By chance I read an online interview where the mom being interviewed mentioned some of the things I do in my home. It wasn't nasty in anyway but she portrayed what I do as something that made her feel inadequate as a mom to her own children.

I have only a handful of blogs that I follow, a few more that I read intermittently. Besides for 1, they are all close friends of mine and I know their struggles behind their "shopfront" blog. We all struggle...the Bible promises us that we live in this world as aliens until we go to our Heavenly home and with this life comes struggles...I just do not choose to share them on my blog.
When I read peoples blogs that show their fabulous knitting projects I normally have one of two reactions:
1. Someday I will knit like that!
2. Gosh she is talented!

The thing is that if we read other peoples blogs and are continually feeling bad about ourselves then I believe the Enemy is using those blogs to bring death and defeat into your life and home. My advice: stop reading blogs and live YOUR life.
1 Thessalonians 4:11 instructs us to "mind our own business" and Titus 2:5 instructs woman to: "to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good". I believe that blog reading has it's place. I am often inspired to try something new in food, lifestyle or garden because of what I have read somewhere. There is no wrong in that - it's the virtual backyard fence that we as woman can chat and learn from one another.

We should always be willing to grow, to change, to try something good that is new. Don't let comparisons hold you captive and stop you living, and enjoying YOUR life in your home, with your family and in your particular circumstances.
Stepping down from my soapboax...how do you feel?
