I'm betting most of you originally stumbled upon this blog because of adoption, and not solely because of my sunny disposition, superior intellect and rapier wit, as I would prefer to believe (those latter two, of course, were the reasons you kept coming back, though- right?).
But my blog, like many of yours, didn't remain an "adoption blog" for long. It was quickly filled with all the other aspects of my life. I've talked plenty about being a Christian here- and I certainly don't shy away from doing that, as it's the biggest part of my life- but my faith has never been the main focus of this blog. In fact, it often gets lost in the sea of stories about my kids and family life, my health, my weirdo sense of humor (which is sometimes inappropriate and very unChristian-y), etc., etc.
So... I've (drum roll, please) set up another blog to speak specifically about issues of faith. Not just faith in general, but my faith and what God is doing in my life lately. I'm not trying to relegate my Christian beliefs to some dark corner or anything- again, I'm not embarrassed or ashamed to discuss those things here. It's just that I realize many of you don't come here to be bombarded with my views on Jesus and/or Obama and I want to be sensitive to that. You come here for the mad-cap hijinks... Like when I got stuck in a pair of Spanx, or when I peed my pants a little bit while cooking dinner. And the thought-provoking, intelligent pieces... Like when I peed my pants a little bit while cooking dinner (the second time).
If you share an interest in matters of Christian faith, you're welcome to visit me at God Calls Me Honey. I'd love it if you click on over and help me get the ball rollin,' although I've just started so there's not much to read yet.
You're welcome to join me there whether you share my beliefs or not, of course, but if you're not a Christian? Be warned-- it's going to be All God, All The Time. Some political posts are bound to wind up there too, I'm sure. It's often hard to discuss one without the other these days. You Liberal friends will not like it. Trust me in this. So please don't come over there hoping to spark a lively debate. It's probably (hopefully) not going to be that kind of blog. If you fear that hearing too much about my faith or politics will change the way you feel about me, don't read it. Simple as that.
There might be some homeschool-related stuff from time to time, too- since that topic is also closely tied to my faith. Who knows? The only thing we can know for sure is that the Spanx catastrophes will remain here. Do not fear- this blog will stay open so that my faithful readers (both of you) will never have to wonder if I'm trapped somewhere in a sweaty pair of Spanx, about to pee my pants.
