and from here we break...

As for now blogging has reached a pinnacle in my life, and from this view a break has enforced itself. I wish I could flip one of those old timey book of pictures that due to speed show a beautiful story in reel form, surely you know the kind of which I speak? That is definitely the speed, but the moments and issues of life are evolving daily...full to the rim, poignant, bittersweet, stretching to the uttermost.

Several weeks ago, I wrote a post in my brain. It was entitled, "upon whence she left". One thing I am still learning is that our children belong to the LORD, and their destiny is in His hands too. But letting go of a newly turned eighteen year old just would not register on a scale  in any path of wisdom and discernment as the best thing; add in very strong, influential outside forces, authority challenged, and impulsive brash decisions being acted upon, and you get a trainwreck, of sorts.

"Being submissive to God means you do not have specific expectations
 other than the goodness and glory of God."
Nancy Wilson
   The Fruit of Her Hands

So...to any that would like to know where I might presently be, and why I am silent, plainly stated, I am taking a break. Sometimes it helps to "put it all out there", but then silence might possibly be the inimitable choice, for now.

Sending thoughts and prayers your way Cathy. You have been blogging much longer than myself, maybe for this season life requires your full attention. Blogging comes and goes but God's will and love stand forever. Nancy Wilson's quote is very true - not an easy thing to do.

God bless and keep you all. I hope you will get another blogging season in the future - and I hope I'll be here to read again!

Ahhh....it seems that we are very much in the same season of life. We should talk. Praying for you, please do the same for me.

I sent you an email to the address I've had for a while. Checking to see if it made it to you.

It's a couple of months since you last posted. Hope all is well, or better. I think I understand a bit without knowing your story.

Take care, sweet one.

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
