First, how's NaNoWriMo moving along for you? What have you been up to lately?
I've had many posts planned, so many so many. And I've surely been trying my hardest to write and post them. Really!
May, thanks for tagging me for several nominations / tags! They're in the works, I swear it. I know another thoughtful and sweet blogger hath tagged me, and thee are blessed! But curses upon me, I can not remember thine name! So thank you, good sir (even though... you're a girl...). I do appreciate it, and am in awe that you thought of my tarty soul!
But intentions mean nada. So I'm sorry. :( I've been trying to keep up on this blog, not because I must, because I love to! So please, don't think of it as though The Depth Of my Faith has been a trivial chore! Because nae. It's been a gift to have and continue, and I've learned a million things from it.
But alas, all things must one day come to an end. But no, not a sad and loveless end! But perhaps a joyous end. Of thanksgiving and hearts bestowing joy and laughter! Yes, it completely saddens me to the depth of my heart. But there is good in all losses, I'm sure.
But why are you leaving? Asks ye of sadness and youth. Well, a few reasons, perhaps.
1. I'm a child of God, and I always will be. But even children must one day grow up... and now is my time to grow up and move past simple joys to, instead, bring great passion among all the children. Passion for a love of Jesus Christ. The Lord may have a hard time getting my attention when i'm so focused on my blog. So I must rededicate my time to a more worthy cause. And my faith is important, so with this blog being called the depth of my faith, one cannot simply abandon their cause to only write about it. So, you might understand that the depth of my faith has dug different roots, and is deeper into my heart. My heart is somewhere else now. So... reason number one; My heart has moved deeper and farther away from blogging.
2. As my (beautiful) family gets bigger and bigger, time becomes sacred. So, blogging may not be the wisest use of my time. I have other passions that I would love to pursue. Like art, and evangelism, and obviously, school and summer. I've got friends, and I've got a life that i feel must be lived before it's over. I'm determined to live more for the Lord and no longer for myself. So I'm letting go of something precious to me. There is not enough time to blog and grow in Christ. So room must be made. Stress must be limited.
I was sure this was coming, in the form of a hiatus (which I am still confused on the meaning of the word. But I assume it means a break, because whenever a friend uses the word in a post, they leave for a while shortly after...) no doubt. Due to summer, and my wanting to spend more time reading and lazily lounging in the sun.
For the sweet, sweet hearts who have kindly entered TWPC this month, don't worry! (I'll explain more in a moment.)
I don't know how long my goodbye and farewell may last. I may be back next month, or maybe this fall. Or maybe even next year. But I promise that when I come back, I will announce the winners of TWPC.
If I agreed to do an interview or guest post, (Amelia / Emily) I am sorry, but I must cancel.
I will kindly leave my blog up, and I still love comments, and I look forward to all the lovely comments on the posts and will read them when i return! So please, leave me as many as possible!!! I love emails, so email me and tell me that you'll miss me. *sniff sniff*
And if I never come back... well,
just know that Christ is with me, and He's with you. I'm praying that everyone reading this will one day be Saved.
I always looked forward to your comments, and I never dreaded having to write a single post. I loved reading all your posts, and I certainly had fun commenting on them! It's such a shame, because I just discovered some new bloggers... and now I can't enjoy their content. Keep doing what you all do, because you're amazing!
I know that I won't be accessing my email most of the summer, so I won't be chatting with any of you for quite a while.
Grace, go on ahead with your TWPC posts every month, until I can jump back in. If I never can, feel free to just drop the contest altogether, or give it to Anika. I trust her with my baby. XD
I don't know if I'll continue to write my novel or not, but I hope one day I can pick it up again!
Have a beautiful end of spring, and rest of Summer! Enjoy your vacations and your friends and your pool parties! May christ be with you...
