A Season of Life, Or, Why I’m Quitting My Blog
Posted September 26, 2012on:
I’m not even sure where to begin, it feels so long since I have last written.
Life is busy.
Jonathan is working and traveling. A lot. Then toss in his MBA program.
I’ve started an amazing theological/seminary class through our church. It is crazy, and awesome, and totally kicking my butt.
Plus, there’s the whole, training for three major races thing.
Oh, and the kids. Let’s not forget the 3 kids under 5.
I don’t say all this to somehow make my life seem harder, busier, or more stressful than yours.
It’s not really.
In fact, it’s really good. Really crazy and challenging, but good.
I tell you all this, because, life is busy. And because of that I’ve been pretty silent.
Sadly, I don’t see that changing. As much as I love this little blog I’ve created, as much as I love the friendships I’ve made, the lives I’ve touched and the ways I’ve grown through it, something has to give. And for now, blogging is it.
I have realized – I could keep writing, keep cranking out content. But it wouldn’t be from the heart. It wouldn’t be what I really want to say. It wouldn’t be what you really want to read. It would just end up being words on a screen. And I don’t want that.
For a while, I carried some guilt for not writing. Like there was a level of expectation set and I was failing to meet it. But that’s not true. I know that. You know that.
So for now, my sweet, dear, friends, I’m saying good night. I’m going to put Loved Like the Church to sleep for a now. I’m going to focus on this new season our family is heading into. And hopefully, one day not too long from now, I’ll be back, sharing my life with all of you again.
