First Blog. Yikes. So much pressure...

So I've entered the blog world. Great...now what?


I wanted to go into this with no purpose for the blog...but that seems pointless. Everything needs to have a purpose so here it is: I just want this blog to be a fun way for y'all to stay up to date with the nomads we have become. I want to share life and recipes and crafts and projects that I'm up to and I want you to be encouraged.

"Then sings my soul" is a part of one of my favorite hymns, H
ow Great Thou Art. I want love and mercy and hope and grace to be an overflow of my heart & soul. I want my soul to sing when I can't seem to.
"Yellow Song Bird"...don't try to find too much meaning in that. I love to sing and I love birds and blue was already taken. sidenote: Lauren Chandler (Matt Chandler's wife) is quoted on my facebook page saying,

"I love birds. I love that they bring glory to God just by being birds. I want to be more like that...bringing glory to God just by being who He has created me to be."

I don't remember if I got that from another blog, if someone sent it to me or what...but I love it. It is a great reminder that our sovereign Lord has created me with a purpose and if I'm not living out who He has made me to be or bringing him glory....well friends, I'm not doing my job as a Christian.
Disclaimer: I can't promise that this blog will be full of wisdom and wit...or even capital letters.



I'll leave you with a verse that encouraged me this morning and a picture of myself and my handsome husband :)


The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17

Our King is for you! Whoop :)


love.

  1. This is great. I just started my blog yesterday and randomly happened upon this post of yours today. I feel alot of pressure for there to be this magnanimous purpose, but I feel the same way you did about it. Thanks for this, it brought me peace.

    PS How Great Thou Art is my FAVORITE hymn :)
