I’ve held off from starting a blog for mainly two reasons:
I don’t have time to do it well.
I don’t have time to do it regularly.
Becoming a mother has helped me to see there is no room for perfectionism in this life. For some reason, I was striving as if there were. I don’t have more time, now, but these moments I’m experiencing with Zion, with our family, they feel worthy of recording. Remembering.
The details, the things I’m learning. I don’t want to rely solely on my memory (cause, clearly that seems to fail me more and more!) I want them in words and images.
So, I’ve decided it’s time. I’m hesitant but giddy to dive in! Let the inconsistencies begin. 🙂 A lot of what I post will be updates about our family and the details I want in writing (I think!) But I’m trying to keep this free of expectations. What I do know:
I want to process what living with joy through pain and celebration looks like. Considering the everyday along with the extraordinary – for both are worthy of praising God.
Despite trials, I will choose joy.
Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. -James 1:2-3
