When I once asked my husband why he doesn’t read more, his response was this: “I want to spend time living life instead of reading about others living life.” Though you may find plenty of things to argue with about that statement, you have to admit that there’s also a whole lot of wisdom in it.
After several weeks of consideration, I’ve decided to take a blogging sabbatical. Perhaps I’ll return to it in a few months or maybe not until my chicks fly away from home or maybe never, that’s up to the Lord’s prompting. Anyway, I have felt the need for the last several months to trim away excess demands on my personal time – my desire to read, craft, add to my blog, read other blogs, etc., has been replaced with an increased desire to spend time with my boys. Perhaps my desires are changing as a result of watching my oldest begin trying out his wings, realizing that my time with him grows short. And so, I want to put aside a good thing to spend time on a better thing.
I have so appreciated all of you who have encouraged me in the writing of my blog and for your many kind comments. It is a joy to share life with you all – and if we never meet this side of Heaven, I look forward to looking you up There.
For the love of Him,
