Who, what, and why?

Does the world really need another blog? 

Probably not.

I suppose this isn’t as much for the world as it is for me.
My thoughts.  My feelings.  My lessons learned and relearned.
And maybe, just maybe, there will be something someone else needs as well.

I struggled to name this blog. (Is that a bad sign?)  I wanted something clever, pithy, memorable… But mostly I wanted this endeavor to reflect my heart and what’s most important to me, the Light in my life that comes from knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Yeah, it’s kind of about me, but more than me. Hopefully.

I have been married to my oh-so-patient CPA husband for over 20 years and am mom to two pretty amazing teenagers. Yep, I used the words “amazing” and “teenagers” in the same sentence; they take after their father.

An English teacher by training, I have a love of words and hold a special place in my heart for semicolons; how could you not love semicolons?

I have been blessed to be primarily a SAHM for over 17 years, but enjoy working part-time as a student teacher supervisor. I have also had the privilege of teaching Women’s Bible studies for over 12 years at churches, retreats, and conferences. I love digging into the Truth of God’s Word and applying and sharing what I learn!

A little more about me?  Honestly, I’m kind of goofy and tend to giggle at inappropriate times.  I will probably talk your ear off.  I like to ponder stuff.  Parades make me cry. Every time. (No, I don’t know why.  Yes, I know that’s weird.)

Oh, and I’m told I’m pretty funny; I’ll own that.   Even if you don’t think so, I often crack myself up.   Life’s just too short not to find the humor in things.

So, why another blog? Because of this:

“for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.” -Ephesians 5:8-10

And this:

“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” – Philippians 1:9-11

Welcome.
