Another reason is the ups and downs of life. Look how these jeans are hung. They go up and down. Our lives are that way at times and this blog shares life with other people. Fellowship via Internet. The good Lord wants us to fellowship with each other, love each other and encourage each other.
When I glance at this picture I also see different seasons of life that we are all in. Some are in a season of life to teach others where they have already been. Some are in a season to encourage others while they are in the same place. Sometimes, just knowing that other people have some of the same circumstances is enough to get you through a season of life. It's so easy to get into a pity party, "if only this or that......" We've all been there plenty of times.
Yet another thought is......sometimes you feel the grass is greener on the other side. But, this picture shows that it is just as green on one as the other. Look at what you have and just be grateful. I always tell my kids, a thankful heart is a happy heart. You have a choice everyday with what you do with your attitude. Life is about perspectives and priorities. Blogging helps me to reflect on good/bad times that I can share or what God has placed on my heart to share with others. That one person reading might need to hear those very words that God lead me to type.
Being a 'blogger' sometimes reveals my heart, which is hard for me to do. (grammar has never been my best friend) Blogging means being real. Have you ever wondered why you can't get enough of other peoples blogs' sometimes? I think people crave realism. They want truth. Reading someone else's blog is like reading their heart. That is being real. God wants us to know His heart and to know that His love is real. So, reading the Bible would then possibly be like reading His blog, right? :o)
Well, I guess that is why I blog. I love sharing things about my family also. It's a way for my family and friends to keep up with us. Which is hard enough for me to do sometimes! :o)
