My Oops

I am new to hosting my own web site. I haved use Blogspot and had fun doing it, but I wanted to advance in my learning so my wonderful son in law, Ben, provided me with a domain name, and a spot on wordpress.

As I have been happily posting, the other day I noticed that the storage bank of media (pictures) was getting crowded. I like to keep things limited and streamlined so in my ignorance I deleted a bunch of pictures. AHHH! I erased the pictures from my many of blog posts. Sigh. It would take hours to go find all those images and repost them so I deleted the posts that they belonged to.

I wondered if God was showing me that my blog posting is a waste of time and I should not be doing it. I prayed and asked Him if it was so and I think He brought to my mind Beatrix Potter, I have recently watched the movie about her – loved it, she was an amazing artist, her works have blessed people for generations. I’m sure there were times when she made mistakes or spilled water on an image. My little blog is my hobby, a spot where I create and share. I think the Lord told me that I should keep blogging but next time .. don’t delete the images. I love the LORD our Father and His sense of humor. Yes, LORD!  I will keep blogging but next time, I won’t delete the images.

    I’m glad you decided not to stop blogging! We just reconnected and I enjoy reading your blog! Maybe God was telling you to be watchful that your hobby doesn’t become an obsession and take over parts of your life that are more important. Just a thought. Clean out that image bin regularly, and keep things in focus and in perspective. God wants you to have a hobby to enjoy, and to share what He has given you! And I enjoy reading it! <3

      I hit “post” too soon. LOL! Keep the most important images, but delete those that are not needed and clutter up the file!

      • Thank you, DeEtte, you are giving good advice. Blogging can become time consuming so I have to try to keep it in it’s proper spot.
        I’m glad you like my blog, thanks for reading 🙂

  3. Keep blogging!! You have so much to say!
