I said it myself and I’ve seen lots of others express it…but blogging is fun!! This past week while blogging I got a new recipe (which was posted by Amy just for me – how sweet!) and I can’t wait to try. It is for chicken spaghetti! I also saw the neatest idea for reusing out-dated and/or unwanted picture frames. Shannon always has great decorating ideas and I have a closet of frames that I am anxious to repurpose! Oh, and I learned that baby Harper is breathing almost on her own….praise the Lord!! Is she just too precious sleeping on her tummy or what?
Blogging is fun. Communicating is fun…and I believe God made us to be communicators and with the desire to so. When I was a little girl, the phone was just becoming more than just a piece of business equipment and more of a way for housewifes like my mom (who were HOUSEwifes in a much truer sense of the word than stay-at-home moms today!) to communicate with others. Fast forward through cordless phones, cell phones, text messages, facebook (?!?) etc….even to blogland! Isn’t it great!
As with anything..there is perspective and need to heed caution. We were created to communicate with our Heavenly father. Our natural desire should be to “early seek Him”….to call out to Him and have Him speak to us in return. Are those my first thoughts in the morning? or am I anxious to get on the computer? When difficulty or challenges come up throughout the day, am I seeking the chance to get alone with Christ? or is my first inclination to call a friend? Phoning a friend is not wrong – nor is the computer – what can go wrong, is the priority each has in my life. My own challenge is to recheck my priorities and ask God to show me where any changes may need to be made.
That said, one more interesting blog that someone introduced me to this week….”At the Well“. It is be an encouraging spot for Titus 2 women…here is a copy from their blog stating some of their goals:
“Gathering At the Well”older women are to encourage the younger women
“Reflections on the Home”to be homemakers and busy at home
“To Raise Them Up”to love their children
“To Have and To Hold”to love their husbands and be subject to them
“Reflections on His Truth” to teach what is good… to be reverent in behavior, chaste, discrete”
