Many of you know that I am Pastor's Kid & Pastor's wife. I love a lot about being in the ministry, but 1 thing I do not care for is privacy....or the lack of privacy.
In November, God began to speak into my heart about living a "quiet life." This is a task that is hard for me to do.... I am an "open book" or so, I was until I had my babies...... but it is a task I must take for my family & my heart to be safe in my home.
I gave up Facebook a while ago because I was letting people into my home that weren't invited. My daddy who is very, very, wise.... talked with me about Facebook & the scary side of it. I believe there is no accountability with our words on Facebook & twitter for that matter. (at least we have to keep it short on twitter.)
My sister, Libby, & I have been talking about going PRIVATE on our blog for quite some time. We have talked about it for a couple months & different reasons we would want to....
1. I'm not trying to be a TOP blogger. This is a personal blog & a personal blog means this.
That is just what I want to have this blog for....personal blog....
Libby and I have been hearing in the news about how unwanted guests stumble on our blog.... especially ones with pictures of kids. People stealing your stuff, pictures, etc.
No. I am not ending this open blog with fear, but this is something that I need to do for my family & my private life.
2. Growing up in the parsonage, My mom always called it... "Fish Bowl Living." With Whitney Houston passing just recently, (i adore her.) ...the talk about what people were expecting from her... how they were cruel and rude from her "latest album being a flop." Rumors say that that's what caused her to step into drugs, alcohol, etc.
While I am not about to get into a heated debate about her "cause of death." (which I have my own opinions on this matter) My eyes are opened. Kevin Costner's speech at her funeral still sticks with me today. i cry when I think about his words, "Whitney, I hope now you will see you were good enough!"
Even Whitney Houston didn't think she was good enough........
In this quiet season of my life, I am taking a step back from things. No Facebook. Private blog. Private twitter.
I must say this is a "long time coming"..... The books that I have been reading lately have really set this in place even more.
All in All....
Less time worrying about "being good enough" in the world's eyes..... More time walking towards heaven.
So, If you would like to still be 1 of my readers & I haven't scared you off. ;)
