Lazy Days of Summer

Well, it is almost the "unofficial" end of summer. Labor Day is upon us. School is back in full swing and football season is underway. Where does the time go? The summers seem to get shorter and shorter! I went in Cracker Barrel last weekend and they already had their Christmas stuff out!!! You can't enjoy one season, holiday, or event before you are being bombarded with merchandise for the next. We live such a fast-paced life now-a-days that I have to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the "moments". There will be plenty of time to prepare for Christmas. Today was about "summer". Lord, help me slow down and enjoy the "moments" that all add up to "life".

New Blogger

Well, here first blog! I am new to the world of blogging. There are several blogs that I like to read. . . some for entertainment, some for inspiration, and some "just because". What possessed me to start one of my own is still a mystery to me! (Most definitely NOT to inspire!) Maybe God is trying to get me out of my comfort zone. I am what you would call a very private person - not an "out there" person. I try very hard to blend into the background and not be noticed. I was the kid who would go home from school not having a clue about what the teacher was talking about because if I raised my hand to ask a question, somebody might look at me! :) Yeah, it's that bad! I guess I am hoping that this "blogging thing" will give me an outlet and help me open up a little bit. If nothing else, it can be therapy for me.
