The past few weeks, however, have been filled with heavy things - not much more than at other times, now that I think about it, but combined with the time of year and being sick for awhile and the nature of these particular heavy things, it's become too much all of a sudden. I've sat down a dozen times to try and write something, but my soul simply refused to reveal any more. A couple of feeble attempts resulted in some fake, happy, inauthentic drivel that I couldn't be ok with publishing. The best I could come up with recently was a Facebook status that was more of a whine than anything else...
And now? I just want to hide away for awhile, to be still and listen and heal. To allow my Father to minister to my soul-sores. I'm not sure what that will mean for this blog - I might be back in a week, I might take a year off, or anything in between - it's not clear to me at this point. I want to thank every single one of you for taking the time to peruse these pages, and thank you even more for the support and encouragement and prayers that have resulted. You are a tremendous blessing to me!
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.
