Conforming

I have succumed to the peer-pressure, jumped on the band wagon and entered the world of blogs; after all "everyone was doing it". Is this just a case of conforming? In this situation I don't think so. But it makes me think of all the times my decisions or choices are based on a desire to meet others expectations or in an attempt to earn their appreciation and respect. I confess it is a powerful motivation at times.

Gives me a greater respect for the man Jesus was. Everyone wanted him to fit into their molds. Yet He never conformed to the desires of the crowds, the religious experts and leaders, or even his friends. He knew who he was and God's plan for His life -and he lived it. Just another way I want to be more like Jesus.

Liz, I know the feeling about peer pressure about blogging because I joined in as well. But its great that you did because now it will be a lot easier to see what is going on with you since I miss our chats and tetris (spelled wrong I think) playing in class :) The good ol' days.
Well, I guess that is all I have to say expect for this: if you ever get bored and need to read something funny or boring come and check out my blog.

Conforming to an art like blogging means you actually have to do it more than once ;)
