It's hard to know where to start really as the first post of a new blog is always daunting, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to introduce myself before I make a start on the proper content. I am a young women in my late 20's, living in the Midlands (in England); I am married and a mum to two wonderful children; one of which has recently started school, and the other is about to embark on preschool.
My husband and I met whilst at school, and we have recently celebrated 5 years of marital bliss; my husband is the most amazing and kind man that I have ever met; I am very fortunate that he is incredibly supportive of all that I do. He is also a fellow Christian.
What is the significance of a rainbow you may ask, well I believe that a rainbow is given to us by God; it says in the bible - "The rainbow that I have put in the sky will be my sign to you and to every living creature on earth. It will remind you that I will keep this promise forever". God promises through the rainbow that he will never leave or forsake us. A rainbow is powerful metaphor, it is a very wonderful and positive thing that comes after a very dark storm. I have recently made a concious decision to start living life by focusing on the positives and counting my blessings, rather than dwelling on the dark times that we all face.I know that whatever life may throw at me, God will always be with me.
I have a passion within that wants to help people, whether that be supporting them in difficult times or sharing in their joys. Life does have it's ups and down, but I feel privileged that I am able to share life and encourage other people on their own journey.
I became a Christian in my 20's, you can read my testimony of how I came to faith here, and for many years I've sensed God calling me to step up and do more for him, but in the past I felt so overwhelmed and scared that I chose to ignore this calling.
Well here we are in 2014 and I'm not going to ignore Gods call anymore! I'm excited to see what He has in store for me and my family. The journey will no doubt have it's ups and it's downs, but I hope you enjoy reading my journal as I share my life on this blog.
If you feel a connection to this blog, feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from you. I am also very happy to accept prayer requests for any situations or circumstances that you wish me to pray about, and can assure you that I will keep our conversations in the strictest of confidence; so feel free to pop me an email.
Sending lots of love and blessings x
