I have such an enjoyable time blogging! Since writing isn’t one of my strong areas, I really never thought I would love it as much as I do!
But I also enjoy reading other blogs too! I learn so much and daily find inspiration in so many things! This is such a good thing because it spurs me on! Oftentimes through someone’s blog I recognize an area where I am just not doing as good of a job as I would like ~ and it helps me to see that ~ and to press forward with it! There are so many lovely women out there who are sharing about their families, being a homemaker and how they are caring for their homes, the crafts they are working on, recipes that they love, what life looks like for them, and just how much they love the Lord. What a blessing all of this has been to me! Not that we compare ourselves to one another, but I think blogging is such a wonderful opportunity to encourage one another! ♥
Another benefit for myself in blogging is to see how much more diligently I need to discipline my time! While it is not always pleasant to recognize areas of weakness, this too is such a good thing! If I want to accomplish all the things that the Lord has for me, I need to be much more carefully guarding over my time and how I am using it! I think my rise and shine time needs to be starting just a bit earlier here! ♥
While I do wish we could be more like the women in days past, chatting over the backyard fence ~ I am so thankful for the daily blessing I receive from blogs! I was thinking about all of this as I was reading the first chapter in Beautiful in God’s Eyes this past week. I love this quote by Elizabeth George ~ “Fellowship with these women who delight in living for God spurs me on in my heart’s desire to be a beautiful woman of character.” How true I am finding this to be ~ and what an encouragement!
Thank you all for the wonderful inspiration! ♥
Have a blessed start to a fresh new week!
