I have a confession to make. I am a blog addict. I love playing with images and words to communicate what's on my mind and heart. It's a little like painting or sewing...But with computer code. I still don't know very much about it all but I enjoy using what I do know.
So...I started another one. Excessive? No. In fact, I think I finally got it right. Recent political events have renewed in my heart a burden that was placed long ago. I'm copying below my inaugural post from my new blog, Handmade for Life, that describes why I felt compelled to start another one....
This blog began as a little nudge in the back of my soul that told me I wasn't doing enough to speak up for the unborn. When President Obama took office and immediately began implementing the anti-life policies that he promised he would, that nudge became an uncomfortable pinch...And then a shove...And then a shout!
It is my hope to use this medium as a way to build up a culture of Life using the gifts that God has given us in the work of our hands. 'Handmade' has an overlooked and underestimated value in the building up of a healthy culture. It is perhaps somewhat similar to the way that life has become a throwaway commodity. We use and toss...
But the work of our own hands has value that can't be purchased at a big box store. How much more value has the work of the hands of the Creator of Life itself?
I pray that the direction this simple work goes will be directed by His hand. I dedicate it to the Divine Artist. Let us begin!
