In three years of blogging, you can imagine I’ve gotten feedback. Most of it’s positive, but there have been a few naysayers. One guy even said… Well, let’s leave that unsaid. (Consider the source.)
Others have voiced that they prefer the funny blogs. I suppose I could allay such responses if I were to divide and conquer: like having four blogs: one for those wanting spiritual depth, one for worldwide wanderings, definitely one for rants! Oh, and another for that guy who’s just looking for a laugh.
Sure, I’ve considered it. But isn’t that defeating the purpose of a Web Log? Life has its ups and downs. And I Log them… on the Web. ‘Not sure why, really: my motives change with my moods.
I like knowing folks are still tuning in. Some have been reading (even off-and-on) with me since 2010. [By the way, this makes you my friend; it means a lot.] But if you’re looking for a guaranteed laugh, you might try Cosby or Colbert. If you want consistent depth, I recommend you read Ryle. But if you agree that variety is the spice of life, come to Laura’s Blog: I’m here for ya’.
Everyone has dry spells, and I’m no exception. However, during these times I continue to post. You see, back in the days of snail mail, I committed the repulsive sin of painting a positive—which is hypocrisy.
All that said, I want to announce—a friend brought me the Good Word last week: a gentle and gracious reminder of a focus on Christ. Keeping joy is not that difficult if we have our eyes in the right Place.
Then another friend reminded me of a well-known quote:
Worry looks around
Fear looks back
Faith looks up
Guilt looks down
But I look forward.
I’ll add one here: Love looks out (for others). … Like I said: I’m here for ya’.
