"Never judge a man until you've walked two moons in his
moccasins." –Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
I love stories. I love books. Perhaps it's the English major in me. From old dusty ones, to shiny new ones. I enjoy short and simple books so that reading is restful, but also books that help me to think deeply. Somehow, I find that restful too. I love movies. In order to win me over a movie usually has to include both humor and heart. I love TV series. Especially The New Girl, Big Bang Theory, and Duck Dynasty. Most of all I love getting to know people and learning about their stories.
I've got to say that God is by far the best author I've ever read. I mean, He did write the best seller or all time. Give it a read sometime. It’s got action, drama, advice, poetry, but mostly it’s a love story. A love story about a Creator who relentlessly pursues intimate relationship with his creation, and a creation who is plagued with the conflict of choosing between Him and the many other lovers they find along the way. I believe that God is writing a better story with my life. I believe that at this very moment he is inviting you into a better story. His stories usually include heartache (what would a good story be without a little conflict?). There are heroes and princesses. And no matter how dark things may seem at times, there is always, always a happy ending.
A pastor once challenged me to keep a journal so that I wouldn't forget all the things God does in my life. Think of this as my digital journal. I want to remember the pain so that the joy will taste even sweeter. I want to be able to look back and relish in the good times when no more are in sight. I want to have a detailed account of the ebb and flow of my marriage, my spiritual journey, my adventures. This is blog is the place where I keep record of those things.
While here, you can walk in my moccasins—read my stories. I hope that you will find the things I say at least entertaining, and possibly even inspiring. I would love to get to know you and to have a better understanding of your perspective even especially if it’s vastly different than mine. I think the world would be a better place if we all took time to walk in each others’ shoes. Thanks for taking the time to walk in mine.
