When God inspired me to start a blog, I feel He led me very precisely. You can read all about that in my first post, “Are You A Little Happy.” In a nutshell, I long to encourage other weary women through writing, and for fun, feature like-minded artists.
Like most right-brainers, I have the tendency to get lost in the periphery and lose sight of the central focus. Lately, I’ve been spending more time molding clay and washing paint brushes than penning my thoughts.
Although it’s been fun to play around with art, the baby may have eaten a bead or two, and definitely ate a few bites of paint. For now, I’m putting the art supplies back on the “hobby shelf,” so I can focus on the absolute thing God’s called me to: mothering (not poisoning) my children. And writing.
I honestly didn’t expect such a positive response to the blog, and it’s nice confirmation to a new writer. I also find joy in writing, unlike most who have bad flashbacks of college term papers at the mention of the word. A wise mentor once taught me when we feel God’s pleasure in our work, it’s assurance we are in His will.
So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to
find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures
are from the hand of God. Ecclesiastes 2:24
If you haven’t already, please tell a friend about A Little Happy. Building a site where women can be refreshed and encouraged by God’s truth is going to be an adventure. I have guest writers on standby and artists from around the country I’m tickled to feature.
Thank you for following my blog, I feel certain God has asked me to do this. Not to mention, writing is much less stressful than cleaning up spilled paint and mining beads from Ben’s diaper.
