I’ve been quiet on the blog for a while now, and I thought it had been that I was simply dealing with a very hectic year and several huge life events, but now I’m not so sure.
Lately I’ve been feeling like maybe I should be writing a bit differently on the blog and that the direction might lead to a bit more structure and with different topics.
It starts with the title of this blog. Redeemed Rose. The rose is my favorite flower and I am a Christian, hence the redeemed side. By saying I’ve been redeemed, I claim that I am no where near perfect and my family can attest to that, but I am forgiven and I have given my life to God. I want to do things His way, and I think having a blog purely dedicated to knitting isn’t the way for me to put him first.
So I’ll be revamping the blog a bit, there will still be knitting, and sewing, and all around craftyness. But there will also be things that are a bit more current to my situation and some personal articles based on research as I deal with things that I struggle with because just because I say I’m a Christian also doesn’t mean my life is perfect and that I have no struggles. Through this just maybe some other woman who has struggled the same way I have will find encouragement and support or even just the sense that she is not alone when the current culture wants to do nothing but beat you down for feeling differently from everyone else.
So far I’m thinking that the basic outline I’m aiming to go for will be something like this:
Entry: Things that have gone on that week, general reviews and thoughts or an essay I’ve worked on.
Knitting: If I’ve been knitting on anything lately, since I’m hoping a weekly schedule will get me a better balance and give more of an opportunity to get pictures from the camera to the blog more efficiently.
Sewing/Crafting: If I’ve done something besides alterations.
Closing: I’m thinking I’ll be picking a Bible verse that has meant something to me or that I’ve found encouraging that week.
Hopefully this will allow for more and better pictures and more regular posts and maybe this blog can turn into something more productive than just a few pixels hanging in the nether.
