Captivated by Words

I've always adored reading. Words captivate my imagination and thoughts. Words delight me.

Frequently through the years I've journal-ed. Writing helps me process my thoughts, feelings, and reactions; helps me put things into perspective and set goals. So the cross over from journal to blog came naturally. Typing on a key pad is way easier for me than using a pen.

My blog is basically just my on line journal. Hopefully some people read it and can relate to what I'm writing about. Perhaps that helps them to not feel alone, or maybe they can be encouraged or inspired, or just find a kindred spirit (or even someone with whom to vent out some complaints).

I've enjoyed the insights and thoughts of others that I've received via comments. I'm grateful for the friends I've made. Sometimes in my daily life I find myself thinking about things people have said to me in the comments. I enjoy getting to read what others say on their blogs.

Proverbs 27:17 is one of my favorite Proverbs, and it reminds me of something that often takes place for me in the blogging world:

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

I've found that process of thinking and corresponding about a topic with others really does sharpen me.

I think that is my least favorite Proverb - LOL. It always reminds me of conflict - thanks for the new perspective. :)

I do find the perspectives of others enlarge my tent, thanks Tracy!

I've always thought the same thing about that verse as David and like him, I enjoy your different perspective.

I appreciate your journalling online and sharing your experiences with others.

I was talking with a close friend of mine yesterday and she was telling me that long before I joined Kingdom Bloggers, she was a reader of your blog. I know that she only reads things that inspire her.

Thanks for sharing about why you do it.

I feel that way too - my blog is my online journal - while I hope and know that it has offered hope to some people by reading, I also know it is has helped me to find my voice.
