Blogging and Grandma

‘I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.’ Phillipians 3:14 (ESV)

We are working on the web site, soon (hopefully) publishing children’s books, and in the midst of all this- blogging. This is hilarious because I’m a math major, and also the Queen of Run-On-Sentences. Perhaps you’ve heard of me? … No?

But all this to say, we want to share our story and our children’s storybooks. I hope our blog will be encouraging. I hope you won’t take me too seriously. And I hope you will forgive my grammar. In the midst of my week I am thinking about you, thinking about this blog, and thinking about how I need to get to the store and buy more toilet paper. But hopefully you will find a new post every Tuesday and enjoy it.

I am realizing that if I only post about the books themselves, all our posts will be summed up as follows: ‘Still working on it, expect more soon.’ This book team is all detail people. Agonizingly focused on every detail. If we weren’t so alike, we might consider one another obnoxious. As it is, we like to tell ourselves that we will have all our ducks in a row, and that will make things easier in the long run.

But what to blog about?

Over the next few weeks, I’d like to share stories about someone who was very important to this writing team. My grandmother, Mabel. She liked to be called Mabes, and had an amazing impact on her family. She would have loved things like cell phones, and seeing her children and grandchildren working together. I thought that these next few blogs might give you a peek into what kind of a family this writing team is (though we are far from perfect- although you’ll have to take my word on that, because I’m only blogging on the positive stuff). There are things we value. We may not have obtained them, but we are reaching for them.

And with any luck it will be more interesting than ‘still working on it, expect more soon.’ Well, of course it will be… But that wasn’t quite what I was getting at.

Until next week then!

Many blessings to you, and God keep you!
