First blog post on my new blog :)

Hello and welcome to my new blog. I am hoping my friends who read my old blog will enjoy my new blog.

First let me tell you all that I want you to understand that I am a Bible Believing Christian and that this is a Christ centered blog. Anyone can read my blog but I just wanted to say that right up front. Am I a perfect Christian NO, Do I do wrong things sometimes YES, Does Jesus forgive me and give me  a new day every day YES.

I do not post comments from annonymous people, if you want to leave a comment at least be brave enough to leave your name.

The intent of this blog is I want a place to write my feelings out, share parts of my day, share my family and to make some great blog friends. I will also include my thoughts on things and my own opinion. You may not agree with me on some things but thats okay everyone is entitled to their own opinions on things. I will also share my adventures of homekeeping, yes I said adventures as this is how I look at it, every day is a new adventure. I am big on making a list and have a modified Home Keeper Binder, mine is different than most because I have no children at home and I don't homeschool. I love to make lists, but have the darndest time following them. If I actually did everything on my list everyday my home would be like  a spotless home.

My husband works very had and also has a very hard and long commute each and every day. We get up at 5am and he usually comes home somewhere between 6-7pm that is a very long day and I appreciate his doing that so very much. I want him to come home to a clean and cozy home that is a place of rest for him, to a nice meal every night....do I accomplish this everyday??NO but I usually try my best.

I have many things to work on in my life, I try hard to live as Christ but always continually fall short and have to pick myself up and try again. Thankfully I have a loving forgiving Lord who knows this all too well but he loves me anyway.

Just a minute ago my dear friend DeNiece called on my cell phone and I was in here and didn't get to it in time, so sorry DeNiece, thanks for thinking of me and I will try and call you tomorrow after I get back from getting my van fixed. She has a blog over at here she is a wonderful woman and the best friend a person can have.

Well I didn't mean to write a whole book for my first post, just wanted to thank anyone who comes and reads it, I hope it will be entertaining for you.

Blessings,JoAnn

Absolutely love how you phrased this:

"Do I do wrong things sometimes YES, Does Jesus forgive me and give me a new day every day YES."

I too love the phrase above that Jenny talked about. Thanks for the comment about me being a wonderful friend. It is not hard to be a wonderful friend to you because you to are a wonderful and kind heart woman also. Thanks for calling me back and being concerned about the well being of my family during Hurricane Irene, I will call you as soon as the power is back on, I am on my lap top at the moment trying to get a few things done.
