Granted, I haven't been writing here consistently for quite some time, but perhaps that means that I need to take an indefinite break here. I have so dearly loved this place. It gave me a voice when I needed one. It created so many relationships I can't even begin to say. It is hard letting it go.....for now.
This has been a place to share thoughts, preach to myself, and minister to others. Over and and over it has been confirmed to me that my words here matter. And that they matter to you! And I am so very grateful for that.
Over the past year I have had many changes in my life. My oldest daughter went away to college, a move, loss of some support, husband's work schedule changed, among other things. It has quite honestly been a lot for me to deal with. But isn't that life? ~smile~
I have also learned through the hard times so very much about growing in His grace, love, mercy and forgiveness over the past few years. It has been a sweet, sweet, time of fellowship with Him. I pray earnestly that each of you know that and live that in your own lives. It is the only way I know how to live. It is the best place to be!
So many of my favorite bloggers have stopped blogging for one reason or another. I find I love to go back in their archives and read a post as it applies to my life. For that reason, I will be leaving my blog up...for now.
You are not done with me!! I will continue to write for the Mom Heart blog every month and so you can find me there. I am a writer and will always be a writer and Sally Clarkson's ministry is so dear and near to my heart that I so very much enjoy the opportunity to be a part of her ministry and write for that blog.
My blog has served its purpose in my life....for now.
It has largely been a creative place for me to express myself. I have a feeling I will be back at it at some point. But now is not the right time.
I wish you all knew how much I love and appreciate you all...faceless (and not so faceless) blogging community. You are the best!!
