Emerging from the shell

Welcome to One Christian Chick.  Several years ago I created the name with the expectation of being one christian chick who could help change the world.  I did some blogging, but never fully embraced the opportunity and responsibility of sharing my life’s journey’s to aid you in yours.  I was spread too thin being a mother to a toddler, and trying to run a business from home.  So, the blog fizzled out.  Actually, to be truthful, I fell in a pit. A deep, muddy pit.  So, rather than digging out, I did like Beth Moore commented.  I got in that pit and decorated it.  I made it pretty, and tried to make it smell good so I could just stay there!  Yep…sassy, frustrated, fruitless momma, in her pretty pit.

My husband, being the smart cookie that he is, decided to keep the domain name while I was doing my stent in the pretty pit.  “You just never know when you might want to use it again.”  He was right! Shhhhhhhh…don’t tell him he was right.  It will go to his head!

After several years, I got tired of the pretty pit.  I think the Lord got tired of watching me contently live in my pit.  So, He picked me up, dusted me off, and pushed me forward.  Then, I tried to fall back in.  He caught me.  I stepped in cow patties.  He provided new shoes.  I got dents in my bumpers.  He told me to use them as reminders of where I’d been.

Years later, I come to you as the mother of a teenage boy.  A tired, older, more experienced mother of a teenage boy.   Yep, I have silver strands of glitter growing out of my head from all of our awesome journeys!  Everyone loves glitter right?  I’ve  seen my share of the wilderness, and a few mountain tops.  All along the way, God has been leading me to this place.

So, let’s dust off the old keyboard, straighten up the blog, and jump into God’s word!  Yep!  His word is the only thing that has gotten me to this point…well, His word and coffee!  Lots of coffee.  Oh…and cookies!  God’s word, and coffee, and cookies, and…well, you get the point.
