I'm sure some of you might of thought it was because we are busy changing up our house, and while that is true; so many not so positive thoughts encompass by brain about blogs and the blogging world. I used to think that it was great to sit and read other people's blogs and see how they lived life. But recently I've been slightly disturbed by the post's I've been reading. I've actually been avoiding writing this post for almost 2 weeks just because I didn't want it to be wrote in anger or haste.
I'm sure you've seen them, the perfect mom blog.... she gets everything done, all her pictures are 'picture' perfect, her house is always clean, her husband is always home at a decent hour, family dinners are so pleasant & each moment of their perfect life is plastered on the family blog for all the world to see.
**Granite: I've posted some and will in the future where things look good, and it maybe LOOKS like we have our ducks in a row, but reality is life is messy. Pictures are just moments in time, where time stood still. Maybe the kids were sleeping or at Nana's house and the house was perfectly clean for 10 minutes. Or you just finished a project and it's photograph ready... But perfection after perfection, not even a 'toy' in the back ground of one single picture.... COME ON !!! Let's get REAL !!!
My sister calls me the Pinterest Mom, and I'm very honored but I don't want every moment to be pin-able, I want my life to be memorable.
I just wanted to clear the air and get that out there while I still can explain myself... I'm looking forward to editing and posting a lot of post's I've written in the last 2+ weeks, not worrying about what people have to say. And probably in the fall will put together some project update posts... I will do what I can here at livinginhismercyandgrace... Our plate is full and that's how I like it, God has been good to us and keeps us going in the right direction to bring his glory and will to surface in our lives; and we are so thankful for that.
What was the straw that broke the camel's back ?
I thank my Pastor for sharing it on Facebook.
