Following My Own Advice From Yesterday



I examined my practices for Lent to see if there were something more I could do. Early this morning as I woke, I realized that my desire to see what, if any, comments had been left on my blog, far outweighed my desire to start morning prayer or any prayer.

That being the case, I underwent a major internal battle to remove the comments from my posts. I considered how inhospitable it would appear, how ungracious, how discourteous, how. . . You name it. The bottom line was that I kept thinking of reasons not to remove the comments because obviously, I was ATTACHED to that lifeline. A sure sign that I needed to do something. So praying, and summoning the strength. . . .
From this point onward, I will be posting without the ability to comment. It's extremely important to remember that this is not because I do not value your comments or your presence, but because I value them far too much. I would rather be with you than be with God--and as wonderful as you all are, that is not the proper order of priorities. I must decrease so that He might increase.

So please forgive me for removing the comments boxes.
