Remember when I was ALL ABOUT New Year's resolutions??
The thing is, I didn't offer either of them up in prayer. I just made an arbitrary decision -- one that I thought would be great -- one that would only add to the fullness of my life.
When I began this blog, I merely wanted a space to write down my thoughts on God and share with some close friends. Right before Gwendolyn arrived, I started having this idea of reaching out into the larger blogging community -- sensing a pull to reach a larger audience.
And that happened.
Things were looking up. I was writing up a storm. I was commenting on and linking to other blogger's blogs. I was making friends. I was growing.
It was healthy.
But then: something changed.
I don't know how to explain it. It's all very layered. But the bottom line -- and the thing you need to know -- is that I need to close shop. EOS has done what it has set out to do.
But I'm done.
I need to move on. There are other things in my life that need attending. There are projects to be researched. There are gardens to be tended. There are babies to be bounced and cuddled. There are novels to be read (and written, perhaps?). There are scripts to be acted out. There are songs to be sung. There are roads to be sprinted on.
There is a world out there. And right now, I just don't have the time or energy for the blogging world.
I'm fairly sure I'll return to blogging at some point -- when I have more down time, when I'm able to put forth the effort it requires. But not now.
And so it gives me great joy and a sense of freedom to say:
It has been an awesome three and a half years. Thank you for joining me on this journey. I hope to meet you along the way again someday.
This entry will be up for a week or so, and then I'm literally closing shop for good.
