I'm ready.  I'm waiting.

Waiting on the edge of the unknown.

Can't see the bottom.  Not sure I want to.

It's the process, the jumping that is the experience.

Ready.  Waiting.

Seeing this is a new spot to jump off of.  Wondering where it will lead me.  Lead us.

Every journey begins with the first step?  This first step is huge!

Darkness lines the path below.  Light shines from above.

And I know, I know, that God is there, up there, in the Light.  And I know, deep down in my soul know, that He will take my hand and not let me fall into that darkness.

Did Abraham wonder where he was headed when he left Ur of the Chaldeans?  Did he ask God about it?  Can I ask God?

But then, the journey begins with that first step into the unknown.  And I'm ready.  I'm waiting.

Waiting.  For God to say

Learning to blog

I can learn!

I wasn't sure if my old brain could still learn new things, but I can, and I am.  I decided to take an on-line course of how to blog, and I'm glad I did.

Prior to now, I had set up two blogs.  One at WordPress and the other here.  And I set them up years ago.  But nothing ever got published.  Oh, I know, I needed to actually type something in to get it on the blog, but I really wasn't sure I knew what I was doing.

And besides, who would want to read what I wrote.

Then a month or so ago, I sat down and wrote my introduction.  It felt so good to put it on the page, to see it published.  Still, I wasn't sure I knew enough of the techie stuff to do this right.

So I checked out my local community colleges ed2go courses.  And there I found just what I was looking for.  (By this time I had forgotten that I had another blog space over at WordPress.  That makes me wonder how much I'll retain from this course.)

So these first posts, and I do know what a post is, will be learning experiences.  My intro into blogging is an okay post, but I cringe to see I need to edit it!  Typos, okay misspellings, bad grammar, eek!

Please bear with me as I learn how to go back and edit something I've already posted.  (I figured that out!)  I sure hope I can go back and fix it.  Well, no one has read it yet.  Maybe I should just delete it and repost it.

Back to my lessons.
