I have a confession to make. Change weirds me out. I haven't written on my blog in a bit. One morning, I opened blogger and my nicely managed everyday blogger interface had changed. The setup was different, the way to post was different, I couldn't just open my page and see what I wanted to see. So, I closed the page and let my frustration at learning something new take over the need to write everyday. All of the pictures I had taken to upload were just sitting on my camera, waiting. All the thoughts that usually careen around my head, bouncing off the corners, just waiting to be poured out here, waited. My mom said why aren't you writing on as the snow fell? I thought I didn't have anything to write. The truth is I was scared of the changes and I let fear rule me for awhile.
A morning went by, then many mornings and I read my devotionals and then checked my FB and email, then I close the laptop and go about my day. Months of not writing is now built up and I this morning, it hits me. Maybe I am ready for some change.
