I gave myself a quick facelift today...the blog that is...still not loving it, but I was wanting to simplify it so it will work for now.
You may also notice that I finally settled on the name Becoming Paige for my blog. Thanks so much to everyone who voted...this was the overwhelming favorite, although Angie Neal's combination of my ideas was also a favorite!
I've been thinking quite a bit about why I'm blogging and how I want to change things up - mostly, I'm blogging as a way get out my thoughts, journal my life, and occasionally share thoughts that might encourage or cause others to think. But I was needing some structure to help me be more diligent about writing...so decided I should narrow down what I really want to talk about in this venue.
On a recent road trip to Dallas with my mom we were discussing blogs and it was her idea to focus on ministry, mommyhood, missions, musings (my random thoughts) & to also throw in my crazy stories as I seem to make a fool of myself often (thus the mayhem)...I realized - these are the areas of life where I'm passionate (at least at this point in life)...and as I share about them perhaps I'll learn more about Becoming Me...Becoming Paige.
With that said, here are snippets about each of these areas:
I preached this weekend for Mother's Day about Sabbath - I was shocked how many people afterwards talked to me about how they needed permission to rest...I'll talk more on this some other time...but until then we should all go take a nap...
Oh, and I recommend The Rest of God by Mark Buchanan
I cannot believe how quickly my Sweet Selah is growing! She loves to smile and talk to me now-a-days...and today we had a photoshoot...
If you are in Lubbock you should come out. It is at The Cactus Theater - 7pm - Thursday, May 20th
Downtown Chic by Robert & Cortney Novogratz...and it has me thinking about finding a wreck of a house & completely renovating it. The only problem is that we are less than handy - I can paint...but otherwise Josh and I are a mess...thus - simply a musing...
Have I ever shared the story about accidentally mooning two full boats of highschool boys? Yep, not only did I moon them, but once I realized that they were there I actually began running with my pants down...thus making the incident 100x worse...there is far more to this story - but I was thinking about it yesterday as we talked about going water rafting with our young adults...
Until next time...
