Well, here I am. I haven't visited this blog in a couple of years. But, blogging doesn't seem like such a bad idea. I mean, I've always enjoyed writing, and, hey, sometimes I like writing my thoughts down. I have a few reasons why I'm starting this blog. So, let's get into them...
1) The title of my blog does have a special significance. It has to do with my faith. It's crazy to think that all the time we spend getting our lives in order is only the span of the snap of a finger compared to eternity. It's kind of a scary thought considering I've put a lot of effort and thought into the life I have now. But this journey only lasts a lifetime, whereas the journey that awaits is much, much, much longer. Longer than I can even wrap my little human mind around. So, part of this blog will be a testament to my faith and the daily struggles I encounter.
2) The picture on my blog is of very special significance. I love the "Footprints in the Sand" poem. It has brought me comfort over the years, so I thought it appropriate. After each post I want to end with a bible verse that has been weighing on my heart. They are always good to have, and always a source of learning.
3) This blog is going to be a place where I share some of my experiences. College is an entire new experience on its own, and the amazing people I meet have had quite an influence in my life so far. They deserve to know that they have impacted my life.
4). Mainly, this blog is just a place where I can vent, share some revelations, and just document some of my greatest experiences. I mean, college only lasts so long, right? Why not get started now. I'm in a new state, growing in my faith, and my whole lifelong career awaits me.
So, welcome to my blog. You will learn more about me as my posts grow. There is always more to learn about someone even if you feel you know them well enough. Remember, this is the shortest journey of all.
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
