I know it's been awhile, but this week I'm linking up with Lisa Jo for 5 minute Friday.
This weeks word:: paint
As I mentioned yesterday, my mind has been a whirlwind of thoughts, ideas and emotions. These past few months have been wrought with lots of change and with change came loads of emotions. Some days it feels like God has been stretching me in every direction all at once, making it so that the only way I can make it through the day is if I look to Him and Him alone.
These tornados of change have really skewed my view of the blogging the world and my place in it. I think that sometimes as bloggers, we get stuck the picture perfect computer reality. We forget that life is messy, broken and even trying at times. We aim to paint that perfect picture that displays how we've got it all together even though our true reality is screaming something entirely different. I feel we need to break the mold of the picture perfect computer reality and paint the true picture of computer reality. Let's paint with all the colors in our palette, not the just the pretty jewel tones and pastels. Let's paint with the dark blues, the chocolate browns and the forest greens because there is beauty in brokenness and restoration in truth.
