And so it begins…

I’ve been thinking of starting a blog for quite some time.  I just couldn’t think of a way to justify it.  Why should I blog?  What would I say?  What could I say?  Would anyone care?  Then I decided that I do have something to say.  I have family literally on the other side of the world.  At the moment, my sister and her family live in Panama, my brother and his family live in Vanuatu, and my son is serving our country in Afghanistan.  This can be a great way to keep them updated about all that happens in our lives.

So, here goes.  I titled this blog, “My Flourishing Family” because my favorite verse in the Bible is Psalm 92:12, “The righteous will flourish like a palm tree.”  No, we’re not perfect, but we strive to live our lives in such a way that our Lord will be glorified and in return, we will flourish.

There you have it.

And here we go!
