Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

My blog

You know I was reading the blog that started this whole thing. This reminded me of why I started blogging. It wasn't for Thursday 13's, polls or anything like that. It was truly to share my random thoughts.

After reading his latest post, I feel like I have lost what I wanted to do, if that makes sense. I really am not as superficial as my posts or lists may imply. I am much more than that and I don't share it often. I think that I do not share my opinions of views because I am afraid of responses. Anyone who knows me knows that I do not like conflict. In fact, I am a professional avoider of all conflict. It is my specialty.

So, who am I? I think that's a good question. I really am more than just a wife or a pediatric nurse or a sister or a daughter or future mom (on that note, huge announcement on adoption blog, click here). I am child of God. I was put on this earth for a purpose, more than just the purpose of breathing and doing day to day things. I want a passion. I need a passion. There are many bloggers who support environmental things, causes in other countries which I think is awesome. I want something I can learn more about, something that will inspire to make a change. I think the problem I have is the same problem I have after a retreat. You are mentally ready to make a change, you are hyped up and then it does not last. I don't want that to happen but its happened too many times.

So, I am going to try to write more things about me, what I believe in, what I stand for, what I am passionate for. Sometimes, these will be quite serious, sometimes they will not. This I can not help.

There are many believers in Christ who blog. There are many people who post that this is the opposite of what they believe in.

Until tomorrow.

Amy

Well, I'll certainly check this blog out more often to see what you have to say about your faith!

You are right. I know God puts things on me that I care about but I'mnot really doing anything about it.

I've noticed that my own blog has gone through "seasons" of sorts. You know those times when I am totally focused on my walk with Christ...then other times when it's trivial lists and memes and stuff.

I know that one of the joys of blogging is finding out more about yourself through the record of thoughts. I pray that God reveals more and more to you each and everytime you jot down your thoughts and feelings.

Blessings to you!!

I think it is natural that your writing will change ... and a good thing for you (anyone) to take a step back and see if you are still doing what you set out to do. Staying with the mission, as it were.

Ah, I know what you mean. When I first started blogging, it was all serious topics about my struggles and growths in my relationship with God. Those posts are few and far between lately. I just don't know what to write most days.

I hope you find a good place you can settle in with your blog. :)

God bless.

I'm still not quite caught up with all of the reading I miss by not getting online everyday. :( I do have to say that your TT made me actually tear up in a few places! I LOVED it! Some of my favorite movies there!

As for your blog and writing...I actually have been thinking a lot of the same things. It's nice to do a TT sometimes ~ but a lot of the time I don't feel like it really gives me the chance to talk about my own thoughts. I agree ~ and can't wait to read more about Amy! (oh, btw, I avoid conflict at all costs, too...almost to the point where it causes problems!)
