I know that by the title comparing gets you nowhere. I learned that phrase in my premarital classes. Anytime I'm actually criticizing something, I realize that I've thrown myself right into the middle of my view of someone else's situation.
Let's take blogging for example. I look at other mom blogs and wonder why I can't write about enjoying fall with the pumpkin projects and autumn aromas and such. I just don't write like that. But something within me wants to write so that other moms will want to come to my blog and get tips or something.
My prayer for me this morning is to not "dance for men's eyes." (this is a great song on an old album by Charlie and Nathan.)
I may not have a lot of recipes, housecleaning tips, disciplining wisdom, etc... but I sure have no problem being transparent and sharing about the refining taking place in my heart. May I not compare today!
