I did it.
I made a Pinterest account. (Smile). I put it off for a year because it seemed like another time-sucking activity. I was also a little afraid. I confess that new technological stuff scares me. What if I mess up?
But fear is: False Evidence (of things) Appearing Real
The sky didn’t fall when I made the account nor did my computer blow up.
I made boards of inspirational quotes, pretty rooms I would love to sit inside, my favorite things such as pansies, geraniums, and dogwood trees, and yummy healthy food with colorful pictures.
My pins make me happy. Funny. I have a new happy place.
But I also love seeing what makes my friends happy.
Pinterest is another place where we can share who we are and hope to add something good to someone else’s life too. Though the boards we make are all about what we like, if you share them, it’s not about you anymore.
It’s not about you.
If we walk this life focused on ourselves we will be miserable. Joy will be hard to find. Happy places will quickly lose their specialness.
What’s my point?
Bless someone else today whether it’s through your social media networks, in the grocery line, or while waiting to pick up your child at school.
Bless someone today, tomorrow, everyday. Wake up, get on your knees and ask for the assignment. It might come later on in the day, but it will come.
I’m hoping the Bible reading plan will encourage you (us) this week to live our lives this way.
How’s the Knee Challenge going? We’re on Day 7! Is it becoming a habit yet?
Below is the reading plan for this week. Copy it down or visit this post everyday to find the reading for the day.
Grab a journal. Light a candle. Pour some coffee.
