In October, after I went to the Allume Conference, I wrote this.
Readers, I want to invite you into my living room. Onto my couch. The rest of the room is probably littered with toys, purses, diaper bags, craft supplies, an empty coffee mug or two, the throw pillows my children INSIST go on the floor, and cracker crumbs. But I can clean the couch off, and I can probably manage to get those pillows back on there.
I want you to sit with me and look me in the eye. I’m going to tell you about how I’m a mess. Not just literally, although that’s true, but inside. Some days I feel like I want to hide in bed rather than face mothering again. Some days I’d just like my body for myself instead of being nursed on and climbed on and pulled and pinched. Some days I want to give in to Satan’s lies that tell me these kids would be better off without me, my husband is going to run off on me because I’m such a disaster, and God must be ashamed of me.
I will probably cry, just so you know. But I’ll also feed you, because that’s what I do. I love to cook and I love to feed. I will make your Great-Aunt Hoopti’s recipe for Fish Egg Stew with Homemade Ketchup and Steak Tartare if it will make you happy and feel loved.
And finally! We are here. I am slightly redesigned, I am rebranded. I am me. I’m excited to welcome you to JessieWeaver.net. We will probably be talking about a lot of the same things we have for the past seven years. But I also want to focus more on sharing devotions with you, talking more about how I deal with a messy life, and really invite you into my living room and my life.
I am so excited about this transformation. I have to throw out a GIANT THANK YOU to Amy Bennett, who helped me tremendously. I have absolutely no knowledge when it comes to the technical part of blogging, and I could not have done this by myself at all.
So come sit with me while my kids are planted in front of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. What’s going on in your life?
