There are a few obstacles in my little bloggy path, the biggest is that I feel
and this blog feels so big sometimes,
especially when I see that people actually read it
(oh, my stars, that f r e a k s me out)
And? When someone says that something meant something to her or him, I go numb.
Who am I to help anyone when I'm such a MESS?!
When I'm being a scaredy-cat coward, I consider creating an anonymous blog. But I won't.
I need this blog, personally. It helps keep my thoughts on the "just, pure, lovely." I need the perspective those happy thoughts bring. I need the healing that comes. Just Pure Lovely, the blog, was created from this ancient Scripture verse:
Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
For three years, "just, pure, lovely" has been the focus of this blog. Now, I need to add "true" and "honest."
What does that mean? Not much. I won't change the blog title or anything that drastic. I just want to be a little more transparent, a little less like Little Miss Perfect who has everything just. so (I so don't have everything just so). I want to be more honest about things, and not worry so much about who is reading this blog (it's the ones I know who frighten me so) .
Instead, I want to come across as
Me… A 'Me'ss who is Not. Perfect. but who is trying her Very Best to
think on the just, pure, and lovely.
So…now that I've made it clear that I'm not perfect, and now that you know that I know that you know I'm not perfect (see? I just made it obvious that I'm not), I'm ready to get back to blogging.
I sure have missed it!
(p.s. the verse quoted is found in the Bible, Philippians 4:8)
