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

Change is exciting but scarey as well. Here is I look at it sometimes.

C- can do it
H- have to, to survive
A- accept it
N- never turn your back on it
G-greater things could happen
E- ease into it.

I am so glad I'm not the only one who thinks that about blogging. Sometimes I really have something to say and other times I just kinda ramble.
I love the background!

Linda, Your honesty is fresh and lovely. Such a sweet attitude and amazing sense of grace despite life's suck moments. Gotta love those ups-n-downs! I look forward to reading your blogs.

I'm so not a modern woman - the thought of doing a blog is a daunting task for the brave. You've got what it takes though! Take care, leilani
