A Time Of Silence

I have decided to take a vacation from blogging.  A Blogation, if you will.  I have been writing quite a bit lately for just myself, expressing in words emotions from deep in my soul as we navigate the season we are finding ourselves in.

The past 10 months have brought with it a storm of emotions as we walked through an interruption in moving, cancer, treatments, surgeries, physical challenges, purposes delayed or denied, seeking where we belong in a faith community, and so much more.  We have managed it pretty darn well, as God sustained us throughout, but it all seems to have come to a head now with a "perfect storm" of circumstances joining forces over the past couple of weeks.  It is bringing us to God's feet in rest.  Right where we need to be.


We have found ourselves weary.  Weary of the physical battles that continue.  Weary of feeling the need to define or defend our beliefs no matter where we find ourselves on Sunday morning. Weary of the crap being thrown on the political front.  Weary of the judgement and hate Christians toss out in the name of Jesus or the evil that is flooding our world in the name of a vindictive god that does not exist. We are weary of not seeing Christ's love expressed around us, at us, in us, or by us.    Yeah, weary may be an understatement.

We have begun asking the hard questions of our loving Papa God.  We expect His wisdom as we wait.  He is a good good Father.  We are resting in His promises and still seeking His purpose and plan as we do life in this season.  Silencing my blog and the social media for a period of time will be helpful..  

Blessings friends. Blessings.
