Hi-there, hey-there, ho-there!
I’m Jazzy, author of crazy stories and devote ice-cream lover. Welcome to my little blog. Your end is near.
*pause for effect*
You don’t find me daunting? Okey-dokey, well what if I told you I have seven siblings? Or that I am a maniacal blogger with a ditzy edge and an evil laugh?
Some say I’m pessimistic. Others say I smile entirely too much. And what do I say? I say I’m a pessimist that smiles entirely too much. That’s actually not entirely true. Guess which part it is false, if you can. 😉
Ehem. Anyways, despite the opinion of an unlikely frienemy(he was the first person to say that I was a pessimist.), I love my life. With all my heart, I really do. Even with all my younger siblings, and the infinite supply of dirty diapers. I love it! Uh, not the diapers. My life. I love my life.
I’m a dreamer of the future; believer of the truth; lover of anything truly beautiful. I’m a visionary, a romantic, and a very outlandish brainstormer. Since a couple years ago, I’ve loved to sing and try to make music with the piano and violin. That’s going about as well as my growth– zilch progress. I’m still under 5’5. But, a girl can dream. Praise God for the imagination, right?
I have way too many hobbies, but my hobbies are like the waves in the ocean; the waters are always changing. One element that is forever dancing with the current is my love for my king and Savior. I love Him, I praise Him, I write for Him.
That’s why I have this blog! Well, at least one of the reasons.
Since I was eleven, I’ve always liked to write. I’d read a book, then mimic the writing style in a short story. Things began to get interesting when we found a dead deer in our back pasture and I described the carcass. Why in the known world would I do that, I have no idea. Strange thoughts of a silly little girl, right?
Following that incident, I went all bizarre. I read The Gates of Heaven series and began writing with C.S. Lakin’s style which is, well, terribly mature for the age I was at! I would scare myself at night as I sat at my desk, letting my pencil scribble freely. I would have these dramatic movies playing in my mind scaring me so bad. I would cry for my characters if they endured heartbreaking things. Was I crazy?
Probably. But I grew out of that. *scoffing at myself* I’ll just keep telling myself I’m not crazy. : )
Back to my writing journey, I have already filled up enumerable notebooks and my computer with hundreds of documents, scribbles, and painfully structured stories with misspelled words.
Then I decided to begin my blog. Except, I try my best to exclude the “painfully structured stories with misspelled words”. It’s a working progress, you know? It won’t happen over night. Nope, takes time and practice like anything.
I’ve blogged for, let’s see, three years? Sounds about right. Within those few years the name of my blog has changed from “The Hydden Chronicles” to “The Truths of my Heart” and finally my current– and hopefully final– name, “Thriving Hope.”
What’s in the name? you ask.
Well, we live in a time when the Lord is being pushed out of everything, shoved away from the younger generations, and being hidden from the lost lambs. There is little hope of improvement in our country, and yet as a Christian I am told to, “Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Cor. 13:7). We are to thrive in the hope of that coming day when Jesus will come and take us to the Glory Land. And that’s why I took that name. Because I want to help instill that same hope into all you people, all the people searching for a reason to believe and to thrive in Jesus Christ.
And I hope when you read my posts, it will be a blessing and an entertaining adventure! An escapade encumbered with nothing but good laughs, encouraging words, and french fries…
To rap it up, here’s a short summary of the “Jazzy” in me:
-I’m great at changing diapers,
“For the saints of God, and for the LAMB!”
Thanks for reading, and I hope you stay a bit and read some of my posts. 🙂 Your end is still near. Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten, friend. Hope your day is full of awesomeness, smiles, and good food! Bye!
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
