It's Official...I'm a Blogger

Hello All!

So, I official blogger. I’m hoping to include a bit of everything on here: updates on my family, decorating, craft projects, recipes, some random thoughts of mine and most importantly some challenges to both you and I to MAKE IT MATTER!! “Umm…make what matter?” – you are probably wondering. To make LIFE matter! It’s so easy to get caught up in life and routines that we forget to make the most of our everyday moments and opportunities to help and encourage others. God has put you where you are right this moment for a reason and we should make the most of it. Challenge yourself today to make a difference in the way you talk to your children, your spouse or your friends. Go out of your way to do something nice for someone today – even if it’s a stranger! Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you did…I LOVE the comments!

Below are the lyrics to “Make it Matter” by Natalie Grant. This song really speaks to me and its what I hope to convey to you throughout this blog.

"Make It Matter"

Pack my bags and my regrets
Every second that I've wasted
Chasing after
My pursuit of happiness
Has only left me searching
There must be more

Take my life and lift me up to the sky
Take my dreams and help me to fly
On the wings of possibility
Come rewrite my history
Till its only You I'm chasing after
Take this life and MAKE IT MATTER

Help me give more than I take
Let me see into somebody else's heartache
And be the difference love can make
My heart is finally finding
That there is more

Only one life to live
Only one love to give
Only one life, only one love
So make it, make it matter

I hope this blog can bring a smile to your face, make you laugh and encourage you. Be sure to “Follow Me”, and stay tuned….I’ve got some plans for this baby.
