Clean Slate, New Beginning, Fresh Start, New Year, New School Year, a New Day... All opportunities to begin anew... start over.... make things right. A favorite verse of mine is... " Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22, 23. The beloved hymn "Great is Thy Faithfulness" is also a favorite of mine and comes to mind quite often. In December of 2007, I became acquainted with the blog "Money Saving Mom" and my desire to start a blogspot began to take root. I wrestled over a name to call my blogspot there were so many great ones that were out there, I thought I would never be able to come up with a catchy name or know what to put on my blog page. I would push away at the desire but it kept resurfacing. I also wrestled with what would I write about... I don't see myself as a person who excels at anything wonderful that anyone would be of interest. I am an eccleptic kind of person, I have many interest and none I do well. But... that aside I still wanted to delve into the blogging world. So here is my first step into blogworld... it won't be as defining as the first step on the moon, or the famous storm on Normandy, but for me it is a big defining moment. I hope to share money saving tidbits and websites, recipes, stories from my zoo-like life and have an avenue to share my thoughts that I am learning in God's classroom that starts fresh every day.
