And so it begins...

I , Josh Carmody, have decided to start a blog.


I want to write about my life as a husband, father, son, friend, Pastor, diabetic, and exercise enthusiast.

As I begin to share my joys, fears, ups and downs with you regarding my life and circumstances I pray that you find hope. I pray that you find peace. I pray that you laugh a little. I pray that you laugh a lot. I pray that you can relate and will be encouraged to live your life to the fullest.

My life, just like your life, is a journey. I had no idea that I would actually WANT to live in a town of 25,000 people and devote my life to being a pastor. I had no idea of the joy that I could experience until the day I was married. Or the unexplainable joy of watching my daughter and my son brought into this world. I had no idea that I would be diagnosed with an incurable disease at age 30. I had no idea that as you grow older you still think you are young.

I know where I've been and I know where I am ultimately headed, but it's an unknown journey of wonder and amazement along the way. I have heard it said that wonder lives on the frontier of our ignorance. There are so many things that I know. And one of them is this: I know nothing about tomorrow. I know nothing of what the future holds. I have no idea who my kids will marry or where they will live. I know nothing about where this blog is headed. I am ignorant. I am on a journey and I am wide awake with wonder...ready and anticipating all that comes next.

Will you join me on this journey? Will you allow your ignorance to lead you into wonder and amazement?

And so it begins...
