This world of blogging is amazing. I find myself thinking throughout the day 'Oh, that would make a good post'. The fact is I enjoy reading other blogs more than posting myself. I don't even remember how I first found this cyberworld. The first blog that I regularly looked at was Lifesong. I found myself eager to read Kim's posts each day. I started to read some of the blogs on her blogroll like Lisa Writes, The Hutch, A Spacious Place, and This One's for the Girls. It is so encouraging to me to hear the thoughts of women striving to lead godly lives and be and excellent example to their families and the rest of the world. It is interesting to me that you can almost hear their voices in their posts. My husband laughed at me when I came to him and said "There is this whole other world out there...did you know?" He being the computer whiz that he is did, but not so interested.
The original blogs have lead me to others and so on. The personalities are as many as bloggers. Sarcastic, pure, humble, boastful, funny, serious. Some have thoughts just like mine (which is always comforting). Some have caused me to evaluate what I believe and why. Some have caused me to dig into the scriptures and find a truth for myself. Some I agree with, some others not so much. Some of these women are theologians themselve and way too deep for my simple thoughts. Some posts I have gone back to several times because it was such an encouragement.
Only God know how far this will go for me. I want to fully live my life and be present for my kids. I can see where this could get adictive and become a not so good habit. I have also had to check myself coveting the 'pretty' blogs and saying to myself, 'I want one of those.' I am sure that jealosy is still a sin even if it is over blog pages.
God truly is in the world of blogging. Thanks to those who have encouraged me and spurred me on. This is like having girlfriends to have coffee with whenever my schedule allows. A place to hear a complete thought and the comments of others. I am loving this new place of conversation. I pray that I can someday be the same encouragement and a enjoyable place to visit.
