My Water Jar

OK, so here goes...my first post...why am I nervous?? I never thought I would blog. I'm one of those people that won't do something just because it's popular. I didn't wear burkenstocks until people stopped wearing them, but I enjoy writing and this is a way to get myself to write.

I chose the name 'My Water Jar' for my blog because of the woman at the well. She put down her water jar to tell people in the town about a man she just met named Jesus...so for two reasons I chose the name. One, because I hope that what I write can give water to the thirsty. I'm a Christian so that will be reflected in what I write. If you don't like it, don't read it. Two, because I plan to do some study for my writing and I hope that will fill up my water jar. One apology is that I am horrendous with punctuation...so if you are good at it...I'm sorry.

Thanks for the reminder that God is always there. His agenda usually isn't understood by me. I was just reading John's account of the Good Shepherd. I was struck, at the time, about the fact that the Shepherd went before the sheep and they followed because they recognized His Voice. I was wondering about that...recognizing His Voice...was God walking before you, is that why you didn't see Him when you looked behind?
Love you...keep writing!!!

Actually, your punctuation wasn't half bad. :) better than Chris'. (sorry honey) I was thinking of going into editing at some point. Don't know when...I am always finding mistakes in the books I read. Weird.
