Blogging is a great thing. It is a powerful tool to reach numerous people with one minor strike of a key. It does, of course, hold some negative effects, one of those being the addictive power it can hold.
There are days when I find myself sucked into the blogosphere as a means of procrastination. I work really hard at not sitting at the computer all day because that’s not healthy for anyone; but some days, when I’m in a tired or lazy mood, I do tend to slack a little.
I am a work in progress.
There are a few blogs that I permit myself to read every single day. I try not to alot any more than 15 minutes of blog reading time most days, and, for the most part, I do a pretty good job of that (save for the aforementioned slacker days…)
One of the blogs I read faithfully is My Charming Kids. If you haven’t yet discovered this site, I highly recommend you check it out. Jennifer (or McKMama) is a brilliant writer, witty, a great mom, an encourager, a godly woman and she’s in need of prayer.
And this is what I love about blogs. Since she and her husband discovered the very serious nature of their son’s heart problem in the womb, the world – yes, I said world – has mobilized in prayer for their son. And we have witnessed miracle after miracle in that little boy’s life.
Stellan is now 9 months old and he is sick again. Will you pray? Will you allow this thing called the internet be used for good and cry out on behalf of a family that is desperate for healing?
For as much evil as the internet has brought into the world, it is beyond encouraging to see the good, and to participate in the good, that the internet holds.
