Parting is such sweet sorrow.

Alas, my friends, I must say "Adieu" to you.
And to this blog for a time.
It may be a long time.

I am crying over here because of it, but it must be done.

I stress out when I think about writing.
I stress out when I think about how little I have been writing.
I stress out when I sit down to write and then I end up writing about how little I have been writing!

I really do love to write - it's just that I can't do it during this season of my life.
Believe me, I have lots to say about my life right now, but. I. just. can't.
I really wanted to keep up on it.
I hoped it would be my connection with some of my dears.
I really have worried that I will be forgotten once I stop... but that is just a silly fear, I know.

So, goodbye... for now.
Thank you all for your comments, love, support, encouragement, virtual hugs. ;-D
I know in my heart that I will be back someday!

I am sad! I just got a computer I can actually read blogs on w/o having to set aside half a day because of it's slowness. I was looking forward to keeping in touch a little with what you are doing so far away. :(

Wow, this seems kind of out of the blue. Hope everything is ok. Will you be emailing more since you won't be blogging?
And will you continue to read blogs even though you won't be writing them?

Christa Jean, You are such a sweet person. your writing is amazing and very fruitful for the Lord. He will open the door and keep it open when the time is right. Bless you sweetie. Kathi ps I will still come by and visit as long as you keep the blog open.

God takes us all through seasons. Throw yourself wholeheartedly into your season...and God will bring fruit from it! I will leave you with a quote that has been a source of strength during our time of transition this past year.
"Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God."
Jim Elliot
You are loved...even from the far east corner of these United States (ok...that sounded like a poster ad!!)
Love ya!! Pamela

Not worried. I know I'll keep in touch with you elsewhere. =) Anyway, you really must check out the Guilt Free Blogging site if you return to the blogworld. Blogging is all for fun anyway!

I love writing too, and I've had to tell myself that if my blog doesn't reflect that, oh well, I know who I am and so does God; I need to get over my desire to prove it to the world.

So go on! Take a break! Be yourself! Relax!
love ya! ~a

Farewell Christa. It's been an amazing adventure...

Thank you for stopping by Christa. I do hope you can start writing again. You do have a gift. I understand the timing and the seasons of our lives. There is a time for everything. Bless you and have a wonderful Christmas season. Love, Kathi
