more pics, thoughts, and challenges to be more like Jesus!

  3. I am so excited that you will be posting your blog more often. I have really been missing them; your pictures, your insightful thoughts, your humor, and your very heart towards the Lord and people. Yeah!!!

I would love to hear from you.
