You know, that conversation that happens in every household these days. The husband turns to his lovely wife and says, "Honey, why don't you write a blog?"
Wait, what? I have facebook and for the sake of my marriage I recently joined twitter (my husband really enjoys "tweeting" and kindly
insisted informed me it would make him feel loved if I, too, participated in the craze... which I have secretly come to love), but now a blog? So I had to dig a little deeper...
"What do you mean honey?" I asked. "Well, you are at home now and I just thought you might want to have a blog. You can talk about all the mom stuff you do now. Like working out, cooking, crafts, and kids. Maybe God could use your blog as a tool to minister to other moms."
Reeeaaallllyyyyyy..... Well, thankfully I hold my husbandin high regard, and in trusting his Godly discernment over our family, how could I say no? Maybe he is on to something :)
So, here I sit. Baby on the floor playing (a very cute little man, might I add), dinner in the other room
cooking waiting to be cooked (recipe to come tomorrow!) , and me, who has yet to shower since returning from the gym, at the computer starting my blog journey.
It isn't pretty; in fact, it is usually a mess! But isn't that the best part of life? And what's more, isn't that where God shines the brightest? I know the bigger mess I make, the brighter His light seems to shine.
Speaking of messes, I have a big one to clean up in the other room.
Has your husband ever approached you with a "suggestion" that made you laugh?
What hobbies do you now enjoy the most after someone pushed you to try something new?
