more often than not, i really don't have a clue what i am doing. (some of you aren't surprised, i know) now, don't get me wrong, i am not selling myself short by confessing that to you, but it is true. everyday i seem to find myself in unchartered waters. maybe it's because i am a single mom of two teenage daughters. (that may just say it all!) maybe it's because i am dating again for the first time in 18 years (i know, right)!!! maybe it's because i work FULL time at a fast growing and one of the most exciting churches in our area (constantly taking me to a whole 'nother level!). maybe it's all of the above. but still, everyday finds me a new challenge, a new adventure, a new attitude, a new distraction, and a new appreciation for the unknown. it keeps me humble. it keeps me wondering. it keeps me learning. it keeps me expectant. but best of all, it keeps me dependant. so, the truth is, i don't know..........He does.
that's all i really need to know

If there is anything I know, it's change. It's scary and uncomfortable yet fun and exciting all at the same time. Take this "blogging" thing for example. I was so excited to get started, had a lot of fun creating my page and coming up with my page title, and love that I am a part of the latest trend in communicating my life to others. On the other hand, as soon as I sat down to type the "thoughts and opinions of Linda Roberts" who's "roots aren't really blonde", I felt this overwelming pressure to speak insightful or meaningful words. Words to encourage those of you (all 3 of you) who decide to read it. I froze. I felt vulnerable; and that made me feel uncomfortable. Ok, so maybe I am being a little dramatic over a seemingly simple thing like blogging, especially considering the big turns my life has taken over the recent years. But my point is....ok, i don't really have a point, but i am blogging and that's a change for me.
Change....God continues throwing it at me, continues to excite me, and continues to scare the "me" out of me everytime.

Be alert, be present. I'm about to do something brand-new. It's bursting out! Don't you see it? Isaiah 43:19
