Finding gold on other blogs

Cathy has written a fantastic post about lifestyle coveting on her blog Women Bible Life. You should read it. It's something I've been thinking about a lot lately but haven't been able to put it into the right words. I'm glad there are people like Cathy out there who can do it much better than me.

In today's online world of reading about people's apparently wonderful lives on blogs, looking at photos full of family fun posted on Facebook, and the immaculate interiors, perfectly styled food, and up to the minute fashion tips you can pin on your Pinterest boards, her description of these as "socially endorsed sin" was painful for me to read. But there is so much truth in this description.

Please read it. I need to pray about a lot of what she says.

I'm hoping my blog never makes you feel that way :-) I haven't read her blog yet, but realised yesterday again that I've set myself up for disappointment by being jealous of other people's apparently perfect relationships with their birth families. But of course people are only going to put the "nice" stuff out there, but it is wrong for me to assume that that is all there is and be envious when my life doesn't match.

Nice to meet you yesterday, though very briefly :). Thanks for the link on this post too. Food for thought there!
