The First Cut

It is a rather daunting task to tackle the first post in my newly created blog. What to say...how to say it...what if I find out I don't have anything to say? What if, as I attempt to put my thoughts, feelings and ideas into mere words on a page, I discover I don't know them myself? The first page, the first words, the first cut of the fabric (to use a quilting example) seems to be the most difficult. But once done, it becomes easier to do the second, then the third. Before long, the hesitation and struggle are long forgotten as the new problem of when and where to pause becomes the issue.
This is the story of me. As a wife, as a mother, as a follower of Jesus, as a person. This is the story of REAL LIFE...

Liz,
Welcome to the blog world. Already I can tell that your writing abilities far surpass mine. Be sure that I will be reading often and I'll make sure to spread the news to others as well.

Wow. Even "Liz" is blogging. I better start cranking something out now too.

It'll be great to track your lives as both of you are now blogging. Chris puts out about 4 posts a day, so you have your work cut out for you!

We have plenty of room down here in Cape Coral if you guys would like to bring the family for a visit.

Steve and April

Elizabeth,
This is great. Really enjoyed the read. Keep writing. You should think of writing a book. With 4 children and the wife of pastor Chris, you should have plenty to write about.
