Reading blogs is entertaining, it makes me feel connected and .....it sucks me in. Just like Facebook. ( If you think you don't have addiction problems, just join Facebook and your family may never see you again. But I digress.)
The blogging world, for me, can be very dangerous.
First of all it steals my time. You know, you sit down at 9:05 and the next think you know it's 10: 40 and you have accomplished NOTHING in your house but you do know what Dianne is cooking for Sunday dinner, how Lind's knee is doing, what Kecia did this past weekend and what kind of coffee creamer Mer is using these days. All fun information but it did not help me get my t0-do list done. A Proverbs 31 woman would not waste as much time as I have reading blogs!
It also sometimes affects my contentment. It is very easy for me to look at someone else's life and feel envy.... they live in a place where you get to experience all 4 seasons, they get to shop at Target and Walmart and Trader Joe's (whatever the heck that is) all the time, they get to see their family during the holidays, etc. etc. etc. I become so discontent at times that I become ungrateful for all the many blessings in my life.
So, I say all of that to say I recognize that I need to be a better steward of my time....."to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home....." Titus 2:5.
