Journaling My Opinions
As my pastor said once, we have a very high opinion of our opinions. This is quite true of me and is the cause for me keeping my mouth shut and not blogging as much as I used to. That and the fact that it’s warm here and I like to be outside…
Anyway, I was telling my husband the other day that I’ve been holding back on my blog because I have dear friends who I strongly disagree with on certain issues. If I blog about them it wouldn’t be because I felt a need to attack them but I am afraid maybe they would take offense.
Now, these aren’t black and white biblical issues or I wouldn’t feel the desire to keep my mouth shut. These are my opinions – totally based on scripture but, like I said, not black and white.
My husband said I shouldn’t stop blogging about what I believe. He said that if somebody got their feelings hurt because of my convictions, that’s their problem and not mine. He has a point. My blog is my journal. If others choose to read my journal that’s fine with me because I have intentionally opened it up to the world. But it’s still my journal and I should be journaling my truth – not just what I think other people want to read.
So, it starts again. A brave new season of blogging. Feel free to argue with me if you want – just as long as you’re friendly I’ll post your comments. I’ve been working on being a graceful responder to opposition and could use the practice (I’ve been pretty bratty at this in the past – another one of those convictions I’ll be writing about).
Please note that I mean nothing personal when I blog! I know some of you have taken what I write personally because you’ve left me little notes to say so or emails that give me what-for.
But, our homeschooling, lotsa kids life is ours, not yours.
