Welcome!

Welcome to the journey!

And so begins a new adventure…

I wish I could say that I was hit by lightening and I heard the loud voice of God telling me to blog… but I didn’t; at least not in this earth-shattering way. For the past few months I have been asking God to guide me in finding a way to use the communication and presentation skills he has blessed me with. I am confident that God has a delightful sense of humour and just when I thought I had figured out what it is that he wants me to do, I was thrown a curve ball!

I was driving to work earlier this week when two things, out of absolutely no where, popped into my head and settled in my heart. One was the word “blog” and the other was the phrase “A Cow Changed My Life”. I tried to quickly dismiss “blog” but I had to smile at the phrase. It’s a very real event… one that not only changed my life but is also the reason I am where I am today. Was it a coincidence that I would think of these two things? No, it’s a Godincidence (thanks M.B. for teaching me this term!). God speaks to us in so many different ways if only we take the time to listen.

In due course I will share with you the story behind the phrase but for now, welcome to a faith journey and a journey of faith. I look forward to traveling on the road with you and to sharing stories.

Peace,
Valerie
