This past weekend I had the privilege of attending an amazing conference called Sparkle for women with some great friends. We stayed up way way too late Friday night talking and had to be up way too early Saturday morning. I am definitely running on lack of sleep and my cold is back but so worth it!!!! It is hard to take a picture and not look like I have 4 chins.
The speaker for the weekend was Charlotte Gambill Senior Associate Pastor from Abundant Life Church in England. This woman is amazing! She is a little spitfire, she’s also super funny, I laughed so much this weekend and I just love her spirit. This weekend was pretty much amazing, the worship was fantastic, the decor was over the top, the message was incredible and I have much to process.
Which leads to my little announcement. I’v always tried to keep it real on this blog and share in my struggles with anxiety, miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, children struggling with anxiety and lately with the bitterness and lack of joy I’ve been having. So here I am, sharing again.
I love doing projects around my home, organizing, recipes, marriage stuff and most of all, hopefully inspiring you. I also love reading other blogs, meeting bloggers, chatting on fb with you and even browsing on Pinterest. All of this is good stuff, it really is. Yet, for me, it’s just kind of taken over my life and that’s not what I want for me or my family, I just can’t be the mom, wife and friend I need to be and blog. God really showed me somethings this weekend and I have felt this way before so I know it’s just time to listen and obey. My husband, bless his heart has always been such a big supporter of my blog, I’ve felt this way for a while and have shared it with him but he keeps encouraging me to keep going, don’t give up blogging, you love it and so I keep going. Well I think it’s time to stop and I’m not sure for how long, maybe forever? Maybe just a month? Maybe 6 months? Who knows!
I’ve also considered helping people out in person with organizing, picking out paint colors, etc. I have had many people requesting help recently and also encourage me to start my own business so we will see but first I need to process through this weekend and see where God leads me. Wherever it is, I know it is good.
Thank you all for your comments, emails, phone calls, support and love through this blog. I will miss you all so much and maybe I”ll be back sooner rather than later but until then, God Bless You!!!
