Hi there! My name is Maria Whittaker. I am looking forward to sharing my life and journey with you. I am going to warn you that I have no idea what to expect from this blogging business. I’ve tried before and ended up going back to my journals and notebooks. Mainly because I am used to them. But, throughout the years, I’ve discovered that journaling has helped me deal with some issues in my own heart. Writing what I am thinking at the moment helps me learn so much about myself and about God. Sometimes, I’ve seen my stupidity. Other times I’ve seen the mercy and grace of God. I’ve discovered that this journey I am on and this journaling thing has nothing to do with me, but with God. It is His story. It may be me in the journey, but it is His story of incredible mercy towards this ragamuffin sitting behind this computer screen, typing her thoughts away.
I hope you enjoy what I have to say. I will try my best to be raw, real, and relatable. However, I don’t want to lose sight of who this is all about. This about Jesus. It is about His work in and through simple people who mess up like me. This is about His work on the cross. The forgiveness that He has made available. My part is so tiny. He is the One who has done it all. So while I am sharing my deep thoughts, my anxieties, and those glorious moments of peace, I want to keep my eyes and yours on Christ. To Him be all the glory. We are only ragamuffins, beggars in the journey, counting on the ocean of grace made possible by His great love.
I look forward to sharing more with you. I look forward to connecting with you.
I look forward to being a friend. See you soon!
