It's your funeral..

"It's your funeral."   Yes, it was something to that affect my husband said as I tried my best to justify the need  to write such a blog with such a title.
Why open myself up to possible attacks and ridicule due to my many seemingly contradictory beliefs and ideas?
I guess I just delight in bucking against the stereotypes, always looking for the exception.

But will this blog be exclusively about controversy and uncomfortable topics?  No. I do hope to share quite a bit about the beauty I see in the world, my faith, friends, and family.  The roses among the thorns so to speak.

And I can't have a vegan blog that doesn't include talk of food, yes amazing food.  I may even share a recipe from time to time.  Not convinced that vegans are anything but deprived souls who martyr themselves for the sake of the animals by giving up anything that has taste?  Well, just wait and see.


  1. I love it! I love your blog! The first post is always the hardest. It's not your funeral, it's your living. Martin Luther King said, one who doesn't stand for something will fall for anything.

    If you are being nudged - lead to communicate a message that's been given to you don't let fear be the reason to keep you from expressing something designed to communicate with folks right where they are.

    I've discovered by my extremely controversial posts there is a need for certain tough topics to be addressed.

    Search within. The Holy Spirit will lead you to do what's best. It may not be easy, but faith says God will lead us to do what is best.

    Be well, know peace.

  2. Dear "Contented". Thanks so much for the encouragement! :-)

  3. Well, I am an old fat white-guy,
    but I say "Press on, sister, press on".
    Don;t stop bloggin'.

    LOve and Grace to you and yours.

    Shalom on The Journey . . .

  4. Thanks for the encouragement as well, Shepherd. Love and grace to you and yours also.
