I rarely write deep posts. Like, stuff about God - my faith - or even things like what I think of controversial subjects. (Ha. It looks so dangerous and thrilling in italics.) It's not that I'm ashamed to declare these things - or what I believe. I'm not ashamed at all; I'm super proud to be a Christian. But there are two reasons why I rarely talk about these things.
1. I don't like talking about controversial subjects. I just don't. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings; I don't want to cause even minor squibbles in the comment section. I want this blog to be a peaceful place where the extent of the discussions are Pride and Prejudice 1995 vs Pride and Prejudice 2005 discussions (haha). I like reading posts about controversial subjects - and I don't mind reading hefty comment discussions on other blogs now and then (I enjoy reading different opinions) - but I don't like writing them.
I don't quite know why... maybe it's also because very often I don't quite know what I think on these subjects - and then I'm afraid I'll write something I don't mean to write, or that'll write something which one day I'll disagree on. Or if I do have a decisive opinion on a subject, I don't want to come across as a ohh-I-know-it-all-and-I'm-just-really-right-on-this. I don't like writing posts like that, and I feel I can't, either. It's hard.
(And seriously, why would you all be interested to know what my brain thinks on every subject? Sometimes one shouldn't 'say everything what I think on every single subject.' :-P)
2. As for writing posts about my faith - I want to write them, but I always feel I can't. There have been so many times when I've clicked on 'create new post' and wanted to write out my love of God, and share beautiful Bible verses with you - but I always feel like those posts, when I do attempt to write them, don't go deep enough. My faith has grown over these past months and years - and I love God, and I always want to learn more and more about Him - but it's such a big, huge thing, that I find I can't quite express the extent of my feelings and thoughts on it.
But now, with Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter coming on... I want to say that it's amazing. I know some of you don't celebrate Holy Week - but I personally don't know March/April without it. For me, it's a time to really sit still and think about what Jesus did for us - and how His resurrection is a foreshadowing of what is to come. Good Friday is a quiet sombre day - and then Easter day just bursts in jubilations. (I can't write down this paragraph properly. Ha. I told you I couldn't!)
All that is to say - I often grin and ramble about stuff on this blog. Movies, books and the like. But I know there are things more important than that. I want you to know that I know that, basically. :-)
Have a good week, guys, and a very happy Easter! He is risen indeed. Hallelujah!
