Blog Party!!

This is my first blog party!! I must say, this is all new to me. I have several emotions of excitment and being darn right scared. LOL
I decied to have a blog because it looked like fun and I like reading them. Then it became a place to start learning to put my thoughts out like journaling. I didn't realize how out of practice I am on spelling and grammar! I would like to blame it on typo's ...I am sure sometimes that happens but, not all the time. My family has been going through a rough time and by blogging this has helped me get out some of my feelings and not keep them bottled up. Also, has helped my family through others praying for us. My blog is about my life and my family. I also want to use the blog as a tool to reach out to others to help us get closer to God. I have started reading other blogs who use their devotion and thoughts to minister to people. They have ministered to me and I would like to do the same. However, this is new to me. I have mostly posted on my thoughts and problems and not on insights or devotions. I am praying for God to direct me on how to better use this and hopefully inspire someone to draw closer to HIM.
Happy Blog Party!!!

I am having trouble leaving a comment. Why does it keep asking to write the characters I see. Maybe my keyboard is a not compatible.

Great blog. I couldn't tell that you're a first timer. I couldn't even figure out how to get that cute little party logo on my site. I'm getting educated & made over and will look better soon.
Great to meet you & come back soon!
