Still running for the cheese (or why this blog still exists)

As my regular readers can tell, this has been a dry year for me. Just look at the number of posts this year vs. 2008! Awhile back, I had considered either shutting down the Maze, or starting a new blog that would more accurately reflect where I am in life now. Truth be told, sometimes I come here, look around, and feel distinctly hypocrytical about the things I want to write. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever be in that kind of place.
As the time in between posts has grown longer, I came to realize something. Without the past years' material, where I am now makes very little sense. What good is the destination without the journey? As Christians, so much of the best stuff that happens to us is in the times God is molding us to His image. To throw away the evidence of that process would somehow cheapen the result, I think.
So, here we are, dear friends. I think my little mousie may just have rounded a corner finally. Some things will change around here to reflect the changes in my heart. And you know what? That's ok. As much as I typically rage against anything changed in my life, I'm learning to accept the God-given ones. My prayer is that some of you may be encouraged by what you read here. Hey, you may even be challenged. And of course, if you know me, then you know you always stand a good chance of being offended too. Not intentionally, to be sure! Just know that what you find as you wander this Maze with me may surprise you as much as it does me.

All that to say this:

A New Year, A New Me?

So it's now 2008, and I am taking another stab at blogging. I think if I keep it simple, it just might work. No fooling around. No playing around at being someone I am not. Although to be fair I am not entirely sure exactly who I am to begin with.
I do know this. I am a mom. I am a wife. I am a child of God, or at least it feels that way to me. I'm not sure what I believe, or what I hold dear. I don't really have a "cause" or a "passion". There's nothing that gets me riled up, one way or the other.
This blog will mostly be me trying to puzzle out all of the different aspects of what being a mom, wife, and Christian entail. What I want to keep, and what I want to throw away. Much of it is for my own benefit, but it may help others along the way. I know I'm not the only indecisive nutter out there!
