|"The LORD is good, His mercy endures forever"|
Coloring on my swing, under my mosquito net!
After a busy weekend with a full house, it was pleasantly nice. Reminded me that having less noise has been very healing for me. About two weeks ago, I took a week off of facebook. Oh my goodness it was strangely refreshing! How many of us have done this same thing.. time and time again?
Right after Michael went to be with the Lord, I needed a place to share. Mostly on shared Instagram posts, but it was still nice. I hesitated to "take a break" because I was able to connect with other moms who have experienced stillbirths. So many mothers. So many different groups. But even in those groups it was hard. Hard to see how many people go through the similar loss everyday.
I decided after the week break to come back on... then more drama happened. I knew God was confirming it to me. While its nice to "see" what others are doing, it can be such a HUGE distraction from what God wants me to be doing at the moment. It honestly distracts me from real relationships. I have to undo the habit of even just clicking on facebook.
It can be used for good (social media)-- What a blessing it was to have so many people praying for me when we lost Michael. I know this was a HUGE support for our family! But... I also question how much God intended us to be aware of everyone else's life? A good friend of mine said, "it is an easy way for people to check in on me visually, but then you have no clue they actually did." Truth.
Anyways, I am rambling. All this to say, I will be doing updates here on my blog. This way I am not distracted with more noise.
I am actually praying more.
Making shutterfly family albums again.
and Coloring more with my kids.
I will look at instagram here and there, but thats about it.
Heard a hashtag this week and loved it: #thestruggleisrealbutsoisGod
