Hello friends. It’s been a while. Too long, in fact.
I last wrote here in this space back in January, but before that my writing was just here and there lacking any real consistency. For someone who has been blogging for over 10 years now, I’ve often wondered if it was time to hang up this hobby of putting my thoughts down in the hopes of bringing some sort of encouragement or inspiration to those who stop by to read. Even though I’ve been absent more than I’ve been present here of late, blogging has been in the forefront of my mind. I’ve missed this form of processing, but most of all I’ve missed you! I don’t believe I’m ready to give it up quite yet, and I haven’t heard the “it’s time to stop writing” words from the Lord, so I am making a slow way back.
Blogging to me is, and has always been, therapeutic. It has been a way for me to process my thoughts and feelings, as well as a way to record the good things God is doing in my life. After experiencing so much heartache over the last few years, if there is one thing that I need to keep in front of me it’s this truth — GOD IS GOOD, no matter what! No matter what is happening in my life, there is so much to be thankful for, so much to give Him praise for. I am learning to appreciate the little things in life. He’s shown me that it’s not about the big picture, but rather how I’m choosing to live out the precious moments He gives to me each day.I am learning to appreciate the little things in life.

Nothing much may ever come of this second phase of my blogging journey. Who knows how long it will last. I’ve already penned a book and gathered a tribe. I’m not after a huge following or marketing opportunities. What I am after is authenticity. I don’t have a plan and I will not make any promises, but I do know that whatever I do share will be from my real, authentic life. I will write about this hard road I’ve been on with the Lord, but I will also share more lifestyle things such as photos, recipes, and anything else I feel like sharing. Most of you have followed me along my spiritual journey, and I hope you will continue, but I understand if you no longer wish to follow.
For now, I am working on refreshing some of my old content so that I can re-post them and gain momentum. I also hope to begin writing with the Five Minute Friday community again and then we will see where it goes. My words may not hold a lot of depth at first, as I’m struggling to not only find my way back here but spiritually as well. Thank you for accepting me just as I am.
I look forward to reconnecting here and on your blogs. Please drop me a note to let me know you stopped by so that I can come and visit you!
