Officially a blogger - My first post (ever)

For a long time now I have been contemplating whether to have a blog or not. Today it suddenly hit me - why not? I came across a quote yesterday but have totally forgotten where I saw it but the person who wrote it was saying that they can not be good at everything but when they do find what they are good at they will not miss the chance to do that thing. This got me thinking. I love writing and so why not do what I love I asked myself. Over the years I have written stories, journals and when I read them today I am amazed at the way I saw things. In a nutshell I am glad I wrote those things, I saved precious memories of my life which otherwise I probably would have forgotten today or would not remember well.

The main purpose of this blog is to record my thoughts and feelings as I take my journey through life dancing with God. Yes, dancing and not only walking with God. I like the idea of seeing my everyday life as a dance with God such that each day I learn more and more to dance according to His tune and not mine. I take my relationship with God seriously and make it my priority to live by the greatest commandment Jesus mentioned in Mark 12: 30-31 -'And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all soul and with all your mind and with all your strength...You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'

I have many blogs that I follow and I am amazed at how much reading about other people's lives and thoughts inspires me and teaches me a lot of stuff. These people have touched my life, at times carrying me through difficult situations and yet they did not even know it. I hope that this blog will be able do the same for other people.

Happy reading.

  4. Shona, welcome to Blogsville!

    I look forward to reading more about your life and your 'dance' with God! Blogging has really blessed me. I've 'met' so many great people from all over the world and sometimes you write a post and you have no idea how it can impact people {positively}. One tip - always stay true to yourself and God!

The Good Changes

Perhaps I am a person of contradictions but here is the thing – I like doing new things but I am not a huge fan of change. I like planning ...
