God is in the rain

I was talking with another writer about her blog. She’s rad and has over a million page views since she started it. Ah-mazing.  Truth be told, I started this fledgling blog and thought it might magically write itself. So, I picked her brain. Her blog has a theme, dolls. Admittedly, I rarely played with dolls much and am actually creeped out by a majority of them (I’m sorry!). Her blog is successful because she faithfully tends it, updates the content and stays on the target of dolls.

So how do I focus? I’m s Christian wife and mom that loves sci-fi, tacos, movies and VW’s as well as Disney. I own my own rolling tool box and circular saw, prefer my laundry air dried and it’s not below me to wear socks with Birkenstocks. And nothing excites me like a thesaurus!

While I’ve been praying for direction, God took the opportunity to plop something into my lap. Foremost, I will not deny the Lord in this platform, but I want to share with others something that I enjoy! The sermon given tonight opened up the door for my direction via Psalms 29:3: “…the God of glory thunders.” As Pastor Jim started through this verse, I thought of a quote from one of my favorite movies:

“God is in the rain.”

So welcome to my opinions of films, movies and television as afforded by a Sunday School teaching, Austen adoring, chicken herding writer. Be assured that randomness will occur, but feel free to fling me a title that you’d like me to peruse.

Until next time, remember: normal is overrated.


**P.S. Yes, yes, I’ll be posting up V for Vendetta soon.


About sarahb5149

When tasked with how to describe myself, I get quiet, leading people to believe that I am trying to come up with something deep and meaningful. In fact, I am trying to decide which to display without confusing them. I'm a Christian. And that doesn't mean that I simply say it - I love the Lord and have figured out over the years that He knows what He's doing, even when I am stomping my feet or looking at Him like I have no clue what is going on (*hint* it happens more than I'd care to admit). Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a wee lil' thing; I kept my first poem in all of it's stammering, unevenness. Wife and mom, daughter and sister, aunt and Sunday School teacher, I adore the roles that God has given me. A bit of a sci-fi nerd, geek and self proclaimed dork, there isn't much that I won't try at least once...unless it involves mayonnaise because that stuff is just gross. View all posts by sarahb5149
