I have been doing quite a bit of thinking about this little blog, I have been so blessed to have, for a bit now. And I have decided it is in need of some changes.
I have had this little space, with the same URL of shycountrygal.blogspot.com since 2010. The title of the blog then was "Seeking HIS Guidance In All Things".
At that point in my life, I was not married and did not see marriage in my near future. As a matter of fact, I had no idea what the LORD held in store for my future. So, I wrote about how I was seeking the LORD's guidance, while HE showed me the path in life I would take.
Sometime during that time period, the LORD showed me HIS path, as clear as day. I was to become a "stay at home daughter", preparing myself for the possibility of marriage. And so the blog name changed again.
It was renamed "With Her Hands". I wrote about how the LORD was using my time as a stay at home daughter, learning to be as the Proverbs 31 woman...
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. Proverbs 31:10-13
Two years went by, and I did marry the man of my dreams in April of 2013. I am now a mostly stay at home wife (I teach a preschool class, two half days a week).
And somehow this little blog has gone somewhat neglected.
I never meant to be so inconsistent with my blogging upon being married. It just happened.
When I did finally get back to blogging regularly this summer, I was at a loss on what to write. It's like something inside me was screaming to write, and share my thoughts, but there was something blocking me from doing so. So I have just been posting fashion, or recipes.
While I dearly love sharing those things, it's not what I want to spend all of my time sharing.
I considered a new blog, but voted against it. So, I have changed the name of this blog, once again, to simply "Shy Country Gal" (that is what I am). (finally it matches the URL!!!)
I want to get back to sharing this life the LORD has blessed me with.
It is not an exciting, spectacular life, but GOD has given it to me. And I see HIS goodness in it EVERY DAY! And I want to share that goodness with others, so they can look, and see GOD's goodness in their own wonderful lives.
So you can count on some more personal posts, and much of the same old same old. Like fashion, or photography, or homemaking.
Things won't look HUGELY different around here. But hopefully, you'll see me a bit more. :D
So, welcome to "Shy Country Gal". My prayer is that you see GOD's goodness, in ALL that is said here. :)
Have a wonderfully blessed day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I am open to any post suggestions! Or if you have a question about me, ASK! I'd love to answer you! :D
