It is official. The Stone family is blogging! I know, I know we are so behind the times. Oh well. Better late than never I suppose!
Perhaps you are thinking: “So why start a blog now? Oh yeah … you had a kid. Everyone who has a kid has to have a blog. Its like required for being a Momma. One of those forms you sign before the let you push the baby out: ‘Yes. I will start a blog‘”
No silly. Not really.
So why a blog then?
I am beginning to see that family blogs are like modern-day time capsules, all ready to have stories & memories & pictures tucked away inside. They allow grown children to someday see an inside perspective of how their Momma & Daddy thought, spoke, lived.
That is very cool. Not because WE are cool, but because we belong to an amazing God who refuses to leave us as we are – yucky, sinful, & messy – but He is constantly in the process of changing us to look like His Son Jesus. I want our children to see that process, to learn from – and hopefully be encouraged by our journey – for His glory.
Blogs can also help us remember the real details of our life, the important & the mundane. The Lord tells His people over & over to REMEMBER what He has done. For His glory. Remember. Remember. Remember. Those are just a few times. There are a whole bunch more!! Go read your Bible & see!
Also, blogs can help friends stay in touch even when you live far apart. If you are my friend and you don’t live near me then I praise the Lord for your steadfastness. Because I stink at staying in touch!! I like to sit down, face-to-face. Have you over for a cup of coffee & chat, heart-to-heart. Phones. Letters. Emails. I am horrible. All my long distance friends are nodding their heads. I am hoping this will help.
I DO hope a couple of you will read our little blog 🙂 Even if you don’t I’m going to try to be faithful to do it.
I also promise to post pictures (of Hudson). Because what is a blog without pictures, right?! And he is the one you are in it to see right? I thought so. Alright, until next time!
