What’s your here?

I wasn’t planning to post anything today. {Thought I’d give you a break.} But then I came across this and felt compelled to share. In her book, Annie F. Downs writes: The world needs to see your courage in action. But you live in your town for a reason. What is it? Why are you there? Why is here your spot on the map?

I’ve always thought that I would begin blogging at some point… never really knowing what that point was. This summer, the idea has been rolling around in my head. Why not now? What better time to start a blog?  Before that, I was {very passively} toying with the idea and praying about it but I hadn’t made any real moves towards blogging. And then a couple of weeks ago, I was reading a blog… Read More
