Why I Haven’t Been Writing

Oh dear.

So this is either going to make a lot of sense or open a big ol’ can of worms.  Or both.

I quit writing because more people that I know and see in real life, face-to-face, have started following my Facebook page for this website. After I realized who some of the people were that were reading what I wrote, and had been going back to read everything I’ve written, I started to clam up.  I told myself it was out of respect for those people.  They might not like what I write, they might not agree with my opinions, and they might say something about it.  Most of my blogging life I didn’t have to worry about anyone I knew in real life reading it. Now, it’s different.

I love Jesus! I love to talk about Jesus! I know that not everyone is going to agree with my beliefs, and I will not agree with everyone else all the time.  I attend a church that is very conservative, in fact I was raised in this church as was my husband.  We are not that conservative.  We do not believe everything that our church, including our family, believes and I have felt like I can’t write because of it.

I’ve decided to start writing again. I have decided that we are all adults/grown-ups/big people, whatever you want to call us, and if we can’t all get along then quite frankly…get off of my page. (Hey Hey You You Get Off of My Page (Cloud). Are you singing it too?) It’s that simple.

Again, I am not going to be trying to be disrespectful in anyway. I am just going to be me.  I am just going to keep on sharing, and who knows what that will be. I hope that a few of you will stick with me.

So, be prepared. I’m ready to write.  But right now, I have to go feed the cows.

Until next time. Pray for me. I’m praying for you.

    Say what you feel led to say….God will give you the words. I feel the same and haven’t written what I know I am supposed to write. Just get started and it will work itself out. Hugs and prayers.

    Love this honesty! You are you and don’t change that for anyone. Keep blogging and be yourself for the world to see. I can’t wait to read more!

    I could have written your line ” I attend a church that is very conservative, in fact I was raised in this church as was my husband. We are not that conservative. We do not believe everything that our church, including our family, believes… except my ending would be… and I have felt like I can’t be myself because of it.

    Love you and please don’t stop blogging!!

    These Muslims are now making Europe more conservative. The more assaults and rapes that occur, the more liberals become conservative. Remember, a liberal is a conservative who hasn”t been assaulted.
