A Word Fitly Spoken

Why this title, you might wonder? Hmmm...well...as a teenager I was absolutely FASCINATED by words and their meanings, origins, uses, etc. I wrote like crazy...poems, stories, articles, and even a very sappy book at the age of 14. I remember the first time I read this proverb in the Bible. I was amazed at the beauty of it.

"A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." Proverbs 25:11

Gorgeous words. Words that sparked my overactive imagination and caused me to want to write even more! And so I did. For years I kept up my writing and worked on becoming the best writer I could be. I had several stories and poems published in different church publications in the United States over a period of ten years. I sent out a Christmas story each year for about 12 years to all my friends and family. One year I sent out over 150 copies of a story. Every year, as the Christmas season came around, I would have multiple people remind me to send them a story.

Then, suddenly, the writing came to an abrupt stop. What happened? Well, first of all, I got married in May of 2000 to an absolutely wonderful man, Scott Lynn.
Secondly, I got pregnant the summer of 2001, and delivered a healthy 7lb. 11oz. baby girl on April 1st, 2002. Thirdly, I got pregnant AGAIN in the autumn of 2002, and delivered a VERY healthy 9lb. 4oz. baby girl on June 20th, 2003. Whew...lots of work, I tell ya!

So, as you can see, I've had a very busy five years. Five years of bliss and pain and three years of changing pooey diapers. Man! Am I EVER ready for potty training to end!

My husband suggested that I set up my own blogsite just tonight. And I took his advice, seeing a GREAT opportunity to keep writing! So, here it is...and I will endeavor to keep this site a lighthearted, inspiring and uplifting recording of my thoughts and writings.

Hopefully I will be able to always produce a "word fitly spoken".

May God bless and keep you always.

Yeah!!! Kendra! I'm so glad you have found an outlet for your writting! Blogging can be a good "Mommy thing", just to get things off your chest or to talk about the kids or just to relax and do your own writing. I can't wait to read more. Love ya!

Today as I sat and read your first imput on this website my mind went back to the day I met you. It was my first day of school at ACA and I was scared, but there you were ready to show me the ropes since you were in second grade and knew what to do and where to go. Over the last 22 years of our lives we've been close and it seems like we have been far. But no matter what has happened in either of our lives you and I are still the best of friends. Ken you are a great woman of God and I am very blessed to have you in my life and to know you. Don't ever change no matter what! I mean that.
