Nathan will leave us in August of this year to go away to college and study electrical engineering. This, too, will be bittersweet and will have its own special anxieties, but, as I am with Bryan, I am happy and excited for Nathan. He has grown up with tremendous challenges, and, with the most beautiful heart of acceptance and obedience to the call of God upon all areas of his life, he has walked with his Lord and has come out the victor in the strength of Christ! I am so incredibly proud of him! Because of Nathan, I have learned so much about submitting to the Lord's will, even when that means suffering and sadness. I know that God has him in the palm of His hand, and I'm excited to see where He takes Nathan in the coming years!
free ebook, now), and the story has come full circle. I've said hello to new friendships through blogging, said goodbye to others who've gone from the blogosphere, and have enjoyed reading everyone's stories and the sharing of lives. Yet, I have to admit, I'm tired these days! God has brought, in the last 3 or 4 months, big changes to our lives in our church, our friendships, and our responsibilities to extended family. It's been emotionally draining in so many ways, and I'm in need of a time of some "bloggy-hibernation" now. Inspired by the posts written by Laura Booz titled, "Social Media, Behave!," I've decided it's a good time to re-evaluate what all I'm doing online. For the month of January (and maybe February, too), my desire is to use the creative and physical time and energy I've spent at here at Blogger on the things that are pulling me right here in my own home and in my community. I hope to come back after this month's time of rejuvination, if things ever slow down here! I'll try to visit your blogs now and then to keep in touch while I'm hibernating for a while! Some of us communicate via phone and email...that is always welcome!
Leave a note...I love to hear from you!
