It is Tuesday of Holy Week, and by now, there is certainly the temptation of distraction. In addition to the urgencies of daily life, plans for Easter Sunday are needing attention. If we aren't intentional, Tuesday will slip by without... Continue reading

The very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and strewed them on the road. The crowds preceding him and those following kept crying out and saying: “Hosanna to the Son of... Continue reading

Such great guidance. I do think for anyone with a personal blog (as opposed to a niche-specific blog), the balance between too-much and just-right with how much to share is a constant tight rope walk.

And you are so right - though your life is in the spotlight so much, the privacy thing is one that EVERY person with any element of online living has to settle!
