Once upon a time,
there was a teacher-turned-stay-at-home-mommy-turned-teacher-turned stay-at-home-mommy
(who’s now a teacher again—but that’s not important to this story.)
After a while, this teacher/SAHM/whatever decides to jump into the fray at Blogger.
She searches her brain for a catchy title.
So she searches her soul this time, looking for the lens through which she’ll view the world,
and it will view her.
What’s the one thing, the one thing
that she’d tell the world,
that would make her words matter at all?
“One thing I ask of the Lord,
this is what I seek,
simply to dwell in the house of the Lord
all my days,
and to gaze upon His beauty and to seek Him in His temple.”
Over a year into blogging, this person found the little button on Blogger called “stats.”
(Not techie or particularly curious, this person, apparently.)
She discovered people actually do read her blog, even if they are mostly silent.
They seem to read the posts
where pain and life and God intersect.
Messy life+Jesus=God’s Glory
She will never understand how that works.
She will never have 2346 followers and 27 comments,
but maybe, just maybe,
Christ will guide her fingers on the keys,
and someone will seek and dwell and gaze
at the feet of her Beautiful Savior.
Be blessed today,
