Here we go!
I have been thinking about starting a new blog for a while now. A blog where I can think out loud about life and share some things God puts on my heart. A blog open to everything under the sun. I will still have my blog for Compassion International, Love for the Least of These, where I will continue to share about my sponsored children and the amazing journey God has put me on through loving those children.
My biggest struggle with this new blog was the title...what do you name a blog about anything and everything? (besides: "A Blog About Anything and Everything") So as I thought about various catchy names and witty sayings, I even asked on Facebook for ideas (I got zero, zilch, nada). I decided to merge a couple of things that come into my mind frequently: Wildflowers and Pixie Dust. An odd combination, I know.
Wildflowers come to mind in my love for God's creation, especially daisies ("Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?") and tiger lilies, but also through a song by Point of Grace called "Wildflower." I can relate to many aspects of this song. In recent years, it has come to be one of my all-time favorite songs.
Pixie Dust comes from, where else? Peter Pan! The quote goes "All you need is faith and trust and a little bit of Pixie Dust." While I believe the focus of this saying should be on the faith and trust rather than the Pixie Dust, it does bring the notion of dreams and imagination into our everyday lives. With an active imagination myself, I can relate to the "pixie dust" of life, and, as this will be a blog for random musings, I felt the term was quite fitting.
So here we are, the beginning of something new and hopefully exciting :) Very random, but very "me." Full of wildflowers and pixie dust!
