The year 2021 (What a year!)


What a year 2021 has been for me. I think with how little I have blogged that you can guess how it has gone for me. After all, you will see great gaps where nothing was shared. This is not like me. 

I am a journal keeper, but just haven't done much of that either, until rather recently.

I am a writer, but nothing has stuck this year. I haven't wanted to continue to writing whatever I've tried. 

2021 has been a hard, painful, busy, life-changing year. 

My dad died. It wasn't expected. My husband and I moved across country, again, to move into my dad's house. Moreover, we had that house fixed-up and I am now trying to sit down and figure out what I want to do with my journaling and writing as I take stock of how to proceed from here. 

2021 has been a year of transition and changes. 

I am not sure if I want to look back on 2021 or if I just want to look forward. I guess time will tell. 


This is the start of a new era in my Journal Keeper SD Blog. This blog post is the new beginning. 

What new beginning? That is the question.

And I will not lie. I have no idea what I'm doing. Not yet.


I know I will be journaling through the Bible. I will be starting with the Book of Romans. Who knows what I will be doing with this, other than journaling my thoughts as I read through the book. But, I will start here and see what develops. That much I know. 

I am taking a risk and putting this on my blog. I do not want to start a project only to stop it again. 

However, in sharing this on my blog, I hope it will be the start of something new and lasting. 

I am writing this here so that I can hold myself accountable. 

Maybe I should be even more open and honest and tell how I have no idea about my plan, or how slow or fast I will go through Romans, but at least this is a place to start, experiment, journal through, and see what develops.

This is my attempt to finally get something on the page. I hope this is the beginning of something wonderful. 

(Lord, help me.)
