I went to my old Blogspot page and deleted it. I planned on coming here and doing the same. If I could have figured out how to do that, this blog may have been eliminated too.
When I was really into reading and writing blogs, one of the things I looked forward to was a couple of blogs a week being routinely posted by my friends. When a blogger went weeks between posts…I’d lose interest, or forget to check them. The very thing that bothered me is what I have done. A blog written every few months, in my opinion…is a neglected blog.
Now I’m trying to determine if I’ve neglected my blog or just totally forsaken it. Truth be told, Facebook has replaced blogging for me. It covers more people in one fast click of the mouse. It’s my lazy woman’s version of keeping in touch. I get headlines instead of stories. A wave instead of a hug.
I have found my self wanting to re-connect with my blogging friends. How are the kids and grands? Any issues I should pray for? Do you just want to air a frustration, I’ll be a friendly ear to hear it.
Every month one person in a group of friends (who met blogging) give a blog prompt for the month. so far I have not written on any of the prompts. This month’s is from 2 Timothy 4:2 …be prepared in season and out of season. Being prepared takes commitment. I realized I didn’t want to commit. Not only did I not want to commit to blogging, but I’ve found that to be a more recurring pattern in my life in general. We need to be prepared to correct, rebuke and encourage. Preparation requires a life open to receiving God’s instruction. That requires commitment. I see a pattern here.
In my non committal way….I resist saying that I will once again be a regular blogger. But, someone much greater, God himself, instructs – even urges me to be prepared. I can’t see being prepared without commitment. I will trust Him for the commitment within myself that completes my preparation.
