It’s been a little over a week since I started Still Learning Something New. I am humbled that I’ve had views, a few e-mail followers, and received wonderful, encouraging comments. I’m proud that I’m in the process of overcoming my computer-phobia and learning how to blog instead of only reading others. Really, friends, this is a huge step for me.
In my past life (not a in a Shirley McClain kind of way, but in the before marriage and children kind of way) I studied journalism in college. In fact, my folks spent thousands of dollars to see I got educated to write and be published. However, college was a “FAIL”. Those dollars were wasted. I lost brain cells instead of filling up the ones I had. I hurt me and I hurt my parents. I’ve been ashamed and I have always thought they were too. They were very educated. My older siblings have degrees. Success was expected.
After all those years I am finally committed to writing daily, I’ve finally been published. People from around the world have read what I said. It’s mind blowing. I wish my parents could know.
I don’t imagine that they have WiFi in Heaven. There is so much sin and sadness over the internet and NO sin and sadness in Heaven that I don’t think those there would even want it. However, since “all things are possible with God” , my prayer is that my Mom and Dad know that it all wasn’t a waste. I’d love for Jesus to let them read what I’ve written. And for Him to show them that “view map” on the stats board. I’d like them to see the pics of the chalk board wall, too. Mom would love that idea.
Also, I pray for those of you reading now that whatever your needs are that they will be met. And that we all will be able to do something that glorifies and pleases He who made us and saved us.
. many blessings, betty jo
Betty Jo, I can’t tell you how nice it was to hear that I am not the only one fighting “computer- phobia”. This is a new endeavor for me too, strangely foreign and familiar at the same time. Writing is natural to me, but this world inside this screen I’m staring at, not so much.
Kris, I’m so glad you stopped by for a visit. I have 3 older kids to help me break through the computer-phobia. I hope you have good help, too. betty jo
Betty Jo, thanks so much for stopping by my site. I am a homeschooling Mom of 6 and truth be told, they have taught me all I know about this online world. So nice to meet you!
Amen! Well said!
Thanks, Joyce for visiting my blog, and also for the encouraging comment.
