Hello there! My name is Josie and this is my blog, Apple Blossoms! I am a sixteen year old girl, first and foremost a follower of my amazing Savior, Jesus Christ.
I am also an artist, in every sense of the word. Be it painting, dancing, or writing; all of that is going to find its own cozy nook in this blog. I am a lover of story and its impact on the world.
This blog will vary; I’ve never done this before, so we are going to take it on the fly! It will probably look like a whole lot of musings, a steady amount of book lists, a little bit of tutorial and patterns and a whole lot of quirky me and my infatuation with words. All to God’s glory!
Be that the right thing to call this or not, here we go! My goal for this little blog is that as small and unimportant as it may seem it would: be like a tiny spark that lights up the whole room, a tiny whiff of fresh spring air that brings hope to a whole winter covered world.
Sometimes I wonder how I can do that. What can I possibly hope to achieve? After all, I’m pretty flawed and broken myself. But thanks be to God, it is not on my strength that I need to rely. A song from one of my favorite bands comes to my head: “Maybe one more hand in the air saying ‘You are holy!’ One more shattered heart singing, ‘You are good.’ Maybe one more voice crying out for mercy; one more hungry soul declaring ‘You’re enough!’ As long as there’s breathe in me, Lord there will always be one more song for You. *
This Blog is a Celebration of art and story and creativity
I also hope to give out suggestions such as good book lists and writing ideas and art projects and so on. But rather I get my scatterbrained self together or not, I hope that my little thoughts and dreamy ideas would be a whiff of spring air to winter weary souls. Soli Deo Gloria!
For the mending, Josie Praytor
