ok, so maybe that title was kind of redundant.
but still. sometimes, i think it is good to reminded that a blog really is just a blog!
it may or may not portray what a person's life is really like.
it may or may not describe a true reading of a someone's personality.
and it may or may not express a person's true blue feelings.
sometimes i can read a blog and think..
wow. she really has it all together!
which can then snowball into...
why can't I get my act together then with __________ - you fill in your own blanks!
being a wife,
managing my time
managing my money
managing my business,
and on and on the list can go.
sometimes, when i write in my own blog,
i have to stop and ask myself what my purpose in the post is.
i do not want to take as many cute pictures i can in the 5 minutes of any given "good" day
and then post it complete with lengthy paragraphs filled with words i have gotten from my thesaurus to paint the picture of perfection.
it's just not real life.
first of all, there is no volume in pictures.
enough said, right?
and secondly, not one single person has their life perfected.
1 John 1:8 reminds me of this!
and, while i do not want to paint my life as perfect,
i do want to show that peace and joy and happiness is totally
i choose not to post on the prideful arguments that can go on between me and my husband sometimes, because i want for him to trust me! and i know that only by pride comes contention (proverbs 13:10)
and it seems like a lot of the times?
the pride is coming from myself!
and come on now, why would i want to write about that?? ha!
i also choose not to post on the times that my kids do the wrong things for the same reason.
not because they always do what's right!
but i don't ever want my kids to think that i have talked badly about them behind their backs.
i want for them to trust me more than anyone else!
so the next time you read my blog post.
please know something right now, up front.
i am not perfect.
i am not trying to portray that i am perfect.
but i do serve a perfect God,
who amazes me by the love, patience, compassion and forgiveness he has for me.
and believe me. there is a lot of forgiveness being used on ME every day!
so if you are reading this and already have a relationship with Jesus but you're still struggling with feelings of not measuring up?
let it go.
God loves you where you're at. and you know that!
lamentations 3:21-23 is one place i was reading this morning.
"this i recall to my mind, therefore i have HOPE, it is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not they are new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness!"
so do it!
bring back to your mind everything that God has done for you, and hold on to that!
and if you are reading this and you don't have a relationship with Jesus?
you are totally missing out, and you don't even realize it!
so please. please. ask me.
i would be more than happy to tell you how you can have complete JOY and PEACE in your life.
and you will never. ever. be the same.
