Society Today

Society today changes the way we view things or even the things we fear. For example, posting pictures of your children in a public forum can strike fear deep in your soul. You desire to share the beauty of your most priceless treasures, but at the same time you fear it. You wonder if someone couuld view that picture and take it wrong or steal it and use it inappropriately. I have a picture of my baby daugther that is so funny and cute but am hesitant to post it here. I have no idea why I fear posting it. I did post it in some private message board forums, but not here. That makes no sense to me. In the picture she is clad only in pull-ups. Society today does not embrace innocence. Society today devours innocence, chews it up and spits it out. As a mother, I view my children, no matter what stage of dress, as innocent and pure. Yet out there on the world wide web, there are people who corrupt innocence and purity. So I toss in my mind why I hestiate posting the picture here but not in a more private, smaller setting. I am sure no matter where I post pictures they aren't "completely safe". The only safety is in not posting them at all. Yet, my children are beautiful creations, fearfully and wonderfully made by God. I would not post them in their birthday suit for personal reasons but to have to question whether to post a pull up clad baby astounds me. She is the epitomy of innocence, purity, in full bloom. A tiny bud blossoming into possiblity and promise. My children are my treasures, given to me by God. I may eventually post them, but for now I still ponder what I should do. I may post the photo at a later time but for now I will enjoy its silliness and innocence for a bit longer.

I feel the same way about my children. You just never know what or who is out there. Better to be safe.

You have a great blog. :-)
