Well that is what has been weighing on mind and heart. It seems that my time away from my blog has slowly been increasing. I hadn't been feeling the joy and contentment that I had in the past with blogging.
I took time to step back and to evaluate the reason I was feeling this way. One thing that stuck out to me was that some of my reading choices may not have been the best. Now I am not saying that there was anything wrong with the content. It was just content that didn't leave me feeling good about myself.
I am sure we have made a stop at a blog that leaves you feeling like you are not good enough. This person makes everything from scratch, this person can take a piece of string and have her living room looking like it should be in a magazine, this person shops at 10 stores with 10 kids spends $5, home schools and still has a spotless home with dinner on the table each night. Then there are the blogs that have tons of followers and make me feel like my little bit of space doesn't matter much. I know that you get the picture.
Matthew 6:19-21 is a scripture that I keep coming to while thinking about this. Why was really blogging? In all honestly it isn't for comments, followers or fame. For where your treasure is there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21
What things do I really treasure? The answer was here all along, right up in the header of my blog.... Faith; an on going, ever growing relationship with my Lord and Savior. Family; the people that I love and cherish. Home; a place that I hope is cozy, warm and a refuse from the crazy world around us.
So, the questions is will I keep blogging? After reading this post and the comments today I knew the answer was Yes. I will blog for the reason I first began. A place to share what is on my mind, heart, what is happening in my life and a scrapbook of sorts for the ones I treasure.
