Sometimes you just need time away. Something deep within you is calling you to the quiet. When that happens, it’s important to listen . . .
As with anything in life, sometimes we just need a little time away to refresh our spirits, fill up, and figure things out. That said, I wanted to send a little note to say that I’ll be taking some time away from blogging, and to share why.
When life gets crazy, and too much is on my plate, I usually sense it in my spirit. For those who may not know me, I’m your ordinary person leading an ordinary life, who sometimes gets a little too much on my plate. I’m a busy home-maker—wife and mom, and the owner of several adorable doggies. I’m also involved with my church and volunteer work, and travel around with my dogs to conformation dog shows. All things I absolutely love! I also love my writing ministry which I do on the side.
At present, I am writing for a Christian devotional, and trying to finish a book project that is calling for attention. I also have two blogs at LeilaGrandemange.com and PawzandPray.com . As many of you know, writing takes inspiration. I’ve never wanted to write apart from that sweet sense of knowing that the words I write come from something deeper within. That something deeper is many things to many people. For me, it’s the fruit of time spent with Jesus Christ, praying, studying His Word, and reflecting on life experiences.
In order to pour out, I need to fill up.
That said, I’m taking a step back from blogging and other social media outlets to simplify my life and nurture my relationship with God, family and friends, while trying to finish my book.
Maybe you’re reading this post and thinking, “Gosh, I think I also need a break from blogging and possibly social media.” You’re feeling that tug at your heart, calling you to the quiet. Let me encourage you to pause and listen. Follow your heart. Take time away if needed, and be refreshed. Here’s some recommend reading that might be helpful:
I love blogging and connecting with other bloggers. There are so many talented, spirit-filled writers out there that share encouragement. I want to thank you for blessing me with your writing. I hope to pop in now and then to say hi, as time allows. See you soon!
“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.” — Numbers 6:24-26
Hope be with you,
