It's been almost a year now since God spoke to me and encouraged me to start telling my story on a blog. If I could use one word to describe what this last year has been like I would say....... ADVENTURE!
1. an exciting or very unusual experience.
2. participation in exciting undertakings or enterprises: the spirit of adventure. 
3. a bold, usually risky undertaking; hazardous action of uncertain outcome.

I didn't know I was going on an adventure but that's where I've been and my husband tells me that's what makes a story. So here I am. It's a new year, a new day, a new beginning.

If you've been following my blog it's probably been pretty easy. I discovered that I don't do blog posts when I'm on an adventure. Now I'm hoping for a season of quietness so I can recount the adventure God has written on my life.

He's given me a story to tell and it looks a lot like a mountain that needs to be moved.

My approach for moving this mountain.
1. Pray to God for his will to be done, and for faith.
2. One step at a time.......

He replied, “...Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
 Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—
    those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, Psalm 107:2

False Start

I have a plaque I keep in my home which reads. "If You Can't Be A Good Example You'll just have to serve as a horrible warning!" by, Catherine Aird 
I laughed when I saw it and knew I had to have it. It's been the story of my life.
I wish I could write in this blog about all of the mess ups I've been through and how God pulled me out of them.....OH WAIT!!! I am doing that! I wish I could sit here today and say it's all good, my problems are in the past. 
The truth is as long as I'm on planet earth
