Blogging. What a funny word.

Blogging. What a funny word. 

Plogging actually fits the bill a bit better for “personal logging,” don’t you think? Regardless of what it’s called, I’m doing it.

Why?  Great question, thanks for asking.

Maybe I should start with what I’m not trying to do through this blog. I’m not blogging:

  • To educate.  There are plenty of sites out there that will increase your knowledge, provide training, and enhance your intellect.  This is not one of them.
  • To debate.  Honestly, I’m not fond of conflict so I am not fond of debate either. Sure, I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions but I won’t likely write about controversial hot topics of the day.  Or maybe I will…
  • To beat you over the head with my “agenda.”  There is no ulterior motive hidden in my words, so don’t bother looking too hard. I’m a “what you see is what you get” kind of person.

Enough said?  So, here are the reasons I choose to blog:

  • To encourage.  Life is full of ups and downs, highs and low, bugs and windshields. I hope others can be encouraged by the chaos in my life, and the calm I can often find in the midst of it (as fleeting as it may be).
  • To provide hope.  Life is less-than-perfect, and sometimes it’s just plain tough to make it from day to day. Hope is what gets us through the tough nights, the long days, and the moments we feel we just can’t take much more.  I’ve been through some tough stuff (although not nearly as tough as some others), and I’m making it though.  You can, too.
  • To make you chuckle. I have to admit, my life is pretty funny at times.  Sometimes if I don’t laugh in the moment I’ll break down, cry, and probably have a nervous breakdown in the process…
  • To let you know that God loves you. Quite simply, you matter to God.  Because you matter to Him, you matter to me. I’m not here to brow beat you with religion, but to simply share the ways I see God at work in my own life and the lives of others.
