Hello Again

After a long time away from blogging I have decided to give it a try again. Before I began though I did some hard thinking about what kind of atmosphere I wanted to create here at Walking Faithfully.

I decided I want it to be a warm, loving and encouraging place to come to. I don't want to spend a lot of time on analyzing or discussing the state of affairs in the world, unless, of course, it is in the course of bringing encouragement and glorifying God. There are plenty of blogs out there that do that sort of thing and do it in a much better way than I ever can. I tend to just get up on a soap box and rant. That is not very warm, loving or encouraging.

Like any place one has been away from for awhile a little dusting and sweeping are required in order to get things liveable again. That's what I've been doing here today. I uploaded a new background and header (which were fun to find and make!) and deleted some old posts that were not in keeping with my new direction in blogging.

I also don't intend to spend a lot of time on the blogging thing. I mainly want to write. I have been in dire need of a creative outlet. At my current season in life I don't really have the time or energy to drag out sewing projects, crocheting projects or any other project for that matter. Blogging is one of those things I can do that does not create a mess or take up space that I will need later so that we can have dinner at the table.

I am also still homeschooling our two children. Legoman, our 15 soon to be 16 year old son, is now in high school and keeping up with his education is a bit of a challenge for me. I also probably worry a little about how well we are doing in covering all the bases for him, yet at the same time I know we will get there and have a sense of accomplishment for a job well done.

Sweetpea, our 10 year old, is an amazing joy! She genuinely loves to learn. She doesn't always love the tasks it may involve but she loves learning! She especially loves her science. We are currently doing Apologia's Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology. Today she made a model of her blood using Karo Syrup, Red Hots, sprinkles and one white Jelly Belly. Our little two year old friend came over today, saw the canning jar full of sugary goodness(?) and wanted to eat it. All I could say to him was, "Yucky!"

'Cuz I'm sure it is...yucky I mean.

We also have some amazing and wonderful things coming up for our family that I hope to share in the not to distant future. For now though they will have to remain a mystery to you dear reader. But if you do think of me and feel led I would surely appreciate your prayers on our family's behalf.

So that is my "hello again". I hope you will come and visit again. Please comment and let me know you stopped by!
