On this blog I get some of what I call hate mail from time to time.
I understand that I seem to post on politics and religion . You might say by doing so I'm asking for it.
After the Halloween post I got some emails that weren't very nice. I had to re-read my post to make sure I didn't come off as judgemental. I simply asked some questions and stated that I have a conviction.
I DO not think you are bad if you dressed your kids up or not etc......
In fact I did end up dressing mine up and we went to the church carnival. I was just stating that I do feel a little convicted about it and wanted to put the question out there to hear your take on it. I enjoyed all different views and even said that I feel that it is up to YOU and YOUR family and your own convictions. Will we dress up next year? I'm not sure. I will pray about it.
Please know that I am not perfect and don't think I am. I fail daily at being a Christian and raising my kids. I am just a mom trying to serve Jesus with all my heart and am trying to do the best I can at raising my kids to know Him.
And I'm sure you are too....
We are not a perfect family and we don't claim to be!
We may not agree on things but again this is my blog. I know people say to stay away from religion and politics but I believe that the world is what it is today:( because we as Christians are too afraid of offending someone.
We need to take a stand on things we believe in.
I'm not shoving it down your throats, I did not make you visit this blog.
After posting pictures of my kids in rainbow peace pj's not thinking anything of it...
I got 6 emails.
Not so nice!
I know I shouldn't let it bug me...
To be honest I go back and forth with this blog.
Why am I doing it?
Why not just do a private blog?
Why do I need strangers knowing my business?
Or why not just scrapbook?
Why do you blog?
I'm thinking of closing this down or maybe setting it to private.
I have been going back and forth for a long time but this last week I have really been praying about it.
I don't need the negative feedback. I don't know if I like putting my family out there anymore.
I don't like the fact that people come to look at this blog just to find the wrong in me.
Do I need this? NO
But then my husband reminded me of all the sweet friends I've made and all the opportunities that we have been given because of this blog. The positive emails I've had from people that have found this blog because it was public.
I'm torn????? I don't know what to do.....
Do you blog private or public? Why or why not? Do you talk religion or politics? Why or why not?
Do you share pictures of you kids on public blogs? Why or why not?
I'm honestly just asking, I'm not saying anyone is right or wrong here!
