(FMF Friday) Celebrate…My First Post!

Wow! I can’t believe it. I’m actually giving a blog a shot. I sat with Christy this week and she walked me through the process of getting one going. What better way to start than with ‘celebrate’ as the FMF Friday prompt? Today I am absolutely celebrating the fact that I have encouragers cheering me on from the sidelines as I try my hand at this. I celebrate the fact that I was welcomed into the Five Minute Friday Twitter party so readily – even though I am a ‘poser’ and not at all a real writer. I celebrate that I am making new friends through this community and that I actually got to meet sweet Christy (@homeskoolmomcr) when she came home to Knoxville this week to help her dad after surgery.  I celebrate that God that is giving me the courage to let folks in after being so down for so long after my son’s death.

Speaking of God – I celebrate that He made the biggest sacrifice and gave His only Son to take my place on the cross. I celebrate that on the third day after He died He rose again. And oh how I celebrate that the same power that rose Him up from the grave is the very same power that will raise us all up when it’s time to be called home to Heaven!

STOP

P.S. I actually took a little longer than five minutes to do this. Gimme a break y’all…it’s my first time! 😛

  1. Welcome to the blogging world. Christy and I have been blogging friends for a while. We have home schooling in common. I just graduated my last one, so I am turning to a new subject … my childhood growing up on a dairy farm. “Raised in a barn” !
    I heard you would be joining us today! Good job. I can barely get started in five minutes. So don’t feel bad. I have a blog on wordpress, but my FMF post is at http://www.thefarmersplace.com.

  5. Fact: I go over five minutes almost every week. Whoops. Ok not by much, but still! Haha.
    Love this post, Lynette! (sorry I just got around to commenting!). And you are a ‘real’ writer- everyone can be a writer. The secret to being a writer? Write! And write some more. That’s all it takes, my friend. 🙂 Happy to have you joining us!

  6. Therein lies the challenge…keeping it up. I seem to stay so busy reading everybody else that I don’t think all that much about writing my own stuff. That and the fact that I’m not very blog setup-savvy. Thanks for reading.
