The Cross Eyed Blog Is Two Years Old

As hard as it is to imagine, The Cross Eyed Blog reached its two year point a few weeks ago and here I am still writing.  It would seem that I would have run out of ideas or things to talk about in that amount of time, but somehow God always seems to convict me one way or another of a subject to write about.

A friend asked me last week if I ever get tired of it.  Honestly speaking, yes.  I do get weary sometimes of doing the task, but I know God has called me to it.  I am certain of that, but for how long?  During those spells of burnout, I always turn to God in prayer.  Do you still want me to do this?  Does it even matter what I have to say anyway?  Please let me know what you want me to do.

Every time I have been at that point, that day or at least within a week, I will get emails, comments, or someone who comes up to me to tell me how the blog has changed something in their lives.  A woman who is now committed to reading her bible every day.  A person who has been encouraged during a hard time in her life.  A tip that allows a stay at home mom to run her home more effectively.  In those moments, I can see that God can use this blog to go beyond anything I could do on my own and to reach people I could never meet.

I have to admit it scares me to death sometimes.  Matthew 12:36, ESV says, "I tell you, on the day of judgement people will give account for every careless word they speak."  Who am I to write anything to anyone?  It is very important for me to write truth or what I think to be the truth according to what God has shown me and His word.

Thank God that He is there amongst my doubts.  Will there be a third year of blogging?  Only God knows, but I will continue to follow as long as He leads it.

  1. I read it every time. Your variety makes it useful and relevant to all ages. "mom" tips don't apply to me, but they are usually great ideas that I can apply for organization even as NOT a mom yet!

    1. Thanks Blair! I am glad you enjoy it and can use some of the ideas. Maybe I should change the name from "mom tips" to "monthly tips", because lots of them don't have anything to do with being a mom. They are more just tips to use around the house, get organized, etc. Something to think about. Give my love to your family!
