Today I’m writing with the Five Minute Friday community, on a Tuesday. What can I say, life has a way of getting in the way sometimes. Today we are writing on the word prompt “Once”.

Once upon a time there was a woman who started a blog. For over 12 years she wrote and encouraged other women in their walk with the Lord. She wrote 3-4 times a week, hosted link parties and spent hours each week reading comments and visiting other blogs. She even self-published a book which was a huge accomplishment.

Over the last few years though, this women grew weary of writing. She hit some spiritual bumps in the road and had to step way back in order to gain some perspective about her life’s purpose and healing for her broken heart. She missed sharing her life with others, and tried to say connected with those she had grown to know and love for so many years.

A couple of months ago this woman decided it was time to begin sharing her heart again. Even though her blogs may look different (not so spiritually focused, although God is always in the center), she decided to take a leap and begin a brand new blog.

Once she made this decision, the woman deleted her old blog. Yep, she did that thing they say never to do! She decided that she wanted to start with a clean slate. Even though she didn’t know who was still “following her”, she hoped whatever she shared would be a blessing a bring a smile to someone’s face.

If you are visiting here, I am so thankful for you and I am looking forward to getting to know you more. If you’ve been around the blog world with me in the past thank you for hanging in there with me.

    Barbie, I recognized you when you commented on my post. I realized I hadn’t heard from you in a while on FMF. Sometimes, we have to say no to things in order to say yes to something else that is calling to us. Glad you are back.
