On Monday, I plan to start the Blogging 201 Challenge; however, I just recently started blogging and haven’t completed the 101. I guess I’m a little fanatical of doing things in order; so, I thought I would start at the beginning and work forward until Monday. I may end up overlapping the two challenges a little, but maybe that will be okay in the eyes of the reader as you will learn more about me over a short period of time. I hope you will find this interesting and intriguing and not find it boring or an overload of information…
So, who am I and why am I here?
I am a wife, a mom and a woman of faith. I relish in the essence of truth, honesty and authenticity. I love the antiquity of life and the refreshing surprise of tomorrow. I am passionate about my family, my standards and my God. I absolutely love the mountains, waterfalls, trees and all things nature; however, I also enjoy going to plays, fancy restaurants and shopping in the city. I thrive on spending time with my husband and our boys. I’d rather be with them any day than be with any celebrity or wealthy person in the world. I guess, you could call me a little eclectic for I have an appreciation of all things antique as well as brand new. I can be touched by the oldest Hymn and “jam out” with my son listening to the newest rap artist. I suppose, you’d say I’m an introverted introvert but maybe with a little surprise hidden within, for I thrive on solitude and quiet moments; yet, my husband often calls me a “social butterfly,” because if there’s activities going on, I don’t want to miss out! I delight in the smallest of things and, often times, look at things from that very angle. I have quirks and dislikes probably much like the next person; however, I cannot stand for fabricated lies, contrived sweetness or fictitious honesty. I love to see strength in humility, courage in timidity, and boldness in righteous indignation. I admire realism, gentleness, honor, mercy and gracious love.
This blog is just my way of sharing with you a little about my journey of adventures. I have always had a passion for journaling; my bedroom shelves are lined with a huge assortment of journals from years gone past. I decided to begin this blog to hopefully make an impact on those who follow me. As I start sharing these words penned on this (“cyber”) paper, my prayer is, whether it be as a word of encouragement, exhortation, or just a simple thought of, “I’m not alone in this journey,” that God will somehow take these simple notes, “mill” them through His refining fire, and bring about His glory; thus, the reason for my calling this The Grizzle Grist. I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
