At Crossroads, I have been participating in a journey to discover who God says I am. The I am ____ journey can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. For me, the overall message, spurred by a Beth Moore study I am also doing, is this: I am ENTRUSTED. This has been scary. I have been keeping this blog for quite some time now, on and off for many years, actually, but I haven’t taken the step to advertise it. First and foremost, I am worried about the backlash. I am worried what advertising my spiritual thoughts about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit might do to my friendships, or even open me up to some ridicule from family and friends. Those who know the “Facebook me,” have encouraged me to write a book or a blog about my kids’ antics and the day-in-the-life of the Vernons. That’s all funny, it really is, but there is a lot more to me, to us, than the funny stuff. On a daily basis, my kids teach me about God’s love, about endurance, about patience, about faith and about purpose. They do this in their seriousness, craziness, and funniness. They are smarter than me on this daily walk, which makes them an inspiration to me and maybe perhaps others.
So, welcome to my journey!! Hang tight as I figure out the ins-and-outs of blogging, and sharing the funnies, the mysteries, and the miracles as God continues to show up in the lives of the Vernonsix with our sprinkles of ginger.
