Why am I blogging?

Filed under: Uncategorized — lawsonjolly @ 12:34 am

Sometimes I look back and ask myself why I got involved in certain things.  That is the question before me now.  Why am I blogging?

Perhaps I got overwhelmed and signed up before knowing what I was getting myself into.  Judy and I had been on a 16 day trip through the midwest.  Part of the time was attending one of Jennifer’s Fresh Ground Faith conference (  with more than 2000 women in attendance. Following the trip we celebrated Thanksgiving, followed by another of Jennifer’s conferences in Clearwater, Florida.  (I need to share more about Clearwater and its place in my life.) This conference brought a reunion of family.  Many flew in from various cities.  These  whirlwind weeks had me almost dizzy and so I was probably not thinking when confronted with becoming a blogger.

Our oldest grandson came in from Baylor University, Waco, Texas.  He encouraged me to begin a blog.  It all sounded good and fun, yet I had no idea what to do.  Now here I am trying to learn the whole process.  I have no real agenda, and I certainly am not seeking confrontation over some issue.  I think I will only be writing thoughts that go through my mind from time to time.

I do hope, however, that I can share some things that might be of encouragement or help–even if it is nothing else than to get others to smile or remember some good things in their life.  My life has been so wonderful that I enjoy giving testimony to the marvelous journey of these many years!  It may be that Clayton, the grandson, had this in mind when he encouraged me.

Most of all, it is my desire that all who read my blogs will discover the love and leadership of God in my life and that such a relationship with Him is available to all.




  1. Hey Bro Jolly!! 🙂
    It is great to see you blogging (although i don’t do it myself) and i look forward to keeping up with you this way.
    I notice that you’ve been staying up pretty late…this blog was published AFTER MIDNIGHT! Look at you LOL!
    Anyway, just wanted to tell you that i hope you have a very Merry Christmas and i hope to see you all when you head back this way.
    With love,

  2. I am enjoying your blogging so much. Your desires are coming to light as we learn more of how the Lord has and is working in your lives and how you have lead others to allow the Lord to lead them.
