Hello, everybody!! I have read so many really cool blogs that I decided that I have to have my own place to do this! Hope you enjoy reading this and learning about me and those I care about.
I suppose a little background info on myself is in order. I learned about blogging through Vine & Branches Christian Community (hereafter known as VBCC, as the lawyers would say). The name Scriptorium comes from the fact that I am a decent calligrapher and mediocre artist, and if I were able to choose another time period to live in, I'd want to be a part of one of those 4th-century monasteries, hanging out with vellum and quill, copying Scripture and doing the cool illuminations with the gold leaf and inks made from powdered rubies and such. Since I don't live in the 4th century (and thank God for all the stuff we have now, such as blogs and microwave ovens), I do my art thang in the spare bedroom of my apartment and call it my personal scriptorium. I actually have a day job as a dental claims processor, working on the computer all day, which pays just enough to keep me off the street, but I have met some neat people there from all over the world. I'm divorced, but that was so long ago that I think I may qualify for "born-again single". That whole deal actually seems like someone else's life; and considering the fact that I really began my relationship with Jesus Christ about five years after that, I suppose it was someone else's life. I've been a "Christ-follower" for about 11 years now, and not only are His mercies new every morning, but I seem to find something new and cool about God every day. I hope through this blog to share some of those things with you.
You'll notice several links to websites and other blogs to the side--these are people who are like-minded, that I care about and admire, and who are really cool. (If your name isn't there, it doesn't mean I don't think you're cool; it just means I haven't got around to putting you there or haven't figured out how to update this thing yet.) Check out some of these sites when you get a chance--I think you'll be glad you did.
I think that's enough for now; you have the thumbnail sketch--it'll take a while to fill in the whole portrait.
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
