Pavement Ponderings

My morning run always inspires me. I’ve written unpublished blogs, books, solved world problems, cussed people out and cried tears. A few weeks ago, I had this crazy inspiration to share one thing a day on Facebook that my friends may or may not know about me.  As I began to share, I was inspired and encouraged to begin a blog.  So here I am.

Initially, I want to share what I shared on Facebook.  I think I might have made it to day 13 and then life got busy and overwhelming.  It has a way of doing that, doesn’t it? Anyway, as I move forward in blogging, I will share other things.  I hope that whatever I share, it touches someone, resonates with someone, and maybe even changes a life or two.

The first thing I shared was that I’m a Christian.  Everything about my marriage and my family is rooted in my faith.  I’ve fallen away from my faith before, doubted it, and depended on it.  The circles of life.

I have a lot of friends who aren’t Christians and I like that. I enjoy the ways in which they challenge me to think differently. I’m not exclusive with my friendship. Many of my non-Christian friends are nicer than Christians I’ve met and more loving. Kind of sad, I think, but true.  Sometimes, I’m judged because of my faith but I’m used to opinions so I blow it off. 🙂 Faith shaming is as ugly as body shaming. Shaming in general is ugly.

So that’s the first thing I want to share.  I’m looking forward to writing more and seeing where this goes.
