...than the Road that Leads to Heaven!

I can't believe it, but I am actually starting a blog. I'm not sure what led me to this. Part of me would like to blame the fact that Facebook has been blocked at work for several months now; while the other part of me is slowly starting to face the fact that there are not enough minutes in my day to put a pen to a piece of paper and actually journal, the old fashioned way. (I journalled for 10 consecutive years up until last year when I got a full time job.)

I'm not quite sure where online journaling is going to take me. Most of those who know me would probably be shocked to hear that I have started a blog...which may mean that it will take a while for me to tell any of my friends! I have always been a very private person; rarely speaking about myself except to extremely close friends. The only reason for this is not because I am hiding some deep, dark life; rather I love listening to other people and their much more interesting lives!

I hope that this blog becomes an instrument of the Holy Spirit. Check out the blogs listed under "My Inspirations" that are instruments. They have helped me so much-- Just reading them when I'm having a bad day lifts my spirits and enables me to do whatever it is that I am called to do for that day. And as everything else in my life; this is dedicated to Jesus through Mary.

Hey Emily, thanks for linking to our Culture Watch blog and referring Jenny to us (who also added us to her blogroll). I feel a real kinship with folks like you who put up a link on their blogs and point others to us.

I'm curious to know how you found us in the first place, though.

Keep up the blogging. The hardest thing is disciplining yourself to keep writing. One of the good things is that you can add the My Blogs application to your Facebook page, and all your posts will show up on your Facebook, too. Kill two birds with one stone.

Blessings from the folks here at FamilyLife.
