I'm Stepping Out ,Eyes Wide Open!!!!

Well, here I Goooo... I'm going to do it!! I MEAN IT, I REALLY AM!!!!!! This is my first blog post.I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks after all, because up until Nov. I didn't even know how to turn on a computer.And look at me now, I'm even typing. My whole family is shocked! I used to watch all of them just peck away and say , Oh, that's nice. I guess I'm a big girl now! Ha, ha. Well, enough of patting myself on the back. What started me on this blogging journey is, I have a dream. And I'm determined to see it happen.Let me back up a bit.I started cruising the web a little, and found a link to" The Feathered Nest", and without even her knowing it, Dawn became my friend. Isn't it amazing how that happens, just by (accident) .I truly believe God is in the smallest of details. And He knows my heart. So I started following her blog everyday. NOW here's where my jump comes in ,Dawn said ;"Just Do It!!!!!!" So I DID. And now not only am I a big girl, but I'm also liberated. I'm sure some of you know what I'm talking about. It can be pretty scary stepping out beyond your comfort zone. Sometimes all we need is a little encouragement. And dear Dawn, I truly believe you have that gift. You never really know who you may touch with what you say,soooo ,I guess you could say I'm paying it forward. If some of you are holding back "Just do it, step out!" It's an adventure and you can't begin until you take that first step, and trust me, there are a lot of wonderful people out there who will walk with you and encourage you all the way. Thank-You Dawn , my dream will happen due to your gentle nudge. NOW WHAT ?

Hi Deborah, it's me Beth. I think you are a wonderful and brave women. And I believe God knows every hair on your head, and every detail of your life. It is so amazing to see someone leave there comfort zone, I've done the same thing. So just keep putting one foot in front of the other, and who knows where that might take you. Good luck and God Bless.
