One Day at a Time or One Year of Blogging

So I sit here...wanting to blog for the past few days, but nothing is coming.  It's not exactly that I have nothing to say, it's quite the opposite actually - my life is running in about a million directions and I can't seem to catch up.  Not to mention, though I am (and really I don't get that saying but anyways) I have this weird ear problem where I feel like I'm underwater.  It's not painful just really annoying...anyywaays...

It's crazy, I just realized the other day that I have been blogging for a year now...say WHAT...how did that happen?!?!  Okay, so technically it isn't a year until the 21st but I'm shocked none the less! 

It's interesting how I came to blog...never thought I'd be here - especially a year later.  For those of you who don't know I started the blog when I got the notion to start an online Christian living magazine for women.  It launched last March and ran for three months.  It was great but oh sooo much work.  To make a long story short, I had started with the blog, turned it into a webzine and then back into the blog, where I have, somewhat comfortably, found my groove.

I had lofty goals for the webzine and if I didn't already have a full time job as a Homemaker, they might have come to be - but ah God is good and I learned many a lessons through all that and well here I am one year later blogging - crazy, I tell you!

So back to my life in a million directions.  Really it's mostly not even my life that's that busy, not directly anyways.  As I mentioned in my Merry Christmas post, that I'm going to be an aunt, but that's not all that my sister had for us.  No, in a two week span, she found out she was pregnant ( a feat she was explicitly told would not happen), she also bought a house and got engaged!  Now they want to have the wedding in their new house - SEVEN WEEKS FROM NOW! So yeah...we've got some work to do!  Now my sister-in-law, who I mentioned a while back is in a relationship, is heading into marriage and possibly as early as June - no ring yet, but we ALL know it's coming.  So I'll finish weddiing planning for one and be warmed up to help the other! *heart*

So this is really all such super and exciting news and truly I couldn't be happier for either of them!!!  I see a lot of good for the people around me in 2011 - so many people have such a positive attitude for this year and it's only just begun and I'm not just talking those around me.  Take a look around blog land and you'll see what I mean.  2010 was a tough year for many people and there is much positive energy surrounding this fresh year - so let's keep it going!

I know this post is long and it has deviated from my regular posts, you know the ones saturated in pictures, but if you go back over the last year you'll see that this is how I used to post, more writing and less pictures.  I'm like that, constantly changing things up - but still the same person at heart - keeps things interesting....hopefully! 

I've mentioned numerous times about plans that God has for us and never really elaborated and mostly it is because Dave and I have thought many times we knew where God was leading and well we weren't exactly right...so I try not to say too much until we know better.  So we are searching out the Lord and His plans for us - we think we know what He wants but it's kinda scary and I'm not sure because there is so much going on around us that says different to what we feel His plans are.....does that even make any sense....  So I celebrate the new year with anticipation and bated breath, waiting on the Lord and taking everything day by day.

I have plans, ideas, hopes and goals - like anyone else I put expectations on myself for the new year - I just don't make them resolutions per say.  I am eager to see what God has in store for my family and I this year - heck, this week even - because three weeks ago I wasn't going to be a maid of honour or an aunt - so really who knows where each week could go.

One of my plans it that I hope to bring more to my blog for you all - more in depth Homemaker ideas and encouragement.  I'd love to hear more from my readers, let me know what you're looking for or what you like or don't like that I already do/don't do.  I hope to take my original plans for the webzine and incorporate them here, making this a place and resource for other Homemakers.

So here's to all that is new and exciting and here's to all that is old and comfortable.  Here's to the future....one day at a time....


  1. Great post. I am excited for this year - 2011. More so than I've ever been in years past. I am happy. I am content. I will wait to see what God has instore for us. He is good. In all things. He is good. I am thankful for his grace everyday.

    Happy B-day Blogging! Time sure does fly by! I can't believe how long I've been blogging! I certainly have learned ALOT about myself!

  2. Cheers to another year of blogging! Good to read a longer post from you. :)

  3. As always, I enjoyed this post. And although I love your pix, I told you once when you had the magazine up that you are developing into a very talented writer as well. Keep up both. We pray for you guys always and I know God has great plans for you. Can't wait to see....

  4. You are extremely talented at writing! I love stopping by your little corner of the web. Always brings a smile to my face....I wrote for a webzine for a while, too...it is time consuming to run one!

    So excited for 2011, I'm praying it's one where I'm even more aware of His goodness. In all forms.


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
