Ok, so I definitely fell off the blogging wagon quite a while ago (years). That wagon must have hit a pretty big bump and flung me quite a distance. Plus, I got lazy and discovered facebook. One sentence status and, Voila, I’m done! Easy, peasy, lemon, squeezy! My hubby has been harassing me to get started again and I’m really tempted. After all, that will keep me away from housework. Burnout doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel about that some days!
James and I designed this blog in 2005. I had all (ok, most) of the ideas and he did all the techie stuff. It was fun and I still like it but it is obviously outdated. It’s time, I suppose, for a fresh coat of paint if I am actually going to revive this thing. I know the simple and colorless sites are really popular, but I don’t think they are me. I know if I mention this to James his eyes will get as big as saucers and he will start panting like a puppy dog. (I’m exaggerating here a little bit) He loves to show off his techexpertise to me. Kinda like flexing his muscles! Ooo la la!
Well, it’s been so long since I’ve blogged that these two paragraphs have worn me out! I need to flex my creative muscles and begin sharing my thoughts and life again. Speaking of thoughts and life, James and I have started a podcast that has almost killed me. Not really, but it has pushed me outside my comfort zone. That seems to be a recurring theme over the past year. I feel like God keeps asking me to step out and express myself. I want it to be perfect, He just wants me to give Him something to work with. Is He asking you to do something? Are you holding back because you think you won’t be good enough? He can’t use nothing. Step out and make the effort. Give Him something to work with. He doesn’t need perfection. He can use anything except nothing.
Until next time. . . . if there is one. Just kidding, I am going to make the effort! ~ Julie
