Five months. That is how long it has been since I last posted here. I hate when I don’t post, because that usually means I am not writing, or I have been stuck with writer’s block. In this case I suppose it is all the above coupled with busyness. So all excuses aside – here is a little about what I was doing, and what I am planning to do if the Lord wills.
I have a craving to write today. I have a blog post that has been sitting unfinished for quite some time, but I am stuck, and I need to step away from it for awhile. Sometimes my thoughts form into to blog posts so freely, and I can barely get my fingers to type them out fast enough, other times, like the mentioned post, every word is a struggle. It is often through the difficult posts that the Lord shows me that I must humble myself before Him, and allow Him to teach me the lessons I sometimes feel I’ve already mastered.
When writing about my faith, which is the majority of my posts on here, I find that I have failed to prayerfully consider the things I am writing. There are times that I have started writing a post thinking “I bet this will get lots of attention“. Oh how self seeking we can be! I am glad that the Lord has been gracious enough to show me my selfish ways. It is a hard lesson to learn, and it is one I have to continue learning daily. I want the things I post to glorify Him that gives me the ability to write. I am not a super writer, and I know there are grammar police out there that would like to teach me a thing or two, but I trust the Lord will provide clarity and understanding to those that read. It is my prayer that my posts can be encouraging to those that read them. I love to hear thoughts from my readers. In the last while my views have gone up considerably, so I know you are out there; I would love to see some comments.
So, back to my craving to write… I am working on a post that should be up in a day or two!
Well, if you have visited here in the past you will notice that I have changed things up a bit. I was ready for a new look, and new inspirations to keep blogging regularly. Lately my posts have been, well, sporadic.
With the new look I have also given myself a challenge. Blog more. Doesn’t sound very challenging? It is. I love checking the blogs I follow, and I am genuinely excited when I see they have a new post. I think blogging is a very interesting concept. I am literally letting you guys into my brain with every new post I put out.
I am hoping to journal and take some step by step photos of the DIY’s that I do. I will be posting more regularly, and with that will come more everyday photos. I will be continuing my monthly updates, as these are a record for me to look back on, and they are important to me, even if all I write about are the three munchkins, or the amount of snow we got; that is my life. I will also be continuing my devotional journal writings. I love my heavenly Father, and a blog without the thoughts He puts in my trust is a blog without who I truly am. Without Him I am nothing, and I owe everything to Him!
With that I am going to sign off for the day. Take care of yourselves and those around you!
