I when I hear Philippians 2:12-13 (Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.) I visualize a jigsaw puzzle. I love jigsaw puzzles, both literal and figurative. This blog is a glimpse of my jigsaw puzzle. It's not a ministry. I do not blog to brag on my children, my clothes, my home, my marriage or my faith. I promise to post no pictures of me to show you how modest I think I am. Honestly, I think of blogging as vain.
I haven't sought readers for years, but this week I am going to peek out from under my rock (just a little). I expect I'll get a few more hits than the usual zero.
I enjoy reading blogs by women of Christian faith, and not only those with whom I agree. I like to read about other traditions. But I do not like when:
- I am told what I believe by someone who does not share my beliefs.
- I am told what I should believe (proselytizing). Particularly proselytizing by those who are unqualified to do so.
