Are all my 5 readers tired of seeing Jean Valjean/Hugh Jackman's face when they click on my blog? Hmn. Well, maybe not. ~smile~ Can one get tired of seeing Hugh Jackman's face?
Wow, it's been awhile. I have been avoiding my blog. I have made up posts in my head, but never sat down to write them. I had a talk with two friends about closing down my blog for good. What else can I say that hasn't been said on the World Wide Web? My 7 year blogiversary passed in March. That's ancient in internet years. Can you think of anyone else who has a blog that's been around that long? There are a few of us....
Is my voice *needed* here in internet-land? Do I have time to keep this up? Am I living out my life with integrity in order to share my thoughts? Oh, so much navel-gazing.
This morning I was drying my hair and thinking about how our dear friends are having all SEVEN of my family up to their house for Memorial Day weekend. Events like that never quite happened so much after the birth of our fourth child. People don't quite know what to do with a large family overtaking their home. But..."where there is heart room, there is house room." A quote by Phyllis Stanley, a beautiful, beautiful radiant woman of the Lord. (For just a little taste of this woman's heart, read here.)
Why is hospitality such a lost art in our culture? Sometimes this makes me angry...and weary. Why won't larger families be invited to homes? Is it just larger families or is it our culture? "Where there is heart room, there is house room..."
I'm trying to "be the change." So I will keep blogging and expressing myself and preaching to myself. And I hope that my words will touch hearts deep and speak to them where the Lord might be prompting them. Is there heart room for me amidst all the internet chatter? Will you join me still on this journey of blogging? Will you read? Do you like meeeeee????
