I've never been around for the birth of a blog; is it customary to spend the first post justifying the decision to start one? I could ramble for paragraphs explaining the lead-up to this very moment – my first ever blog post! – but I’ll leave it at this: I have a squillion questions I’m looking for answers to. Questions like:
What does God think of women? How do you make bread, and is it worth the effort? What makes a marriage work? Is swearing wrong for a Christian? Does God love my husband more than He loves me? Why does the Bible make me feel that way sometimes? Do I really want to buy a house one day, and why? How many leg waxes will it take before the hairs just don’t grow back? Should I re-read the Twilight series or will that spoil it for me? Am I actually an introvert or did I just take the test at the wrong moment in my life? Why is it that some friendships die but others last a lifetime? Why do I feel so guilty deleting Oxford commas from my writing? Do I need to be consistent in my removal of them, or can I make judgements sentence-to-sentence? Why are there so many people who claim to know exactly what the Bible’s saying, but who interpret it in a completely different way to another stack of people who also claim to know exactly what the Bible’s saying? Will I ever again know what it feels like to sleep for longer than 3 hours at a time? And what if the Hokey Pokey really is what it’s all about?
I’m hoping this will be a good forum for all the pondering.
