I’m so glad you dropped by . . .
Firstly, I should tell you my name is Cara. Beyond that, the importants are as follows: loving wife to Michael, incipient YA writer, Craft and DIY enthusiast, and doting dog-mommy to Annabella. And . . . like every proud parent, I must show you one picture now; though I make no promises that dozens aren’t to follow in subsequent posts . . . Hopefully you won’t mind. She’s pretty darn cute, if you ask me.
And lastly — I’m a bit of a picture fiend, I’ll admit it — the Hubs and I, all swanked out for “The Nutcracker” last December.
About me and This Little Light ~
My mind is kaleidoscopic; bits of color here, a sparkle there, thousands of pieces of potential. Mostly, though, it’s rough terrain without much navigable or visual continuity. I struggle with indecision and ambivalence, fraught with the desire to do “this” just as much as “that,” and ultimately become so terribly overwhelmed with choosing the correct answer, that I bury myself under “neither.” The process goes something like this: thinking, thinking, thinking, idea! Bad idea . . . throw idea out, thinking, thinking, thinking, exhausted, snuggled around a bag of pita chips in bed.
This Little Light seeks to remind me that I am called to be a light. I am not called to be perfect, I am not called to do it all by myself, I am not called to be exceptional in every way — I am to illuminate the darkness with the light Jesus has placed in my heart. My number one responsibility is to love God with all my heart, soul, and mind, and to love my neighbor as I love myself — Matthew 22:37-39. That’s all. The beauty of this is, if I do these things, I do everything else, too.
With this blog I plan to incorporate a little of everything, endeavoring to spread wisdom, light, and love through my passion for writing and all of which inspires me to be the woman I was created to be. I hope to exemplify what it means to live every day like the gift that it is. I feel there is much wisdom to be gleaned from others, and here is where I will share it with you, passing on savory tidbits of anything I am lucky enough to stumble upon.
