Why I Still Blog

Still blogging after all these years.   { Thought Collage,  est. 2006/11 }

 

What I hope the blog {as autobiographical as it may be} is accomplishing:

From Frederick Buechner’s words in Now and Then (via John Eldredge’s Walking with God)

“There is something more than a little disconcerting about writing your autobiography.  When people have occasionally asked me what I am working on, I have found it impossible to tell them without an inward blush.  As if anybody cares or should care…

But I do it anyway.  I do it because it seems to me that no matter who you are, and no matter how eloquent or otherwise, if you tell your own story with sufficient candor and concreteness, it will be an interesting story and in some sense a universal story…

If God speaks to us at all other than through such official channels as the Bible and the Church, then I think that he speaks to us largely through what happens to us, so what I have done in theis book…is to listen back over what has happened to me – as I hope my readers may be moved to listen back over what has happened to them – for the sound, above all else, of His voice…[For] His word to us is both recoverable and precious beyond the telling.”

This is the record of the sound of His {unwavering, thoroughly faithful} voice in my life. 

I am leaving it here for Tara, Dave and Hunter Magoo, for Steph, Tristan and the Kelley kids (Gavin, Guinivere and Gemma May), for Tredessa, for Rocky, Jovan and the girls (Averi and Amelie Belle), and for Stormie and the blessed add-ons ;p and to all the rest to come and for all those ever-after who come from them.

We proclaim to you what we ourselves have actually seen and heard so that you may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We are writing these things so that you may fully share our joy.

1 John 1.3-4 NLT

NOTE TO:  Stephanie, Stefane and Kimberlee, Tredessa and Stormie, Ellie, Mary and Sarah, Heather and Denise: L O V I N G the chance to hear your hearts and walk this season-of-the-soul with you!

  1. I LOVE your blog and I LOVE your heart. You are wise beyond belief and I am grateful for the way you so willingly share of yourself through your blog. I’m soaking in each and every page of the book and He is speaking to my soul…can’t wait to share the journey.
