I started this blog about eight months ago with trepidation. I had just stumbled upon blogs a short time before starting and I thought they were a great place to share some junky ideas and projects. I had no idea where to start. I've posted some photos, shared a vacation, shared a few ideas, and shared the passing of my Wonderful Father-in-Law.
I've smiled from ear to ear when I read the sweet comments left by some of my "followers" or others in Blog-Land. Or, maybe you lifted me up during our family's loss in November. I mean, who doesn't like positive feedback or to be lifted up during a time of need?
My blog is "under construction" right now. I've tired of my "wallpaper" and my layout. I've tired of the fonts and the colors. I thought that by changing things around with a fresh new look I'd be more inspired to blog daily or at least more often.
But the truth is, I've devoted WAY too much TIME to Blog-Land. My Bible and daily devotions sit in the same place day-after-day while I spend my quiet time in the morning following my blog list that I turn to for inspiration. Where can one get BETTER inspiration than our Bible? I have totally prioritized my list of "to-do"s wrong. I am feeling a bit ashamed.
I have been CHOOSING to pick-up my laptop instead of my Bible. I mean, it is really a choice we make, isn't it? There's this women in my head that speaks rather LOUDLY to me when I reach for my laptop - she says: "Only you can make that choice - it's your Bible or your laptop". Most mornings I consiously CHOOSE to ignore both her and my Bible. My Bible sits there, loyal, faithful and quietly waiting for me. It hasn't given up on me - yet.
I have made the decision (with the help of the woman who speaks loudly in my head) to step away from Blog-Land for awhile. I might be back. I might not. I have more important priorities in my life that need my attention and I need to get back to my basics - My Bible. After all, for us believers, isn't that what Life is all about - leading a life a Faith, Hope and Love? They can all be found in my Bible, and that's where you can now find me each morning - with my Bible and a cup of tea, searching and yearning for the right inspiration for me.
Thanks for your friendship, inspiration and your kindness.
