My “why” is completely plagiarized from Charles Spurgeon’s predecessor, Rev. James Smith.
I stole it because it captured my heart and my desire for this blog so completely – I had to make it mine. And since he’s hangin’ in paradise with Jesus, I don’t think he’ll mind.
“It is the opinion of many, that books (or blogs) of this character cannot be too numerous, or be too widely circulated, as the taste, even of good men, is so very different. Besides which, every writer has his own circle, and every publisher his own connection, so that, where one will not circulate, another may. If the object is to lead sinners to the Saviour, and to bring believers into closer communion with Him, we may expect the Lord’s blessings and if the writer knows his own heart, this is the object in these pages.”
Daily Bible Readings for the Lord’s Household, James Smith, 1850
I started this blog and immediately broke the internet.
It was down all morning. I wonder if God was trying to tell me this wasn’t such a hot idea.
But here I go anyway…
I guess this is where I tell you about me. Let’s see. I love Jesus. I am a champion Connect Four player (old-school plastic of course, not digital). I took all the pictures on this site. I am also equal parts hoarder & minimalist, just not at the same time. My family rocks. And did I mention I love Jesus?
For now, this blog will be mostly anonymous. I’m afraid of the big-bad-internet-bullies. So I’m going by “Moi” – my moniker in grade school when Miss Piggy was my role model and I used a can of Aqua Net per day.
You can read my story and my heart for why I created this blog via the other top links. (I’ve also put it at the bottom here. I know how tiring all that extra clicking can be.)
Ultimately I’m writing simply to bless any who find themselves here with the blessings I have been given!
Feel free to give me a shout. I’d love to hear from ya!
