I've written about this before but the subject of blogging still fascinates me. If one stops to think of it, blogging has been around only a nanosecond in the history of the world.
It is quite hard for me to believe I have now been blogging for over 1 1/2 years now. My hearts desire has been to share any wisdom found through trials, great books, my obsession with a good cup of coffee, the beauty of "tea time", and mostly that God is real. Yes, He is...
There was a day when the generations lived together and the older taught the younger by their day to day activities. I often smile when I watch various Italian cooking shows. It seems they all talk about what Mama or Grannie (Italian equivalent) cooked and how she taught each of them carefully to roll out dough or carefully cut the pasta.
Families today are often isolated from those around them as well as each other. Church can be the most isolated place in the week with children going one direction, adults another, and teens in yet another part of the building. (Not as much in my present church but definitely when we were in a much larger congregation.)
I have never been in one of my neighbor's houses. Granted I don't have a lot of neighbors but when you share a country lane, you'd think you would... Come to think of it, when we had a large house in a suburban neighborhood, there were just a few doors I'd seen on the other side.
I believe that is part of the reason people love blogs. We truly do... as C.S. Lewis is quoted... read to know we are not alone.
I thought this an excellent post about blogging by Abraham Piper at Desiring God. Although it is written for pastors, the content is applicable for any Christian who wants to be Salt & Light to the world.
