The Day I Came Out of the Closet

A year ago today.

June 29, 2015.

That was the day that I went public with my blog.

I came out of my own closet of fear and put myself out there.  To say the past year has been interesting is putting it mildly. I am so thankful for all the support that everyone has shown me over the past year through Facebook and my blog.

Honestly, it still shocks me to death when people come up to me and tell me that they love reading my blog or that they can’t wait till Monday for me to post something. I still can’t believe that people actually read this thing!

So. What have I learned in the past year?

I have learned that God can be found everywhere.

That He chooses to speak to me in the weirdest of places.   I think it’s because doing so keeps me on my toes, it keeps me looking for Him constantly.

That He craves to speak to ALL of us.

I’ve learned that people just want to be heard and understood.  They want someone to say, “Hey, I’ve been there and I survived and you will too.”

Lastly, I have learned that we can be each other’s own worst enemy. When what we as humans need to do is to come along side each other and help each other up and out. Not shame and blame.

What’s in store for the next year?  Who knows. I’ve always wanted to write a book. I have no idea what to write about or if I even could. My knowledge base about everything is about an inch deep and a mile long….

I am so super thankful for you guys. My I pray for you all daily. I pray that you hear His voice. That you feel His love. He is so good to us. So much more than we deserve.

“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy”  Phil 1:3-4

I’m a book-shelving, former tap dancer, wanna be writer, singer,
and banjo player, mother of 4, wife of 1, follower of Christ,
walking in the shadow of the Proverbs 31 woman
and redeemed by the grace and love of an Almighty God…
just living the dream.
