back to blogging

whelp, my friends... two months ago i deleted my blog. i had started right after my third child, Annabelle, was born, so that's about 8 1/2 years! it got to the point that i felt the pressure to keep up with things (which i couldn't) to provide something worthwhile for people reading (ya know, tips, tricks, experiences, and so on)... but in the last year of my blog i hardly wrote anything... scratch that, i hardly posted anything. i actually wrote quite a bit that i never published. some posts were because i wanted to fine tune them, but that required time and i don't really want to waste a lot of time blogging. others because they just across as venting out frustrations.

so two months later. here i am. starting a new one.

i've debated this in my mind. i'm not sure where it will lead this time. my hope is that it will be what the Lord wants it to be. i'm past the pressure of feeling like it needs to be like any other blog out there. sometimes i just need a place to get my thoughts down and out and processed. sometimes i need to share something the Lord is teaching me.

so i needed to pick a new title and decided on "the peacock pearl". i'd like to explain it... but it'll have to wait till another time...
