Most of you know, that aside from a few posts regarding my husband and my son, that this blog is mainly about "frivolous" things.
Don't get me wrong, fashion, cooking, and home decor are fun, creative outlets that, if not obsessing over them, are harmless.
I find that there are times when it is difficult for me to keep things in perspective. Why do I sometimes spend more time scouring the Internet for vintage chandeliers than I do in my bible?
Why do I ponder what I am going to wear to dinner on Friday more than I do asking God what I am supposed to be doing for Him?
Yes, these deep thoughts are stemming from somewhere.
Twice in the last week I have read gut wrenching stories via the blog world.
First, Megan's story, which had me sobbing for hours.
Next, Marija's story, that hit me at my core.
My heart aches for these families, and I hope that as time goes by, I will still remember to pray for them often.
I can say that daily, I am filled with gratitude for what God has done in my life.
However, I want to be better at being grateful.
Some things that I am so grateful for:
My amazing friends
Power (after 30 plus hours of not having it this week, I am beyond grateful)
The Lord's provision
Don't worry. I'll be back to my regular posts about Birkin's, Nicole Richie, and my love affair with Smitten Kitchen--but sometimes it's good to get a bit serious every now and then.
