To Everything There is a Season
The simple answer is, “I don’t know.”
I fully anticipated returning to it post-honeymoon with glee. But then moving happened. And name-change hassles happened. And work became overly stressful with my boss leaving (I still owe him a fitting farewell post). And 2 funerals popped up in a week at church. And I got diagnosed with Stage 2 adrenal failure. And …and…and…
When I thought repeatedly, “I really need to get a blog post up,” I wanted to cry since it was just one more thing on my ever-bulging plate. Needless to say, posting blogs got shoved to the back burner.
I always said that if my blog became a chore, I would quit. Right now, with my adrenal issues, I’m sad to say that many of my previous loves (including shopping) are now chores.
This is my season to be quiet. To invest in my marriage. To care for my ailing body. To focus my energies at work.
I beg of you this: Please don’t give up on me. I deeply desire to be back in my blogging routine. If I have things to say that I can formulate into coherent thoughts, I will share them, (You can expect one about turning 30…*sigh.) but they will likely be inconsistently scattered.
Please know that this is incredibly painful. For the last 2.5 years, I have loved godandshoes as a creative outlet for my writing. A way to form an online community and keep in touch with those I love who happen to be far away. It has been therapeutic to share my thoughts and have them affirmed (and sometimes challenged).
I covet your prayers and support.
