Funny title, but it's a thought that comes across my mind often when blogging or posting on Instagram.
Some days I wonder why I blog and post on Instagram- Is this all about me? Grandma didn't post a photo of her three layered cake every Christmas. But then I think of how many people have inspired me through blogging and Instagram. Some blog posts leave me feeling refreshed and ready to tackle my house again. It's just the nudge I need at times. God wants us to be creative and to use the gifts He has given us. And that's what keeps me going. While a blog may seem glorious with photos and words- It's been stretching for me. I am a quiet person that is not good at expressing my feelings in group setting. I have finally tackled the ever present worry about people taking me wrong- and just blogging about what I love to do.
So if my Grandma had instagram... she'd have 5,000,000 followers. But she doesn't have instagram and so not everyone knows how awesome she is. But what matters is that God knows it along with her family and friends who deeply appreciate her for who she is. So 'be' who you would be without instagram or a blog to post on. Be the godly, caring, intentional person God has created you to be.
Savor each season of life just like you savor an apple dumpling in the fall- for it may not last long.
