I created this blog about 4 years ago and never posted to it; I started posting to a blog on myfitnesspal.com when I began my healthy living journey back in January. But after my friend Cara mentioned that she had been thinking of beginning a blog my interest and passion for writing was sparked again. (Thanks Cara, es)
At first I had no clue what to write about. Yeah I could blog about my weight loss journey, but all my passion is not for weight loss; it goes much deeper than that!I live a crazy busy life, yet so boring and mundane to many. I have a beautiful family; I'm married to the love of my life and we have a daughter and a son together. We both work full time and like most families with two working parents, someone else gets the pleasure of keeping our kids while we work.
Also like other working families, we run high in the laundry department and low in the sleep department! And then you know, there are the other challenges: ear infections, financial worries, the economy and gas prices, kids being mean to our kids, balancing friends into our already busy and crammed life, and keeping up the romance and passion in our marriage.
With all of that being said, that is where I came up with the title to this blog: Seeking Peace in a Storm. My life is a storm; but so is yours I'm sure. We all have so much that we have to fight through; if we let it consume us, we will never have Peace. The Prince of Peace is who I live to seek each and every day. I don't seek Him perfectly either; I don't always have quiet time or a long prayer time. Sometimes the only "time" I have to just myself and the Lord is when I'm in the restroom! But even in the restroom, I'm seeking Him none-the-less.
I heard this song today for the first time and wow, it is exactly me and probably you too and really hits the spot on what reason I have for this blog. Hope you enjoy.
