I know, it has been a while. It is a long story, full of adventure and heartbreak and revelation. Eventually I will share it all.
Earlier today I posted a book review. If you scroll down my page you will notice I am signed up with Tyndale to do reviews. The book which arrived at the beginning of the month had been ordered a while ago, before it was even released, and, honestly, I totally forgot about it!! None-the-less, it came, I read, and I gladly fulfilled my end of the deal which involves a blog post and two online store reviews.
Funny thing, how books can open doors. This one by it's real conversational content and grace-filled perspective on sharing faith with others. But also, as I have prayed over when God would have me return to the blog, I felt this book opened a door to begin the conversation about why I have been gone and when I am coming 'back'.
I have been on sabbatical.
All part of that long story, full of adventure and heartbreak and revelation. As I started down the rocky path last spring which ultimately led to a full shut-down by end of summer... I knew I needed time for quiet and prayer and searching.
I don't know if this book was God's way of saying "It is time"... time to get back to the blog and life as a writer. But I do know it was time to touch base with YOU, my dear reader, and let you know I am constantly thinking of you, praying for you and praying for when I can return to share heart renderings and hear heart renderings.
I'm still here. Quietly listening. Please feel free to contact me any time. I will be back.... soon I hope and when I still pray.
