I'm Being Called Away...

I am hearing Him call my name...

I have a feeling He has been calling me for a while, but this past weekend I finally quieted myself long enough to clearly hear His voice.

My Shepherds voice.

He's calling me to Himself--into a season of greater simplicity and deeper commitment.

So, with great anticipation and joy, I'm taking a blogging break.

I don't know for how long...and I know my long-distance friends and family will be sad about this, but I hope you can understand...

I consider it an honor to obey my God in such a simple way because He is worthy of so much more than just my hobbies and my habits...but my entire life.
Matthew 6:33
"But seek first the kingdom of God 
and his righteousness, 
and all these things will be added to you."
I'll probably try to update with "big event" pictures as time allows and will check up on all your blogs as time allows as well!

Blessings!!!

See you all soon!

I second Kelly's comment. I love to read your blog and you always inspire me. Please keep in touch-e-mail when you get a chance every now again so I know how you are doing and how to pray for you and your family.
Blessings dear friend-for He is faithful and it is such a blessing when we are faithful in return.

Grace, there are times when this time offline is so important. Be obedient to where the Lord would have you to be. Your blogging friends, including me, will be right here when you're ready to return. :)

Blessings and love,

Oh! I will miss your posts! But I'm so glad and happy to see you obeying God's voice like this! I'm looking forward to your updates again when you come back, and maybe I will keep up with you on MOMYS (I have not been there for a little while, but still check in occasionally) if you are still going to be there? Have a blessed break! :)

Good job, obeying! Sometimes we need to just do everything we can to keep our head in the game. I did a devotion on this and put it on my blog. It is soooo important that we maintain our focus when it comes to mothering.
