One reason I’m attracted to blogging is because I love to read and write. Blogging lets me do both. Tonight I stopped by Ann Kroeker’s blog. She posted a great post (isn’t that redundant?) about choosing to experience life. Experiencing life brings “material” for your writing. It’s more important than the writing. Honestly, I’m not going to try to explain it anymore. You can just read her post, it’s great.
As I read her blog, I thought, “That’s me this weekend!” I’ve purposed that I will blog everyday. It keeps some order in my life. But, these last 2 days haven’t been full of blogging or reading or writing. It’s been full of “life experience”.
I had 11 people in my house today to practice for a puppet show we’re doing for some kids in downtown Atlanta on Easter weekend.
I went to a small group Bible Study tonight and watched a grown man get emotional about the sacrifice Jesus made for him.
I watched The Amazing Race with 4 of my best friends.
I had my sisterchicks over to my house to watch a chick-flick and eat eclairs.
I worked in my front yard with my husband and daughter.
I slept late this morning and in between dreams, heard my husband and daughter eating breakfast together.
These are small events that can just make up your weekend, or be experiences that form not just your writing, but form your life, who you are and what you become. Thanks, Ann for helping me mull over my weekend and savor each moment!
