A Brief Explanation

OK, so here I am, starting a blog. I know I’m a bit of a late bloomer, but all you other bloggers have not only challenged me and inspired me; you’ve also made me feel left out. Haha, not really, but it seemed like a good opening line J

 Like most blogs I’ve read, I will begin by explaining the name I have chosen for my blog: Delightful Desperation.

Delightful = refers to my pursuit of delighting myself in the Lord as well as enjoying myself as a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom for all you kids out there). I don’t want to sound too domestic or anything, but this is my primary focus: my family and our home.

Desperation = refers to how desperately I need the Lord, even a reminder to myself that I need Him. Sometimes, more often than I would like to admit, I find myself living in my own strength, trying to accomplish my will, when I get tired or depressed, and my will gets thwarted or confused.  I need the reminder that Jesus gave to His disciples, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing.” I need to remember to seek Him first, live in His strength (which never runs out), and seek to fulfill His will (which never gets thwarted).

So, there you have it, my explanation.  I look forward to more in-depth posts, but for now, this will be enough to get things going. Besides which, my little Punkin is crying fit to break your heart. Time for Mommy to the rescue!
