Such an odd feeling; knowing that you are presenting your child (figuratively speaking) to your community and the world for approval. Everybody says to your face, "oh how wonderful (cute, sweet-fill in your own descriptive). But what do they say out of earshot?
Beginning today, I'll find out. With the pre-release announcement for The Singularity (my newborn), I'm not so concerned with negative criticism (OK maybe a little concerned); I'm not even too worried if people judge the child's quality by the parent's actions. I'm much more fearful that others won't react at all: Won't comment, won't respond, won't engage in the upbringing of the prodigy.
I don't want this to be about me God, but how You are involved in my child's life. If no-one else recognizes it's quality, does that cast a shadow on Yours and my relationship?
Not my will, but Yours be done. Let the world know, whether through my procreation or Your perfect creation; You are God.
I've learned that the best way to keep myself honest with my Creator and my creating is by sharing life as it happens. Blogging is the day to day exercise for my soul
