Stories to tell

Hello blogging friends.
Struggling I am....what to write about these days. I'm in awe with my favorite bloggers....what each on of you wonderful ladies write....what I read and what I digest from your powerful words. Inspiration you all are to me.
Once again, I come to a road block in my journey. Why? Why can't I seem to stay on track....on the course....on the once freshly paved road to my spiritual journey. Why is it that when I think I have something to say to you (type on my borrowed keyboard) I fail to do so. Coming from a gal who is never lost for words..... now I am. I wouldn't make the cut for professional writer...oh, but wait....this brings something to my simple mind!
I received a question of what happened to Football Superstar .... our journey. Maybe this is something to write about? Don't know..... would they be interested in this on-going romance?
Geez, we are just two regular Joe's. We are not Bradjolina. So why would anyone be interested in us?
Well, let me just say that thanks to Gracie- she gave me a book to read. I'm enjoying, yes, truly I am....but there was this "hey, who does this author think she is...taking my romantic story about a girl who was going to move to NYC and move on with her life....who does this now "country cooking wife" think she is? Well, she beat me to the punch-that's who she is! She wrote a blog, a romantic book, a cookbook, magazine articles, been seen on the Today Show and now has her own show on food net work!
So thanks to Gracie, and this mystery book- I've decided to focus on what God has been doing in my our my life with Football Superstar. Yep, I've decided to stop thinking about what God is just doing in my keeping me together....and give snippets of how my very own blue-eyed sexy man (yes I said it) Football Superstar are doing. Don't worry, it's not going to be full of sap and spice.

Maybe this thought of writing something that happens daily, weekly, monthly in my life- in my real life has been triggered by what I had to fight my roller-coaster emotions for. And what I am witnessing happen to many around me. Marriages are being torn apart- some are just beginning.
Relationships are becoming broken and promises glued back together for a period of time.
Makes me wake up..... makes me realize that I've got a lot of answering to God about and a lot of thanking Him for! I'm finding myself once again of being that spoiled brat- maybe the young girl who wanted what she wanted- who could fend for herself- who felt a sense of being brave and in control once again.
And maybe.......just maybe it took two very strong men to wake me up.

Peace& Love


  1. I can't wait Lisa! Write what you're passionate about, about what touches your life -good or bad. I love reading whatever you have posted here.

  2. Lis,

    It's nice to see I'm not the only one who doesn't post things when other things in life kind of "take over." I've been working full time the last several months at a school, a high need school, and I'm now at a different school. Sometimes there is so much to write about but I'm too burned out to get it out. Sometimes I just need rest. I look forward to continuing with you on your journey, whatever is here. As I read many blogs, most of them are just about life. As a fellow passionate Italian, I know it's hard to just do the ordinary. Yet sometimes, that is where God works the most.
