If you haven't noticed, I've been on an "unofficial" break from blogging for a while now.
I didn't really intend to abandon you. I'm quite fond of you, my fine blogging buddies. And I love sharing my life and experiences with you.
And yet I've been mysteriously sucked into the blogosphere vortex. Drafted for an episode of "Without a Trace." Rendered more elusive than a good-paying job in this sad-sack economy.
Well, I can't go into complete detail, but I think I owe you an explanation:
1.) I'm in a dry spell. Normally, I'd think of that as a negative, but I'm seeing it as a positive right now. I'm taking this time to get closer to God and He's revealing to me some weak spiritual areas in my life and is exposing some lies I believe -- about myself and about Him. I'm actually enjoying taking this break from writing and just concentrating on deepening my relationship with Jesus.
2.) I'm concentrating on family. I just feel like I'm in a period where my kids need some extra attention, so I've cut my activity level over the past five or six months. Again, I'm enjoying this. I'm seeing fruit from this.
I am confident I will be back. I'm not sure when, but I think it will be sooner rather than later. But instead of limping along like I have been lately, I've decided to just take the pressure off myself, enjoy a break and, God-willing, come back renewed and stronger.
In the meantime, I will miss you.
