To Blog Or Not To Blog..........

that is the question. I have never considered blogging, but then a few weeks ago I received an email from Dr. Jimmy Dukes (one of the professors I had while attending NOBTS) encouraging me to write a blog. A BLOG...... who? me? I struggle with technology, so my first thoughts were "no way", I can't even figure out how to make my dvd player work.

However, the idea would not go away and so HERE I AM! Blindly finding my way through the blogging world. If you know me well you know I LOVE TO COMMUNICATE! In fact....words have always come pretty easy to me...and "yes" at times too easy. My biblical profile is "Peter" and as John McArthur says, "Peter is the disciple with the foot-shaped mouth."

It is my prayer that this blog will be a blessing and that the words posted will bring glory and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ. I can't make any promises that I won't have "foot- in -the- mouth moments", but if I remember to take every thought captive, my feet will stay on the ground and out of my mouth.

I chose to call my blog Cherishing the Treasure because that is where I want to live. I want to live Cherishing the Treasure that lives inside of me so that I will daily spill out the love of Christ. The fact that my name is found in the word "Cherishing" is a bonus!

So, here I am...........hoping that we can Cherish Him together and along the way post some of our moments with Him as well as moments we have with one another.
