You know that feeling like when you take of your bra at the end of the day or when you've eaten so much that you have to unbutton your already too tight pants to breathe...what? You never had that problem? Uh, neither did I...(clear throat), yeah, I am the epitome of self control in my eating...yeah, uh I just heard about it from a friend. :)
But what my blathering is trying to express it that I now feel so much less pressure. I don't have the time for guest posts, for linking to and networking on all these other blogs as much as it is suggested. I do have some blogs that are written by friends or that I really enjoy and connect with that I will follow. I am content to be just me and let God be God and use me...to prayerfully encourage someone, but I know it will be me who finds encouragement as I watch and listen for Him in moving and working my heart. Plus, I don't want blogging to become a job that weighs on my schedule, on my mind and on my life. I want to live my life and spend my time with my husband, with my children and with the people that I love. The writing, I pray, will be a natural overflow of what God is doing in the midst of all that and my constant need to to seek Him in it. I hope you, too, will live the life He has given you and that we will seek Him together.
I thank the Lord for reminding me of this today and over the last month and I thank and link to Proverbs 31 ministries today, not because I am looking for connections, but because I want to share with you how the Lord spoke to me this morning. He is good. I'm thankful He woke me up early, I'm thankful for refocus and I am thankful for a day with my kids.
