Taking Time Away from Blogging and Why

lg TAKING TIME AWAY FROM BLOGGING 2.jpg

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 figures things out. That said, I just wanted to send a little note to say that I will be taking some time away from blogging, and to share why.

Perfect Peace

Perfect peace

Peace …

Sweet, perfect, peace.

That’s what I want today. That’s what I want for all my family and friends. No doubt, you want that too.

Today, like any other day, holds endless possibilities for our emotions, often based on our circumstances. Given the uncertainty of the world in which we live, I’m so thankful that we have this promise—

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” -Isaiah 26:3

Knowledge Without Love

Love Matters

Knowledge without love (compassion, patience, kindness, integrity…) doesn’t usually go far in influencing others. Love matters! Above all, people need to know we care about them- defenses are lowered, walls come down, doors open, frowns turn to smiles and real communication begins.

Typically, we think that talking is the best way to influence others. We work hard to prove our points and push our agendas. But often it’s our ability to listen and sincerely care about what others are saying that has the greatest influence. Only then, by God’s grace we may have a platform to speak.

May God bless our relationships, and when times are tough, we can meditate on these beautiful words…

” If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails!”

-1 Corinthians 13
