The Reasons Why

It's been a while since I last blogged.  There are some good reasons why.  I'll list a few here:

I have four children.

One of them is a toddler.

I homeschool another one of them.

The other two keep me bouncing the minute they walk in the door after school.

My husband owns and runs a successful business and although I'm incredibly grateful for this business, I will say that his work is often like a very fast train and it's been a while since he's been able to get off that train.

Another reason I haven't blogged lately is that I got stuck.  I began this blog as a series of little devotionals and while that's all well and good, I found that I wasn't writing at all unless I had a sudden inspiration and the time to flesh it out, meditate on it, and polish it.

Well, for all the reasons I listed above, you can see that my blog was going nowhere.

And I wasn't writing.

So I'm changing things up.

I'm going old school and am going to just begin "journaling," if you will.  If that results in something of value that I can share with someone, then great.

If not, well, at least I'll be writing.

God does something in me when I write.  I can't explain it.  I just feel Him more when I write.  It brings me to places of understanding - and maybe not even understanding, but acceptance.  Peace.

So here I am again.  Choosing peace.
