Hello my friends and welcome to my blog, Of Moose and Munchkins! I have been contemplating starting a blog for some time now and have decided to jump in and just do it! I hope you’ll enjoy coming along on this journey through my life and that you’ll find something here to help, encourage, or inspire you.
The purpose of this blog is to give me an outlet for writing. Growing up my mom had us write in journals as part of our schooling and it has stuck with me into my adulthood. While I don’t keep my journal up as much as I would like to, it is one of those things that I find myself drawn to when I have a quiet moment.
If you were to peak into our home on an early morning before my two adorable boys wake up, you would likely find me at my dining room table with my journal and pen in hand. It is these moments of the day that I treasure greatly and look forward to immensely.
I recently filled up the pages of my journal and pulled a new one out of my collection. I thought I’d share an excerpt from my first entry:
“The pages of this book stretch out before me like the days of my life – blank, unencumbered, not even sweetened yet with joy. It reminds me that I have no control, no ability to dictate the tales that will eventually fill these pages. But that drives me to remembrance of the One who is in control – the One who holds me in the palm of His hand. And I am comforted.”
Do you enjoy keeping a journal? Or what other way have you found to sort through life’s issues and record its joys? I’d love to hear! Leave me a comment!
