I’m currently pondering the content of blog posts and the wisdom of disclosure in such an abstract context. (can you tell I’ve been to L’abri recently?) I think the answer is more thinking, ‘why I am posting this?’, before I post. More questions such as: Am I communicating something I should really communicate to an actual person instead? Am I disclosing too much? Do I love the control and impersonality of this medium a little too much? Am I writing to impress? Am I writing to chastise someone I should really just talk to?

Posting here can build relationship or quickly become an idol factory, it can be creative or create a weird version of me. There are dangers and joys to using pretty much anything I think. But you know, I still love this space to plonk things I love, quotes I like and wibbly random thoughts. But I need to be wise. I find that hard. So. With more care. Blogging resumes. (Even if it’s just to give Mum something to read in the day..) Watch the pretty video. Watch.

    re blogging – I think you’re right that there are dangers and joys to everything and it’s good to stop and take stock every now and then….I’m glad you’re keeping going ๐Ÿ™‚ isn’t it amazing how God can take your random thoughts and direct them into another life (like mine!) at just the right time to direct/hone/challenge….our God is amazing.

    There’s always a cup of tea for you in Cockfosters should you ever travel north again….
