Postaday 2011 and What I Have Learned

      Dear readers,

      I am sorry I missed yesterday. I spent 18 hours in bed sleeping! Something got a hold of me and wouldn’t let go. I crashed. Anyway I am back today though I have to admit I am still a little pekid.

     I tend to look at life from the view-point of a student.I believe everything that happens has a purpose, a lesson to teach. When I took up the challenge to post every single day I knew it would teach me something about myself and about the world. I didn’t realize what it would bring out in me.

     Like most things in my life now blogging is on a schedule. A schedule I have been sort of unfaithful too. If I had been faithful to it my post for yesterday and today would have been done well before I succumbed to the plague. I have learned that God is calling me to a new level of discipline.

     I have also learned that I am given to perfectionism. Every time I woke up yesterday my first thought was “I should be blogging! Everyone’s going to hate me!” I know stupid…right? But not getting it right the first time really frosts me. That’s why I give up.

     I was really tempted this morning to give up the challenge and tell you all I was going back to posting three times a week; But then I thought, “No way! I am going to rise above this challenge and learn the lessons God has to teach me through postaday 2011.”

What lessons has God been teaching you?
