The Joy of the Blogging Community

I feel like all of my blog posts are me oohing and awing over all the things Evelyn is doing. Milestones she's meeting or her constant cuteness. This seems to especially be true of my Monday Bits of Splendor posts.

It's because that's where I am at right now. Right this second my life is all about asking for God's guidance and help as I try to be the best mother and wife possible. While also working on my own personal faults that are holding me back. This little life I have at home with my baby and hubby is pretty all consuming.

Sometimes I fear I'm too wrapped up in just what goes on in my little home. That's when I try to check myself and pray for the people around me that I don't see on a daily basis or even those I've never seen or maybe never will.

I think that is a constant struggle for all of us. It's far too easy to get wrapped up in your own life and forget that  other people are going through life too and there life might not be as easy as our own.

That's one of the reasons why I have loved the blogging community so much. It gives me a glimpse into someone else's life. A glimpse into their joys and their sorrows. Their struggles and their victories. It helps me keep my focus in check. It helps to look outside of myself and remember there are others going through this life we have on earth. Our stories aren't always the same or in some cases they aren't at all alike.

It's the small similarities or the huge differences that I feel really bring us together as a community. It those similarities and differences that help us to encourage and come alongside one another.

I started blogging for a creative outlet. Something that was just for me. But I have gotten so much more out of it then I could have ever dreamed.

Blogger friends, thank you for being so awesome! I've loved getting to know each and everyone of you!

Now for my obligatory cute picture of Evelyn. Oh and that little cutey has just started to wave hello, it's the cutest thing ever!

Happy Monday!

Linking up with Laura@Bits of Splendor again!



  1. Awww well well said good friend...

    I think anything, including our kids, that pulls our minds and hearts away from the Lord too much is a sign that we are too focused on something else. God even comes before our kids, so it's a matter of the heart, that's all! Share share share, God sees your heart!!! It's good that you have this awareness Liza, very wise.

  2. Blogging is truly an amazing way to share your life with people who truly care and will take the time to read it. Such a great feeling. Facebook who?! Blogger is where it's at :)
