My family has a private blog that I use to blog about what’s going on around here. You know, to keep them all updated since none of our family lives near here. My uncle started this blog and encouraged everyone to use it. Mostly, it’s just me. My uncle posts sometimes but usually I feel like I’ve overtaken this blog. I know my family doesn’t mind because they like to read it. So I started my own blog and since then, I have only posted one thing on the family blog. My mom mentioned something about this to me. I responded by saying that I didn’t really think anyone read it except my one uncle.
She explained: “You have a wonderful opportunity to be a witness to your family. They have always thought that we forced you to live the way we do, the way that is obedient to Christ. Through your writing, you can show them otherwise- even if it is just one uncle.”
She’s right. If I can be a witness to just one person, it’s worth it! It reminds me of the parable of the lost sheep and the lost coin.
Lesson: Moms have a little more wisdom than daughters.
