Thoughts on Blogging

I initially started this blog to write and learn about my husband’s interest in racing. I tried to combine this with our venture into gluten-free eating, and ended up realizing I just like to write devotionals that connect Scripture to real life. I tried to throw in some photography and marriage advice along the way, and now I’m wondering if I should start an aquarium category as our interests shift and grow. This menagerie sometimes inhibits my writing because I don’t know what the focus of this blog is supposed to be other than Christ. But this conglomeration a problem?

Any blog you read about blogging will tell you that you should find your niche and write about just that. But if your life is all in one niche (just aquariums, just photography, just racing, just being married), that is pretty mundane.

I’m a collector of ideas and facts. One of the things I love about Kris is his spontaneity and passion about everything! How do I pack all this exciting stuff into one blog?

On the other hand, it’s okay if life and relationships are mundane sometimes – my Luke Bible study coordinator pointed this out. Sometimes our quiet time with God will be unspectacular, but relationships are built on the everyday (doing the dishes, going grocery shopping, pumping gas, doing paperwork). This regularity is actually a good thing!

The message at our church this week was about how when we choose to follow Christ, we are walking with an unstoppable God.  Yes!

God made the fish and invented the physics of racing, the chemistry of nutrition, the institution of marriage, and the beauty surrounding us. I guess HE truly is the connecting part of this blog and my life.

“Holy Spirit come” are the words I whisper when I wake in the mornings, and then we start the adventure of each day.

But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior” – Titus 3:4-6
