On Hold

Wow! It's been a long time since I've been able to write anything here. By now, I'm sure most of you have given up on me--at least those of you who don't already know my reasons for being away from blogging.

Several times, I have mentioned here my struggles with organization, time management, priorities, etc. Well, the Lord has been dealing STRONGLY with me in all these areas. I have come to the place that I know I MUST get myself, my family and my home priorities in order before anything else. Because of this, I have been using the computer for email and preparations for shopping. That's it. I haven't been reading blogs, and I obviously haven't been blogging myself.

I'm continuing to work on my home. There is SO much out of order and so much that's need my attention. I'm working more consistently now to get things cleared and cleaned and straighten and FINALLY in order!!! Slow, but steady--that's my goal!

My husband and my children are so precious to me...have I mentioned that??? :)
There is so much that I need to be focusing on for my family. I need to MAKE more time for my husband, more time to meet his needs. I need to spend more time just being with my boys, playing, teaching, going for walks....

And most importantly, I need to have more time with God. Understandably, it's difficult to find or make quiet time with young children, but I am striving towards this more and more. I need it SO MUCH!!!!

With all these realizations before me, I have decided that blogging isn't my priority right now. I miss it. I do, but I have to be faithful to what I know the Lord and my husband want from me.

All that being said, I am putting my blog on the back burner for now. I will try to put in updates every now and then, but don't expect too much. I wish I were more organized and could post lots and lots, but I'm not. I have to accept that, work on it, and know that my blog will be here when I actually have time for it. For now, I'm off to be with my children and work on something in my house.

Nice to read the update. Quiet time with the Lord is SO important. And spending good/quality time with the family, too. I mostly get online after a busy day.

Go get organized! ;)
