I am going to be completely honest and make a confession to you. I have been having a difficult time writing these "Sunday Blessings" posts. It's not that I don't feel blessed for everything in my life, because I am. I have a great family and job. I live in one of the most beautiful cities and have found a passion in keeping up with this little blog of mine.
When I started Counting My Cupcakes, I decided to dedicate my Sunday posts to take time to reflect on the ways God has blessed me. I want to follow God's word and do everything I do for His glory. I thought a "Sunday Blessings" post would be the way I would write this blog for Him, not just me.
Overtime, I feel like my Sunday posts have become preachy and sometimes very forced. They may not seem forced to you as a reader, but as the writer, I can tell you they are. I enjoy spending time reflecting on all the ways God is present in my life. I want to continue to build a stronger, closer relationship with Him. But recently I have been feeling like a dedicated weekly post may not be one of the ways I do that. Not that there is anything wrong with blogging about my faith, but the way I have been doing it has not been the best fit for me.
I don't want to feel like I am giving-in or being weak by cutting back on these posts, but in this case, quality over quantity is more important. By not forcing a "Sunday Blessings" post every week, I think the overall quality of other posts will increase and the blog as a whole will benefit.
I hope you all can understand where I am coming from here. I would love to know what you think about the slight change. Will you miss a weekly "Sunday Blessings" post or do you mostly read for the recipes and food-related posts anyway?
Thanks for your feedback and continued support. Have a splendid Sunday!
