Seasons of Change

It's been almost one month since I felt led to take a blog sabbatical.  The time has flown by! For those who were wondering, I am not working on a book.  I have been working on my articles and devotions, though. 

It has been a sweet time with the Lord.  My husband and I focused on the Lord and on His leading in our lives. We also ended up with almost two straight weeks with the kids at home, due to the snow. The meteorologists said that we have had more snow here in Virginia than in Buffalo New York!  Crazy winter.

I've missed visiting with all of you, and reading your encouraging comments.  I look forward to reconnecting with you all over the next few weeks.  I will be taking it slow as I need to stay focused on my "writing for publication" goal.  At this time, I am not ready to recommit to Thankful Thursday's postings.  Perhaps some time in the future I will take it on again, but for now I need to keep it light and loose. 

If you're here reading this post, leave me a comment so I can re-connect with you!

Acts 2:28  "You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence."

Good to hear from you...and thankful you are a woman after God's heart, following HIM!

We even got 9 inches of snow where I live in TEXAS so this has been a CRAZY winter!

Take care!

Was glad to see your post. I don't always comment but I do visit.

We've thought about leaving NY and moving to Virginia...we're rethinking that move. :)

So glad you've have some "slow down" time- you are so wise to listen to that calling when it comes!

I think the winter snows have created some "together at-home" time for families all over the country this year. We are used to is here in Wisconsin.:)

Take care,
Linda C

I understand about the need to "focus" - that's a challenge for me. Many blessings to you as you follow the Lord's plan for you!
