Welcome to My Living Canvas

Hi. I’m glad you found me.  A little about me…  Christ follower, wife, daughter, volunteer, missionary, employee, southerner, world traveler, music lover, cook, reader, writer, passionate, creative, loud, shy, visionary, idealist, silly, serious, sinfully reckless, wounded, humble, miraculously redeemed,  seeking open roads, the silver lining, and the opportunity of a lifetime.

Like the rest of the blogging world, I have dreamed of being a writer since my chubby fingers  held a jumbo number 2 and scribbled second grade dreams on gray tablet paper.

My confession… Decades later, I’m still too big of a chicken to do anything about this dream.

That is… until now.

I built this blog to serve as home to my years of journal entries that have sat in a box under my bed, safe from curious eyes and judgments from a world that doesn’t get it.  Well World, I decided to give you a chance and see if you actually like any of this.  Maybe you will. Maybe we have more in common than I thought.  Or, maybe I’ll regret ever logging on to wordpress.com.  In any event, I will at least have the satisfaction of trying.

Praise God for the enabling of technology.

So here goes…  If you like stories of  mystery, adventure, self-discovery, travel, harmonies and minor keys, you may very well digg this blog.  I can’t promise you any answers, but I can promise you the truth about my living canvas, life as I know it …

    I can’t believe you did all of this!
    It is excellent-yes! (;-)
    You have really developed as a writer. Very professional. It must be hard to bare your soul like that. I know when I paint I don’t really feel comfortable showing my work. (What if someone is critical?)
    Well I am very proud of you. However, I must say that you have never had “chubby fingers”.
    You should write about your cute ears!
    Love the ears!! (-o
