Signing Off!

I decided that I need to officially sign off from blogging since I never seem to have the time anymore. I truly enjoyed it for a season, but for now, I have too many other things going on in my life to keep this blog going. I met some wonderful people here who were faithful readers and whose blogs I kept up with. Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement and thank you for your wonderful blogs that were so inspiring to me. I hope to continue to drop in to read yours when I am able. And who knows, maybe things will calm down for me one day and then I can write again.

But before I go, let me assure you that everything is well with me and my family. My husband is doing fine and hopes to retire from teaching in about a year from now. My children are both still doing the same things they were the last time I wrote about them. I still work at the same job, though my workload has increased greatly and I've been given some opportunities that I never dreamed would happen. I remember an older Christian lady there telling me that she never tried to promote herself, but her promotions came from the Lord. I understand now what she meant. I didn't ask for the new opportunities at work, but they were given to me. I also still play the piano at a church other than my own, and this extra income has helped us with our kids' college expenses. I seem to have more work to do with that job also, as there is new leadership in the church. If my name or my blog ever crosses your mind, please say a prayer for me. Sometimes life can seem overwhelming, but I know that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!

A fond farewell, my friend!

I have enjoyed our friendship. We "met" on September 3, 2007. You read my post about my son growing up faster than I wanted... and you directed me on to your post "Doors"... and we went from there.

I will most certainly be praying for you often... as your music is on my ipod.

Take care. God's blessings! And please stop by and let me know how you're doing now and then...

I can understand. I'm glad that you are going on your own terms and not because of trolls.

But if the Lord leads you back into blogging, you know how to do it.

And I am glad to have been a cyber friend.

See you on Facebook
