thanks Kelli!!!!

Kelli at Ponderings of a Pastor's Wife has passed this on to me. Thank you Kelli, it means so much to me. Having grown up in the glass house of a pastor's family, I so appreciate your authenticity and your passion for our Savior. It's not always easy to make the choice to be "real" but you do, and we are blessed by your obedience.

My purpose for blogging is simple. It's for my daughters, my nieces, my nephews, my grandchildren...I want them to be able to go through my "journals" and see what our life was like. To see that this thing called life is filled with ups and downs, twists and turns quite frankly, it's a wild ride. I want them to be able to look at our life and see obedience.

Plain and simple, we want them to look at our life and see the effect of allowing God to drive.

Chad and I never want our children or grandchildren to have some far fetched idea that we will always have an answer for them. OR, that we had life figured out early and that we never made mistakes. That would be a lie and not do them a bit of good!!!

As I think about who to pass this on to I immediately think Darla, and BethAnne. Girls, I am so encouraged by you and your friendship. Your love of our God excites me and I'm a better person for taking this journey with you.

uhhmmmm.....I would like to take this opportunity to thank Stephanie (aka Ocean Mommy) for this award. She is such an inspiration to me because she loves Jesus, she is the real deal and in general, I just think she rocks!

Thanks Stephanie!
