Isn't sabbatical such a pretty word?
Maybe it's because it reminds me of the Sabbath.....
a day that's supposed to be a day of rest.
(although our neighbors must not have gotten that memo....;)
For some time I've felt this blog taking a different turn, but have not been able to put a finger on just what. I was first prompted to start a blog by our daughter, who thought it would be a good way to show some of my crocheted/hand-made items. As I was walking one morning, I felt God speak to me to write for Him, and that's what I've tried to do for the 8 years since then.
Maybe you've noticed that lately I sometimes go several days without posting anything, just for the reasons stated above. I'm really not good at posting trivial stuff, and since I'm not allowed, for privacy reasons, to share pics of our grand-kiddos......:(
I don't like to get into political debates (but I do so much enjoy reading the opinions of some of y'all because it helps me to put things into perspective in my own mind). I don't feel like you all want to see pictures of things that I'd like to have (and to be frankly honest, there are very few things that I even want these days.....
well, except for CHOCOLATE.....
I always want chocolate.....
but I digress).
I've posted in the past pictures of my weight loss progress, but a person can only take so much of seeing pictures of oneself (I'm getting old, people, so y'all don't really want to see a pic of an old(er) gray-haired Nannie, now do 'ya?).
Often, I've felt guilty if I didn't post SOMETHING.....
just ANYTHING. (and there's this family member who makes me feel guilt about this, although I'm sure it's unintentional because my personality insists I feel guilty about something at all times.....;)
Is this leading to something?
I can't even answer that question.
I'm going to post when God puts something on my heart that is gonna make me burst if I don't share it (my Spiritual gift is prophecy.....
and mercy and encouragement.
(No, I'm not a prophet, it just means when God shows up and shows off, you've gotta let others know all about it.....
although, maybe my Momma shouldn't have named me Debra....LOL)
I also want to share with y'all that I'm writing a devotional. Actually, it's mostly written already, but still needs tons of editing which I'm in the very slow process of doing.
(if any of you know anything about getting e-books published, PLEASE let me know).
We're still gonna have our Friday Foto Friends.
And, I'm gonna try my best to visit my precious friends. I'm just feeling the need for a sabbatical!
A time to just (be) Present!
(my 2016 words)
HOPE everybody has a Wonderful Wednesday!
See 'ya Friday!
Love and blessings to y'all!
